My stats aren't stellar (3.85UW, 790CR/680M) but for some reason I've been receiving absurd amounts of mail from UChicago. I'm talking two or three times a week. I've gotten more than 50 pieces of mail from them (I piled them all up), including postcards with my name in Gothic lettering, posters, artbooks, full-color fold out campus photos, etc. And talking to my friends, they seem to feel pretty courted if a college sends three or four pieces of mail their way. I'm by no means a hooked student in any conventional sense, is this normal? Or did I manage to get my name copied down ten times on the mailing list?
