Do most schools send the large packet with all the info inside when you get accepted and take all the suspense outa the whole thing? I fear that I will get the small envelope with the WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU...

    Well from my understanding, the fat envelope generally means that you got in. The thin envelope can go both ways, being that some colleges send a small letter letting you know that you got in and then a huge envelope later with all the info. I know that some colleges make the acceptance envelopes "special" by having a huge YES! on it. I don't think that the rejections have NO! though, because that would just be cruel. x)

    I wonder if anybody got rejected when they received a huge packet in the mail. Like the person is opening it like "YES I GOT IN YES!!!" and then there are a bunch of forms and stuff that say "Psych!" on it.
