<p>So as the decisions time approaches (or it has already passed for some) I started thinking if I should check the admissions decisions online or wait for the actual letter to come in my mailbox.</p>
<p>Online: Fast, easy, no more anxiety over "admitted or not" but when the envelope arrives in the mail, you already know your results so opening it kills almost all the fun.</p>
<p>Letter (snail mail): More time to wait, being tempted to check online (especially if you check back on CC and see everyone's results), anxiety grows more, BUT there's this once-in-a-lifetime movie moment of opening the envelope that will reveal where you'll possibly be (or not) next year. (by "once in a lifetime" I don't mean only one envelope but just that one period in your life)</p>
<p>I'd really like to have the movie moment and feel my heart pounding in expectation while I open the envelope and finally read the decision, but then again, online quick&easy decisions seem to cut down on stress a lot.
So I might wait for the first decision to come in my mail and then check the rest online or... I don't know.</p>
<p>What are you going to do and why?</p>
