I just received a nice “swag package” of sorts from a Top 50 LAC.
The package contained a personalized letter encouraging me to apply ED II, some school merchandise (hat/pennant, etc.), some candy, and a fee waiver.
I visited the school a few months ago, and when I did, I had a conversation with my AO. However, I’m surprised that I made that large of an impression.
Considering that the school has an acceptance rate of around 30-35%, should I take this to be an attempt by the college to drive up their yield, or does a package like this mean they genuinely want to see my application?
I want to say “both,” but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.
