Admissions Letter

Approximately how long does it take after you see your admissions notification on the website does it take to get the admissions letter in the mail? I found online on October 28th that I was accepted, but I still can't wait to get the letter in the mail. So, does anyone know how long it takes? :)

    I was told by a rep that it takes at least two business days for them to put the letter into the mail, but my friend told me his took 3 weeks. Congrats on getting accepted, I'm still waiting for my OCT 1st SAT scores to get sent from CollegeBoard...

    But according to the rep, there's not much in the letter you don't see online in OASIS, it's the same financial aid package, with about the same info.

    Please check back and let us know when you get your letter though, I'll be wondering that myself. And do you know how long it took for CB to send them the SAT scores? I heard it should be less than 4 weeks, and it's been almost 3 weeks since CB said they are sending the scores (OCT 18)

    -sigh- I still haven't gotten mine yet. My friend got his letter in the mail, and it was in the letter, not online, that he received things like scholarships he received and such. :/ And I need to know that, lol, I'm poor.

    are you sure you gave them the right address?? like no typos or anything? mine only took like a week to arrive.

    I'm definitely sure I got the right address. I received my acceptance letter to the Honors College today (yayyyy), and that letter says I should have received my regular accpetance letter, which I haven't, lol. So screwed up.

    Maybe the mailman ate the regular acceptance letter?

    He must have! I called USF today, and they had sent it out on the 31st. And I was all "Ummm... I don't think so". So I made them send me a new one. :)
