Does anyone know if there is any significance if a specific college contacts you through either email or regular mail (without any form of personal request)? For instance, does it really mean anything if you've gotten about 5 information packets from NYU and an email from Yale? just curious.

some schools just want to increase the applicants and rejections to appear more selective, thus increasing their position in the ratings game, and the cost of the mailout materials is more than offset by the application fees, some even outsource this form of marketing; NYU and Yale get more apps from well-quailfied students than they can possibly accept; that said, it depends on what they sent you and what school-you could be in a target group they are trying to increase
