just wondering, do acceptance letters always (usually) come in THICK envelops?

no, my friend got a letter from SEMO that was just one sheet of paper saying "congratulations, you've been accepted, we'll send the rest of the stuff to you later"

they tend to be thickER than denials, but i can't see why theyd be thicker, it's only a paragraph either way right?

Often times, acceptance envelopes also contain their class book, dorm information, and maybe even a car bumper sticker. A rejection letter would not have any of these things.

I got an acceptance letter than was one page, too--but it also said 'congratulations' in huge letters on the envelope.

Do not throw away your thin letters without reading them. I too got thin acceptance letters - one for college and another years later for grad school. Both said essentially: Congratulations... Packet to follow.

Can't you imagine some cruel admissions officer throwing a rejection letter in an envelope with "Congratulations" in a huge font across the front? I sure can.

Mine were all in large envelopes, but they were thin. I got into Purude, U of Michigan, and Michigan State.

"Congratulations, you've been rejected! Thanks for applying!".
Oooh, that would be the cruelest joke ever.

I recently got admitted into the University of Cincinnati (OH) and their envelope was definately super small . Let's just say that any mail ive received from them was way larger than their acceptance letter. i can't comment on any other schools but when i receive Pitt's I'll let you know

Top private universities and colleges usually send a booklet or two with the acceptance letter, so the envelope is thicker. the nice places are those that notify you by e-mail too.
Macalester College sent me my acceptance letter in an envelope saying- YOU ARE IN.
University of Southern California and Rutgers sent me huge booklets with the acceptance letters.

funny you mention it. My spouse teaches at a Boston based U and managed admissions for one of their grad programs last year. The admissions office sent out accept letters to several applicants that were supposed to be rejected.
|By Sidestoner (Sidestoner) on Friday, November 14, 2003 - 05:53 pm: Edit|
I say admissions offices clear up the confusion and do away with the envelopes altogether for the rejects--just a post-card that says "Wish you were here?"

"wish you were here" creates its own confusion. if i were rejected by a college and it sent me that letter, i would feel like they wanted me to go there.

I only have one accept letter so far and it was huge- 8.5 x 11 envelope with two booklets inside... and the envelope said "get ready" on the outside (UIUC). Really nervous, though, about the early action envelopes coming in December!

i think sidestoner means "[don't you] wish you were here?" not like most postcards which say "[I] wish you were here."

I know one thing..........if it's thick, you're in.....if it's thin, it could go either way....they're not stuffin it with tissues if you're rejected.
