Does anyone know if NYU & Columbia email acceptances or only snail mail?

Columbia replied via snail-mail (which sucks because I realized I only had 3 days to finish up fin-aid paperwork and the letter took 2 days to arrive)...NYU sent an email saying they'd compleated the app and would begin review...a week after I'd already heard from BC, Cornell and a few days before I got the Columbia letter.

For confidentiality reasons, I believe that no ABA law school will send acceptance or rejection letters via email.  Only snail mail.  Pisser, huh!

Not so...I heard from both Cornell and Boston College via email long before (several days, anyway) anything showed up via post.  Cornell sent a full-blown "congratulations - you're in!" email complete with graphics and BC sent an invitation to some event that sort of just assumed I already knew I'd been admitted.
