Word. Same thing happened with me and Northwestern - but at least their undergrad shells out the 40 cents to send a paper copy - not a PDF rejection.

I just got a little brouchure in the mail yesterday. Not sure if I want to pony up for the flight though - in general, is it a good idea to go to a lot of these? Or would it be better to wait til later and visit individually once I hear from more schools?
Maybe they're email department is completely out of whack with their snail mail department?
Honestly, though, if it was Oregon that made the mistake, I can't see them holding that against you - they should at least make a note of it in your file that THEY were the ones who lost your materials!

Gosh - this is so entirely depressing. And here I was thinking that I was better off because the schools were at least holding on to my application a little longer

I'm sure it couldn't hurt - unless you get really ridiculous and start emailing them obsessively. But I doubt how much a letter of intent can help someone who isn't on the waitlist already or an auto-admit they would have considered rejecting for yield protection. But, again, I'm sure it couldn't hurt. Depending on the size of the school/efficiency of the administration, the email might get added to your file - but I doubt most schools would take the time/effort to print that out.
If you want an addendum added for real, send them a letter asking them to add the addendum (on another sheet of paper) to your file - I figure being direct as opposed to just hoping they'll do it by themselves is your best bet. Best of luck.

Definitely! Can't wait for the sun - and 10 whole days of not being able to obsessively check email/mail box! Hopefully I'll come home to a nice big stack of acceptances, right?!?!?!
Has anyone heard anything from Fordham in terms of merit-based scholarships. I'm being horrible about filling out my FAFSA, (tonight, I swear) but I just want to see if maybe people are hearing anything from them - they've been pretty mum since I got accepted back in January.
