I personally prefer snail mail.  I am less anxious about regular mail decisions because the mail only comes once a day.  Once the mail comes, my anxiety is over - at least until the next day.  Most of the schools I'm waiting on call to accept, so I jump whenever I feel my phone vibrate (or get an email).

What do you guys think?

I'm tied between phone, because it will make you feel special, and e-mail.

email, easier to know the decision before opening than snail mail

Whichever one is an acceptance.

Yeah, a telephone rejection would really hurt.

i don't feel like i can properly answer this poll question; to have a preference implies that you've experienced all three, right?

blk48, I'm really digging on your doggy there.
BLK48 - is your dog weighing itself?  :D

Thanks, my dog's actually standing on my backpack.

E-mail... you find out more quickly, but minus the awkwardness of a phone call.

E-mail.  It's quick and painless.
