i just received a letter from albany letting me know that my application for admission is with the committee. the note also said im invited to call up and schedule a  tour.  my friend applied last year and was denied admission- she doesnt remember receiving this letter( or it might have come on a post card and she forgot).
still dont know if it means anything in my situation since it was sent in an envelope rather than on a post card ( maybe they were fresh out) anyhow, all i can do is hope for the best, right?

thin envelopes from admission committees tend to be ominous... :(

When Hastings accepted me...it was a very thin envelope.  I was completely surprised when I opened it.  All of the info. came later.  The admissions people are just cruel.

I had the same experience with NYU.  VERY thin envelope with a single piece of paper in it.  Same thing with UPenn.

I applied to three law school and got three thin envelopes in response.

One: An acceptance letter.

Two: A letter saying I was on their waitlist.

Three: A rejection letter.

Go figure.

I got a very thin (one peice of thin paper even!) from DU stated I was accepted.  CU sent a bigger manila envelope though - but only with about 3 sheets of paper with the same news.  Thin doesn't always mean it is bad!

I got accepted to 6 schools.  I got everything from thin envelopes to a package so big I had to pick it up at the post office.
