Bruin04--it's a 9X12 envelope. I also got two little envelopes from the women's association and an ad for the preview thing. Nice "Pick us anyway!" touch, I guess.
Adverseeffect--I'm going to go visit Penn & Cornell (on the off chance that I hate Penn or discover that Ithaca is the city I've been searching for all my life, LOL). But yeah, I can't swing too many visits out east, either. A two-day preview becomes a four day ordeal with travel time (not to mention the cost).
Good luck with your long distance relationship. Mine has been awful, but, in reality, we still manage to see each other quite a bit (once every 4-6 weeks). But we lived together for a year right before he moved, so not seeing him daily has been a horrible adjustment.
