    Anyone else ever get correspondance from a med school at strange times or days? Just two days ago, I got an email from NYU at 11:59pm, and I got an email today from someone at Penn State - Thankgiving day!

    It might not be them (personally) sending it at that time. It could be send automatically by thier computer/e-mail system or something. Who knows about the mail thing...lol.:)

    To avoid network congestion, I would hope that university computers would be scheduled to send out mass emails during off-peak hours.
