    So today I got all excited cause a big envelope showed up in my mailbox from WashU. Frantically I open it.....and.....it's an application to the biomed phd program. and here i thought i was getting an interview or something exciting.
    i'm sure there's other threads on stuff like this out there...but i just wanted to vent a bit. damn the big envelopes!

    Beware of Tufts! I gasped when I saw the thin envelope, but it's just an app complete notice. Wish these schools would be less cruel & just use postcards for app status.

    I had the same thing happen to me with Case. The envelope that came in the mail was paper thin... but when I opened it, it turned out to be an interview request... phew!

    Unless they changed it, CWRU's acceptance letter is also a one page letter... paper thin. So don't flip out.

    I feel your pain. I got a big envelope from them with a brochure about all the people I could possibly interview with. Thinking that there's no way they would possibly take $5 to ship me a huge book, I felt confident about a Wash U interview. Now, I'm hold for interview there, which probably means I'll get a nice rejection letter in a couple of months. They even sent me that invitation to apply there last year!

    Blah.

    Same thing happened to me last year when I was on their waitlist. Got a big, thick 8.5"x11" envelope in the mail out of the blue, opened it, and it's a bunch of financial aid forms. Boo! :mad: +pissed+
