    Regular first class mail?

    Priority USPS....

    Express Mail USPS... with confirmation?? ($12.45)

    I think it's worth the extra dough...

    Any comments???

    I sent all mine in a large yellow envelope. I then called each school within 5 business days to make sure they recieved it. They all did.

    If you want to spend the extra money to send it certified, that may be a good idea as well.

    Make sure you PHOTOCOPY everything that leaves your hands. Don't take any chances.

    Certified USPS with return receipt = ~ $7 with a 2-3 day delivery timeframe. The same for letters of recommendation.
  6. I think the best value is priority mail ($3.50) with delivery confirmation ($0.50). This way you can track your package online without paying the express mail fee. Sending things certified isn't really necessary. If the school really wants proof that you sent it (I doubt they would), you could send them a copy of the delivery confirmation receipt or give them the tracking number.
