    Small envelope = Waitlist or rejection
    Large envelope + phone call = acceptance

    I got a small envelope and am waiting for the big one to come in sometime soon hopefully :thumbup:

    Actually last year, my acceptance letter came in a small regular envelope. But this is after I got my call.

    We never really got any "large envelope" now that I think about it.

    Probably a rejection or maybe waitlist. If you got accepted you would have gotten a phone call and the AADSAS status would have changed to offer made. My friend got rejected after pre Dec 1 interview and AADSAS is still blank.

    Why can't your parents open it?

    If it is a waitlist or acceptance you often have to call them to confirm and/or pay a deposit, just have them open it. That's a lot easier, PLUS more helpful than asking us

    Another bit of advice:

    Even if it is a rejection, call to make sure.

    I got a rejection letter from OU and called them. They said, "oh we sent those to all the non-residents who didn't interview this year, disregard it."

    It turns out my residency status was in the wrong category, so I just showed up with my mortgage closing documents from four years ago (buying primary property in-State) with a big, fat signature on everything and they let it go.

    I assume a lot of people just said, "oh well." :(

    ...maybe they are evil and planned it that way. :confused:

    No. Can't be.
