Mail Call!

Via Snail Mail:

  • An uncharacteristically artsy folder from CU filled with an assortment of random information including maps of Boulder, maps of Colorado, maps of the campus, bus schedules, schedule of events for the Admitted Students' Day, and the pies de resistance: an assigned reading for the fake class during this event. Do other schools have assigned readings for their preview weekends? Quel suprise!
  • Our first wedding present! A beautiful set of fancy dessert plates. It will be such a nice, new experience to have grown up stuff.

Via Voice Mail:

  • A message from a professor at Vermont Law School, letting me know that I could use him as a resource for whatever questions I may have about VLS, law school in general, and what it's like being a lawyer. VLS is such a nice, caring school.

Via email:

  • Random messages on the listserv set up for admitted students by Lewis & Clark. I think it's really smart to set up email lists, discussion boards, etc. for admitted students. Creating a sense of community before those deposit due dates is a great way to keep the school's name in mind and to get students excited about attending.

I got my Cornell assigned reading today in .pdf via email. They were kind enough to note it was optional.
