Enrolled 09’s: Watch Your Mailbox

Posted in: Miscellaneous

I've been getting a lot of questions about the Next Big Mailing (NBM®). Here's the scoop - it's not sent out by admissions, rather, it's handled by the ARC - so my knowledge thereof is a bit limited. I just spoke with my friend who works in that office, however, who showed me the enormous pile of folders they have waiting to go out.

So here's what I can tell you...

1) They're going to start mailing them in the next few days and will continue to do so over the next week or two. By the middle of May, the majority of you should have received them, but don't worry if it takes a bit longer. They are not all mailed at the same time, so if your friend has received his/hers and you haven't, don't be concerned.

2) They are mailed via regular mail for domestic students and via DHL for international students.

3) When possible, the ARC likes to include a student's visa-related stuff with this mailing, so some international students will likely receive the NBM® a bit later to allow time for this.

4) The vast majority of this mailing's contents can be found here and here, so if you're in a huge hurry, follow those links.

Hope this helps!
