2. Rice: An elegant Ballpoint Pen with 'Rice Business' imprinted, a Notepad, Acceptance Letter
3. Marshall: Nothing sent. Online only
4. McCombs: A passport holder
5. MSU Broad: A folder, a notepad, a book by Eli Broad, a pen, a calculator. #swag
6. Carlson: Only Acceptance letter
7. Kenan Flagler: A very cool video Brochure, three welcome videos
8. Olin: Nothing yet.
9. Fisher: Nothing yet.

Here is what Boston university's SWAG looks like -> Two A4 SIZE SHEETS OF WHITE PAPER.
That's right. I opened up this HUGE Fedex parcel and just found 2 sheets of paper which had the admit information and Scholarship T&C

Now, unless these A4 sheets are somehow Gold-Plated -> I would BU has disappointed me in terms of SWAG!

CBS gave a water bottle and a book...but we got some pretty sweet hats and gloves at an on-campus event


Hello from a fellow CBS admit! I was wondering - when did you get the water bottle and book? I was admitted last December and have not received anything in the mail yet (apart from the admission letter). Although I have not paid the second deposit or completed background check yet ...

Tepper sends a basic Tile in a pretty slick package overall. Fed Ex too so got here pretty quick even though I'm in Canada.

I saw some other admits got a scarf as well, but my Tuck Admit package was the admission letter, some literature on the program, and this winter hat.

Looks silly but it is warm :grin:

Got my "big envelope" today from HBS admissions. Made an unboxing video for my family who are not around. It was pretty fun! Sharing here just in case anyone is curious.

The pop-up card in the thumbnail image looks like a Lovepop card. The founder(s) went to HBS. That's a cool idea on their part.

Got the hat/scarf thingy from Tuck and just a letter and a brochure from Kellogg...pretty disappointed so far. The pop up card from HBS looks so cool. I thought Kellogg used to send portable chargers but I guess they don’t do that anymore.

I’ll see what Yale SOM and Wharton surprise me with.

Yale SOM so far has sent the best swags through mail! Four letters included in the portfolio with one even personalized. Very nice.

On the other hand, Wharton has sent one letter. Literally a letter...

Haas sends a compendium in similar fashion to Yale, with a welcome letter. This is after commitment though.

Ross gives you a t-shirt and drawstring bag at their admit weekend. They also mailed a Ross flag that arrived the week after, I imagine it was sent before I went to GBR.

Kenan Flagler sent their video device thing that others have mentioned.

I applied to eleven schools and got offers from eight. The best swag that I got was from Indiana Kelley. They sent a really nice backpack. Notre Dame Mendoza sent a notebook and portable phone charger, which was nice. Booth sent a scarf that was cute and nice to get in the winter. I wouldn't base a decision off of swag though...
