When you got email notification from Fedex, do you remember who you said it was from? or even what state?

From UW-Madison I got a 1lb bag of Starbucks coffee, some Tazo tea, and a nice travelers mug with Wisconsin School of Business logo, also a postcard from Madison. Courtesy of alumni working at Starbucks... it''s actually really nice!

KF sends a cool device with 3 videos (I think congratulatory videos)
Alas I have not received it even after 4 months. They sent it via the Indian post and I think it is stuck somewhere :(

Having sent 10-15 packages from our fan store to India from the US, I have to disappoint you - someone else is being congratulated at the moment, watching those videos... only about 2/3 of packages I send to India via India Post make it....

My personal ranking

1) Kelley - Awesome backpack in an awesome box that says: "congrats on arriving at this Kelley moment"
2) Mendoza - Leather business card holder and a nice Notre Dame pin.
3) Goizueta - Moleskin notebook
4) Kenan-Flagler - Digital video congratulating me

So just went to Anderson's Admit weekend and literally got so much swag that I couldn't fit it all into my luggage. Felt like Christmas at a carnival or something. Will try to list everything I remember getting.

Anderson T-Shirt
Water Bottle
Coffee Thermos
Beach matt
6 different pens (with different consulting/tech company logos)
Thumb drive
unveriseral charger
Moleskin notepad
google luggage identifier thingy
large grocery bag
google lunch bag
a full box of General Mills cereal (this seemed particularly ridiculous)
2 separate pairs of sunglasses
Discount coupon to UCLA team store
Restaurant coupons
Candy

I think there were other things but I mean you get the point.

It basically went on forever.

Ouch, Stern! Looks like UCLA is really setting an example here -- probably rivals Fuqua with the free t-shirt giveaways!

As it is that time of year where we all start getting our admit packages in the mail, we have an important question to answer...which b-school sends out the best swag?

Of my admits so far, Tuck's scarf and wool hat are by far the winners. Fuqua is a runner up with a horrible tie, magnet, and calendar. Georgetown brings up the rear.

NOW what about you?


Kelley sent a pretty cool laptop bag with hand-written notes.

INSEAD sent a pin and a hand-size notebook. I was really hoping to swag up with the passport cover they sent out in the previous years. :cry:

Kellogg sent out the portable charger again this year along with a thunderbolt convertor. Pretty nifty, and I didn't have one that worked with my iPhone. They even send you the Fedex tracking number.

None from Stern although they give t-shirts to everyone who interviews.
