    I know that the letter of appointment comes in a BFE (big fat envelope). But, what exactly does it look like? Is it a white envelope that is packed or is it a big manila envelope? haha Maybe a dumb question, but I have my nom, fully qualified, and my admissions counselor told me that they are reviewing my app and that I should know within 3 weeks. thanks for the info!!:thumb::biggrin::smile::rolleyes::smile::biggrin::thumb:

    My status changed to "Appointment Offered" on 12/11. When can I expect my BFE?
    Also, will be it mailed through fedex or through regular mail?

    Get out! No more "inclosed?"

    My boys' came in a big white envelope. I think I kept it - somewhere.

    Yea, they're all via USPS. I don't think the Academy would be able to afford sending all of them through UPS or FedEx. Also yes to the pictures...there should be at least, I'm assuming they purchase these in bulk...
