Hi-what is a bfe?what does it stand for?thanks
Big Fat Envelope. The envelope with the ultimate in good news.
as opposed to "TWE" which is "thin white envelope" which generally is not so good news.
BFE = Big Fat Envelope
This is a cutesy (dumb, in my opinion) acronym used to describe the envelope that typically contains tons of information associated with an offer of an appointment.
Personally, I think all these unofficial, cryptic (to new users) acronyms are dumb. DS = Dear Son? Dumb! Why not just say "my son". DD = Dear Daughter? Give me a break!
TWE? Is it really that hard to write "rejection letter"? That way everybody understands the discussion without the need of a decoder ring.
But I had to save up 20 box tops to get my decoder ring!
Separate names with a comma.
