When do the Waterloo acceptance letters come in the mail?

A photo of k4show k4show
I'm just curious, I was accepted last Tuesday and I'm going to apply for a student LOC and they want one as proof of enrollment, I have the email and OUAC but I'm not 100% sure that will be enough. Also I'm curious to see some personalized comments people have said they had on their acceptance letters.

I got mine three weeks after they accepted me on OUAC.

But for student LOCs, don't you need proof of Enrollment? not just acceptance?
If so, you have to wait until after you pick your courses(or until after your courses pick you, as tron probably has no electives). That's what's happening with my resp.

Ah okay, nope according to my account manager "You just need to bring in proof of enrollment or acceptance letter." It's with RBC and they seem pretty liberal as far as I can tell. If not I'll just wait.

I hope it comes before June 2nd. Having a physical acceptance package in my hands makes university seem more real. Maybe it's just me.

Edit: Oh yeah, I got one from Waterloo already. It took a good 2 weeks+ to get to me, after I got the offer.

I got mine last Friday~! Only one of them though, I'm sure the postal service is sending them all through different paths so as not to draw attention from thieves.

I'm sorry but who wants to steal my acceptance package?
Someone who's jealous that I got into the program and wants to replace me?
I realize there is personal information in there, but I don't think thieves are why Waterloo takes forever to send out acceptance packages.
I think they're just sloooooww.

To answer the OP, Waterloo Acceptances take forever. I got accepted on April Fools Day and didn't get it for about a month.

I was being sarcastic; there's no reason for the loo to send them at different times, especially since I got all the acceptance emails within 10 hours of each other.

Omg, it turns out they did mail out my acceptance... But it ended up in the wrong mailbox. :s
One of my neighbours just came knocking on my door to give me the mail!

Thank goodness the guy was kind enough to pass the mail onto me quickly!
