But if you buy condolence cards then it's like saying 'It's obvious you were going to get rejected so we bought this in advance'.

If you buy congratulation cards then it's like saying 'You deserve to get in and we never assumed you would get rejected so we bought this in advance'
Yeah, this. Congratulation cards, though a little stinging if she didn't get in, are overall a better idea imo!

:laugh: but that would show lack of faith and might offend.
Ah, you lose either way. Forget the faith bit. In such situations, pessimism is always the best policy, and I'd rather offend someone's sensibilities because I wasn't 100% sure they'd get an offer than risk adding insult to injury

Or you could just not be a cheapskate and buy both, whipping out the necessary card once you find out.

I've got the ultimate solution. You buy a neutral card, with a cat or a dog on or something, then write on it when you find out if it's an offer or rejection.

Yeah, that's a good idea.

So who's buying the card? :ninja:

Well we can all give you some money towards it :p:

I want to know too!... I wonder if the OP realised quite how many people would want to know what the status change was....

Yes, I see a hasty username change to avoid the plague of obsessive PMs..
