    Most probably true yes. But you'll never know until you open it.
    I think it has to do with thickness though. One paper is usually rejection

    It most probably differs from Uni to Uni but for L'pool last year I got a small envelope and it was a rejection - it contained just one piece of paper. For UEA this year I got a bulky envelope and it was an interview. Kinda makes sense - they give a form to send back, a map/directions etc so the letter's bound to be bigger.

    ...or just check ucas track, its more likely to come up on there quicker than any snail mail, whatever the size of the letter.

    Also it don't take Einstein to figure out that

    Rejection - 1/2 Sheets of paper = thin envelope

    Offer - likely to be more sheets of paper = thick envelope

    Interviews are not recorded on the UCAS system.

    It is not true in the slightest. A lot of universities don't send you a rejection letter and those that send you an offer or an unconditional often don't send the information pack,about the course, right away.

    So,a thin envelope may or may not be a rejection but could be an offer or an unconditional.

    I got my Durham offer in one of those white envelopes that are about 1/3 of a piece of A4, and it only had a two sheets of paper, I think. I was so convinced that it was a rejection that I read it (skimmed it) and showed it to my mother saying 'Well that settles it, I'm going to Sheffield' and she was just 'o_O?! But this is an offer...' As it happens I went to Sheffield anyway, but that's by the by.
