On the eve of my return to my alma mater, I was pleased to learn that the Johnson School at Cornell University used SightSpeed Video Mail to let student's know they had been admitted!

Dean Dove Tells the Good News
I remember how excited I was to hear the news. To hear that you were admitted from a smiling Dean Dove is all the better.
