Silly Question about applications

  1. Feb 16, 2007 #1
    I am sending in applications for REU's and I am wondering if I should send them in large letter size envelopes, or just fold the application materials and put it in a smaller regular(?) size envelope? Does it even matter? Thanks!

    edit... Also, if I use a larger size do I need more stamps (postage)? And, if I use the regular size with 7 or fewer letter size pieces of paper would I need more postage?

    As far as the people receiving the materials are concerned, I don't think the envelope matters. As for postage, it's best to just take whatever envelope you choose down to your nearest post office and have them weigh it to make sure it has the right amount on it.
