I shall arrogantly tell you how my friends found out about my acceptance to college.
I posted this as my Facebook status:
Thomas Levine is appalled at Cornell University's use of Arial in the "Congratulations" banner.
Then I posted this image with the following comment.
I think they normally use Frutiger everywhere else. Why did they have to use Arial here? If they have Frutiger, they must also have Helvetica.
That really was the first thing I noticed after I realized that I had been accepted.
