Hi teachers,

1. I've seen "mail in your application", but is it grammatical for "mail the application in"?

2. Why isn't "mail out", since you're mailing your application to the university, shouldn't it be "mail out"?

3. Does "send in" have the same usage too?

Thank you.

1. I've seen "mail in your application", but is it grammatical for "mail the application in"?-- Both are OK when using a noun, but only 'mail it in' is possible with a pronoun.

2. Why isn't "mail out", since you're mailing your application to the university, shouldn't it be "mail out"?-- You can mail it out from your house ('I mailed it out this morning'), but the university is asking you to mail it in to them.

3. Does "send in" have the same usage too?-- Yes.

Hi Mister Micawber,

Thank you very much. Just to see if I'm understanding well.

You mean, if I'm applying to the university, it would be incorrect for me to say: "I haven't mailed in my application."?

No, that's good. You were asking about the possibility of 'mail out', which is what I was answering to.
Hi Mister Micawber,

Now I really understand.

Thank you.
