How are Stanford rejections worded?  Do they say "unable to accept your application" or do they use the term "reject"?
All I remember is that ugly tree on the envelope.  Then came a few drinks, some tears, and angry sex.  The rest is history. :D

Haha...  "Angry sex" seems to be an oxymoron.

Oh, no, my friend. You are sadly mislead. ;) ;D

Ah, let me reference my rejection letter that is sitting right in front of me.

Dear Ms. Photogrl:

Although the Admissions Committee recognizes your fine academic record of achievement, we sincerely regret that we are unable to offer you admission to Stanford Law School (because judging by your avatar, you look like you belong at Boalt and not our crappy school).

We hope that you will understand that in selecting an entering class of only 180 from an applicant pool of about 5,200, the competition is quite intense (no Stanford, I had not realized that.  Thank you for pointing it out).  Inevitably, we must deny admission to many very worthy and well qualified candidates.

It is never a pleasant task to advise that an application has not been accepted, but we are much encouraged by the fact that our applicants are so well qualified that most will gain admission to one of the many other fine law schools around the country.  We hope that this will be true in your case and wish you every success in your law studies and in your future professional career.

Kiss my grits,
Faye Deal

So there you have it.  I have taken a couple of liberties in the reproduction, but it's pretty accurate.   :)

And Ruskie's right about the foliage; there's some sort of a leaf on here that does not look all that dissimilar to a pot leaf.  Suspicious... ;)

yeah, i got me one of these as well  ;) since i'm not a big california person (i'm more east coast i guess) i'm glad my first ding was from a school that i would go to if admitted due to the name, but wouldn't make much sense for me to go to in the first place.
