A few days ago Tulane made a mistake. I am not saying its their fault, I really did not put the effort into this application that I did my others (at first I wasnt sure I wanted to attend, but the school is fairly close to home so I applied). After looking into the school further it became one of my top choices. I am sorry that Tulane did not realize what a wonderful candidate they rejected last Friday and I apoligize to the school for not making myslef a more attractive applicant (and in doing so Tulane will not benefit from having another fantastic student).This is kind of a bizarre post. I'm sorry that you didn't get in, but I can't tell if you're being tongue and cheek or not...And how much work did it actually take to do the Tulane app? It seemed pretty straightforward to me? I mean, very conventional/vanilla...
Your right that there wasnt too much more to do for the Tulane app (although it was 5 pages long where my others were all about 2). I think the real place I could have improved was my personal essay. I used a generic one that I didnt personalize for the school. Also it was about 700 words long, much longer than the suggested 250 words.
When I say I could have put more time in my application I mean i should have either wrote a new personal essay or an extremely condensed version of the old one. This may have not made the difference, but glancing at my application it may have seemed that I didnt really want to attend the school because I didnt put much effort into my application.
I am moderately upset about being denied. My apoligizing to Tulane for not making myself seem to be the attractive candidate that I actually am is just my way of venting my frustrations. But I am over it now.
