Law School Discussion

what do you do with your rejection letters?

what do you do with your rejection letters?
« on: March 22, 2005, 10:15:34 AM »
in an effort to find a bit of humor in the hellish process that is law school admissions (and since it is the season for rejections to come spewing out of law school admissions offices across the country), i was wondering how people handle the dreaded rejection letter.

myself: i read over the letter a few times, letting it all sink in (noting the B.S. which pervades these letters, sentiments such as "we regret to inform you" and "good luck with your future endeavors" [when they really mean "why the hell did you apply and waist our time? we are glad to be rejecting you"]) and having done this, i proceed to tear the letter to bits and toss it in the trash.  it's actually rather cathartic...  ;D

anyone have any other methods/rituals?

actually somebody other than myself ironically read my two rejectiosn before I did and I had them just throw them out.. I never got to see them, but Im assuming I didnt miss much..

unless, of course, there was a blurb at the end saying "HA HA WE GOT YOU!!!... WELCOME TO THE CLUB"

I actually have my roommate throw out the really thin ones and ask him where they are from.  He kindly reads them, to make sure it is a rejection then he proceeds to curse at it and then tear it pieces.  I rarely see the actual rejection.

I actually framed mine and put it up on my wall -- no sh*t.  It's been there for two years, since I started law school.  Every day it stares me in the face.  For me there are no better motivators than the memories of past rejections and failures.  If everybody loves you, you just get lazy.

I never saw my BC rejection.  It was sent to my parents' house, and I told my dad to just get rid of it.  It wasn't worth the stamp for him to forward it to me.

When I get my Duke and UVA rejections, I'll probably just toss them out.

If I had applied to Yale, I'd probably frame that rejection. :)
