I got rejected by 10 of the 11 UG schools I applied to, and the one I was accepted at I actually got waitlisted at first  :P

The most obnoxious letter was definitely from UNC,

"Dear Applicant,

Some people just aren't good enough"


Did they really say that? In those words, and just that?

They said,

"Many applicants have sent us their applications this year, and some applications yours included simply do not measure up to the standards of the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill at the current time..."

Ouch. 

On the bright side, they probably send the same letter to protective yield rejects: "What do you mean my 3.95/175 does not measure up to your standards?"

It was for UG, does UG do yield protection?

WTF, did they actually send that letter?

I thought that was a joke.

That is seriously screwed up, and worthy of a nasty reply.



Yes they did!

Ironically, the school I had zero chance at (Penn) sent the nicest letter.

I have all my rejection letters around - I read them every semester for motivation ;)

God bless.  I would just get depressed that I didn't go six for six.

six for six acceptances or rejections?

Similar thing happened to me. Out of the 6 schools I applied to, I only got straight-up rejected by one, and it was my safety. It was also the first letter I got, so I was freaking out thinking every other school would follow suit. Ended up with several offers, including a full ride at a better ranked school. If it wasn't yield protection, then what?

I got the sweet rejection letter from my safety school when I applied last year.

They said "Your application for admission has been rejected."  There were two other lines and that was it.

At least they were honest and concise, instead of telling you how qualified you are and how your achievements are impressive (but obviously not quite enough).

Princeton's UG acceptance letter starts with "YES!!" in bold and all caps, centered at the top, so I've always wondered whether they begin their rejection letter in some comparable fashion ("Sorry!"? "NO."?)

speaking of rejection letters, i thought they were all generic?
has anyone ever heard of a law school sending a personalized rejection letter?
im just curious..

I just got a personalized rejection letter from Michigan. Surely Dean Zearfoss doesn't regret rejecting EVERY rejection from there... lol
