I want someone to get a rejection letter in a large envelope.  Now that would be something to write about

I got one of those for UG (Penn State) - although technically it was a rejection/invitation to apply to their satellite campuses

You can't be serious! That's just plain mean.

Maybe Harvard scales all the package sizes up, since their acceptances come in a big box.

Wow.  Part of me really wants to laugh, but part of me thinks you're dead serious. :-\

Unfortunately, I'm serious.

I will never forget my Brown UG rejection letter.  I don't remember anything beyond the first line.  It said something like: Unfortunately "YOUR APPLICATION" was not among those selected to be a part of this year's incoming class.  Well, GEE, isn't that so nice of them not to reject ME!  Just my application, nothing to worry about.  So maybe I could send in another one.  Still bitter eight years later.

"We have included a list of Community Colleges in your area, and would be happy to review your transfer application in two years time"

And, indeed, the included a list of all Community Colleges (with phone numbers and adresses) within a 100 mile radius.

That's truly, amazingly, awfully bad.
