Boston Red Sox fans can be a vicious bunch when it comes to their team, but I don't think it's fair to write off a whole city worth of people based on what you witnessed at Fenway. And if you were rooting for anyone other than the Red Sox, any nastiness that was directed at you was well deserved... ;)

I know it's not a law school rejection, but Harvard's PhD rejection says "We know you must be disappointed."  Pompous fu*ks!

Georgetown's is pretty obnoxious...very cold and dismissive. Stanford's is much nicer--so G-town can shove it.

UC-Hastings had an a-hole one last year: "We are in the enviable position of having to reject many qualified applicants." This was after I was sent an e-mail acceptance and later told by letter that I had been rejected.

Yeah, I think BC's went along these lines:

"We very much appreciate your applying to BC Law, etc., etc.  We believe that many applicants that are rejected from BC Law go on to successful careers in the law.  We hope that you can be one of them."

They can just eat me...how can they allude that if you don't get accepted to our school, you're probably not going on to have a successful career?  How about 'thanks, good luck' and that's it?  Ugh....

My rejection from Maryland last year went something like this,

Thank you for your interest in Maryland(blah blah blah).  After a careful review of your
application, we believe that you should pursue other interests

Doh!

I think all rejection letters suck. I wish it would just be a piece of paper that says, "NO" and not a page of BS about how they have many qualified applicants and wish you good luck, blah, blah, blah. Like anyone is reading the letter and thinking, "Oh, well I feel much better knowing there were a lot of applicants. They wish me luck; that is REALLY nice." Please.

I'm all for the status checkers with one word decisions:  Accept, Waitlist, Defer, Denied.  We get the point.  And there is nothing worse than the status checkers that say, "a decision has been mailed."  I would much rather know the outcome - good, bad, or ugly.
