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.
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....
I didn't appreciate Urbana-Champaign's rejection where they said that if I decide transfer there next year I will get $500 off books.
I didn't find any of those that obnoxious. I have had I think 4 rejections and I barely read them. Who cares about them if they don't want me? I know what I am capable of. If that didn't come through in my app, then some other school will be in the "enviable" postion of having a kick ass student in their 1L class. Keep your heads up kids!
