First, anything is "possible", so, rather than saying that, "it will not be possible" to admit me, to be perfectly candid, they should rather say something like, "we decline to admit you". If they want to, they could technically admit me, so it is "possible". After, all, the choice is entirely theirs...Secondly, they couldn't have spent THAT much "considerable time" reviewing my application since their application deadline is April 1st and they've only had my application for a month! It just goes to show that they have a definite, hard cut-off, and I just didn't cut the mustard...Lastly, the statement that "many worthy candidates must be denied" is politically-correct nonsense! If you are not accepted, you are, in actuality, not worthy! You did not meet their standards for admission and therefore were not considered worthy of acceptance! At least tell it like it is, people! If you are worthy, you get accepted; if you are unworthy, you get rejected...
this is a thoughtful argument. i didn't take the time to analyze my reject letter yet. maybe i should. and i do wonder, for example, would Harvard send the same reject letter to a 168/3.5 as a 145/2.0?
Verbal, it's been bugging me for a while..."POTSIE", not "POTISE".
Sorry 'bout the ding, verbal, but if it's any consolation, I got the same news today!
