Splitter ding, 2.72/175

This is a relief, because I didn't want to move to Chicago, and if I had gotten in I couldn't say no. (Unlike Northwestern, where I applied because of a fee waiver and a hope to use it as leverage for money.)

Ding dated March 21 - 3.25/169 with a couple connections that turned out to be worthless.  Can't say I'm shocked.

Got my ding too. Maybe I'm getting a little sensitive, but it seemed like a pretty politely worded "go fvck yourself" to me. At least Stanford gives you all that garbage about "its not you, its us."

Hm.

I can't believe an admissions office could write such a poorly worded rejection letter.  It's sad, really.

You mean you read the letter?  I had it torn up within two seconds.

I'm a glutton for punishment.
Also, I'm becoming a bit of a rejection letter connoisseur, so it seemed only fair.
