Who actually reads their rejection letters?
« on: January 27, 2006, 10:06:35 AM »
I've seen some posts here about the best rejection letters and the worst rejection letters, but it just occured to me that I haven't really read any of my rejection letters.  Or if I have, I've merely skimmed and then immediately forgotten. 

Who cares what they say?  It's a form letter anyway, so it really doesn't matter.  Each time I told my father about a rejcetion, he'd say, "What did they say?"  Are you serious dad?  Its a form letter.

As each agonizing word pierces to the depths of my heart and soul... the burn of each word searing my mind...

Yeah right, I get to the word "regret" and then toss it in the back of my law school app folder.

You save the rejection letters? I plan on having a cathartic rejection letter incineration in April/May.  ;D

When I got my first rejection letter (from maryland, not even two weeks after I applied) I put it up on my fridge to try to motivate myself to study for my LSAT retake.  It didn't work - in fact, it just made me want to eat cake frosting straight out of the can.  So I had to take it down for the sake of having my jeans fit...

AH

I wish I could find my UG rejection letters!  I was intent on framing them to put next to my diploma when I did get into a top U.  It worked!

For that reason, I a hoping to do the same with ls rejections.  But as for actually reading them, nope.

I got about a gazillion rejection letters for my first article before I got a yes.  I think they filled my saved mail folder on AOL.  I should have printed them out and taped them above my computer.

BC published it in their IP law review.

It's called Google's Literary Quest in Peril.
