I got a rejection letter with "Denied" underlined in blue permanent marker.  It totally felt like, "Since you're not good enough for our school, you obviously can't read.  We just want to make sure you don't think you had a chance in hell of being accepted."

Wow. Are you sure it was underlined in pen and not just blue ink from a printer?
That's pretty harsh...

No, it was totally permanent marker..the name was signed with it and there was a mistake mark on it like the pen slipped.  I thought it was kinda funny.

So...did you say something really offensive in your personal statement?

Oh yeah, it was full of swear words and how I thought their school sucked. ;)  No..but it did look like it had been written by an office assistant or something.  Like how politicians have their named signed on the letter, but the initials of the intern is under it.  Who knows.
