"We have decided that we cannot offer you admission at this time and are placing you on our waiting list."

"Heteronormative."

"ITE"

"less" when it should be "fewer"

"over-saturated"

"prestigious"

"moist"

FWIW, I think that especially in this ITE, in order to get into the ideal school, we need to focus on our unique attributes and how they can bring diversity to the student body, not just the prestige of said school; at the same time, we need to be reasonable about our expectations and must juxtapose the financial incentives of going to a higher-ranked school at sticker or attending a TTT on scholarship, and it's also totes a good idea to see what your hubby/wifee thinks about all this, especially if wifee is preggers.

I know what they say about Wikipedia... but still...

"Punxsutawney Phil lore

Punxsutawney Phil fans say that there is only one Phil (all the other groundhog weathermen are imposters), and that he has made weather prognostications for over 120 years as of 2010. They say that every summer, Phil is fed a sip of the mysterious Groundhog Punch, which magically lengthens his life for seven years. This is done by Inner Circle members.[3] According to the Groundhog Club, Phil, after making the prediction, speaks to the Club President in "Groundhogese", which only the Inner Circle appear to understand, and then his prediction is translated for the entire world.

Data shows, however, groundhogs (widely known as woodchucks) have a maximum lifespan of 10 years in captivity or 6 years in the wild.[4] Thus it is certain that Phil has been replaced many times. The actual method whereby the Inner Circle makes the "prediction" is unknown."

"decision letter" instead of "acceptance letter/package" or "rejection letter"
