"We have read your manuscript with boundless delight, and if we were to publish your paper, it would be impossible for us to publish any work of a lower standard. And, as it is unthinkable that in the next thousand years we shall see its equal, we are, to our regret, compelled to return your divine composition and beg you a thousand times to overlook our short sight and timidity."



oh my godddddd. is this actually translated text?

Yeah, it was. After I wrote it I felt better though - I even almost convinced myself that GULC is crap.

Law schools could take a shiny leaf out of the books of some Chinese publications. Look how one of those publications sends rejection letters to writers:

"We have read your manuscript with boundless delight, and if we were to publish your paper, it would be impossible for us to publish any work of a lower standard. And, as it is unthinkable that in the next thousand years we shall see its equal, we are, to our regret, compelled to return your divine composition and beg you a thousand times to overlook our short sight and timidity."


Almost died laughing. GULC, learn.

Oh I like that; shift the blame away from my sub-median numbers and onto the school itself. That I can jive with!

I can't believe that you like decided not to ask me back to pref night. Are you surrrious? I totally kissed up to all of your sisters and wore my nicest pearls.

But she's also a blue-blooded, old guard Virginian whose Mama counted herself among your ranks once upon a time. I guess I understand how she got in.

This sucks! Mostly because I really wanted to date all those beer guzzling frat dudes that go to your formals. F. I guess I'll have to settle for one of my other picks or not go Greek at all. Time to go cry to my mom.

Smooches,

I didn't have the heart to post in this thread all weekend, thanks to you smashing it into a thousand pieces. But now I've recovered and can even congratulate myself on my good fortune. Unlike you, WUSTL honestly does look beyond numbers and they accepted me for who I am. They even want to entice me with scholarship money. Now I might actually go to a school that's aesthetically beautiful and has small class sizes because it's not a shitty diploma mill. You're the toilet bowl of the T14 and a sinking ship, and I'd rather attend a rising star. And I'll be doing it while saving money and not hanging out with legacy pricks and political junkies.

Enjoy scrambling to maintain your T14 reputation for a few more years. Guess which school is going to be rewarded with hefty alumni donations when I'm a Biglaw associate? That's right, it'll be the school that showed faith in me when my chips were down.

You made me cry :(

I don't think I'll ever forget about preference night. One year an active fainted in the room above our preference room during the ceremony, so there was a huge thud on the ceiling in the middle of all the sorority crying and singing. Great times.

Dear Texas,

Thanks for the ding I received in the mail yesterday. I know my numbers weren't up to your standards, but I thought maybe you'd have a little soft spot for graduates from UT-Austin (you know, that school you share your campus with?). But I guess not. It's all for the best because I've lived in Austin for my entire life and it's now overrun with hipsters and yuppies and nothing's really "Keeping Austin Weird" anymore. So thanks for the ding. I was ready to move to a new, more exciting place anyway, and now I don't have any reason not to.

I believe Im about to get my first ding today from BU. Quite a nasty way of dinging too. Acceptances have gotten phone calls, WL have gotten Emails, and I got an Email stating that a decision was rendered snail mail sent out on 2/04/2011. Very transparent yet cruel according to fellow TLS posters. What do you think? Anecdotal accounts welcomed. Thanks.

Yes - sending rejections by snail mail is cruel! I know the schools are trying to be nice, and they probably consider an actual formal letter to be better than just an emal. But I say the sooner you know the bad news, the faster you can deal with it and concentrate on your other options.

i prefer a snail mail alone rather than an anticipatory email. on the other hand, i got a similar email from fiu but i expect an acceptance. the bu cruel part is the obvious pattern of rejection, wl, and acceptance that has become apparent to us posters.

Ah, UVA,

I appreciate the opportunity to be humbled via status checker. Not good enough to be admitted, not bad enough to be denied. I can't even speak the words. Let's just say that I have been hate fisted. Because that's what it feels like.

Your message says that you want to keep in touch. I think I've heard that one before. It's all right. I've been dumped by prettier girls.

:( How jerky of them to tell you that you were getting a letter in the mail, knowing full well that they only mail waitlists and rejections. They could have at least told you in the email. Sorry to hear that.

Penn,

I know wit is in keeping with the theme of this thread, but you hurt my feelings. I was sad. I yelled at my boyfriend when he brought me my favorite beer. I was not nice the entire weekend. I was even mean to my dad! I don't like that you made me a rude bitch. I thought you might be the one...

Love,

It's OK, people have heard of where I went to undergrad, unlike your law school
