My first ding!!

Yale: thanks for not forcing me to go to New Haven. I've had many friends go to you only to come out with life sucked out of them. Thanks for letting me stay in beautiful California.

UCLA - Eh, I'd rather not get the crap beaten out of me if I get pulled over for speeding or if I get caught jay-walking.

UIB - I know it's only a waitlist, but really? I am only one point below your apparent 164 line, with a very high GPA. I don't care though. "The Hoosiers" is a very overrated movie, and you are a very overrated school. And you are like Notre Dame for athletics. You keep trying to stay relevant, but everyone knows you are done.

I have spent 12 hours in New Haven in my entire life, and during that period there were TWO arsons AND a drive-by. Nuff said.

Dear William and Mary,

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for not sending me any notification that I've been waitlisted or rejected. It's such a pleasure to be held in limbo; luckily, the fine folks on TLS have let me know that you silently waitlist everyone, including those you will later reject. I know I've always appreciated it when, in professional and personal life, I've had individuals/institutions avoid communication.

As a sidenote, your british-loving name leads me to believe you prefer the Queen's English, and therefore your appellation as a "college" suggests "an institution between school and university level."

Cheers.

(If your erudite reply is that I applied late in January and you simply haven't had the time to notify me of acceptance, my apologies; I still would rather avoid hobnobbing with colonials on a campus which, in my undergrad days, was famous for its suicides)

They said:

"Dear RD,

After careful consideration of your file, unfortunately, the Committee on Admissions is unable to approve your application for admission to the Law Center for the Fall of 2010.

Last year, we received almost 12,000 applications for the 575 places available in our first year class, and each year the quality of our applicant pool continues to increase. Consequently, the Committee must make the difficult decision of turning down many well-qualified candidates who have the potential for success in a law program.

We appreciate your interest in Georgetown and wish you success in attaining your academic goals.

Sincerely,

Andrew P. Cornblatt"

I fixed here:

Dear RD,

After a quick, hasty and non-holistic glance of your file, fortunately, the Committee on Admissions is able to send a quick email to ding you as it's both efficient and we're lazy. Thanks for the app money which will go towards the Law Center for the Fall of 2010 and/or our collaborators pockets for martinis.

Last year, we received almost 12,000 applications for the 575 places available in our first year class, and each year the quantity of our applicant pool continues to increase. We design it that way because it's good money. Consequently, the Committee must make the inconsequential decision of turning down most of the well-qualified candidates who will recieve a better legal education elsewhere. We're sort of a TTT diploma mill. HTH.

Thanks for your app money to GeorgeTTTown, you're one lucky SOB that we ding-emailed you.

Cheers,

Andrew P. Cornblatt

hahaha good one. At least you didn't get one of those incredibly thin, and I mean THIN little envelops with your name spelled in auto-print on the front. Damn! Why are those envelops so goddamn thin...I don't see even regular mail with one page letters that thin. Depressing.

NESL....THANK YOU again!

What the UVA ding email really means:

Mr. TWoodWil,

We have carefully reviewed your application for admission, or at least as carefully as five minutes while eating a sandwich allows. I regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you a place in the entering class, but we were able to take your application fees. I'm going to use your fee for a new keyboard.

Last year we received 7,102 nonresident applications and 778 resident applications (7,880 total) for the 360 seats in the entering class. This year's application volume is poised to increase by at least 10 percent. There is no question in my mind that this will be the most difficult year on record in which to gain admission to Virginia Law. I know this has no bearing on you at all, just thought you'd like to know that there's a lot of other idiots like you that we reject each year.

I hope you excuse the informality of this communication, but I thought you might appreciate speed over formality. In addition, we are communicating almost exclusively via email now in an attempt to reduce our reliance on paper; though it's mostly so we do not have to waste precious cents mailing rejection letters to philistines like you.

I sincerely appreciate your interest in Virginia Law and for padding our rejection rate. I wish you the very best in your legal education and professional career, but neither Virginia Law nor I wish to be a part of either aspect of your life.

Duke's been stringing me along since mid October until the e-mail instaDing today. Thanks for nothing Duke . . . I've been waitlisted at better schools than you.

I know it is only a second tier law school but...here I go. Me personally I am an adrenaline junky. That is why I am disappointed over the fact that I got dinged at the University of Houston. I wanted to experience the life or death thrill of the commute to school not once, but twice a day. I also wouldn't have had to worry about staying in shape either, because everyday I would be busy sprinting to areas of cover to avoid being shot at. Finally there is the architecture. The campus is so "unique" it looks as if I drove my DeLorean 88MPH and and it took me to post WWII Stalingrad. U of H if you were free I'd still feel ripped off. :D

Illinois -- Even if I had a 167 LSAT do you really think I would waste away in Champagne for three years? The University of Illinois is so memorable that the only reason I remembered I applied was because of Pless' rejection email.

Have fun being the 5th best law school in your market.

Ding: Tulane 2009 cycle

Timeline: Application Received 11/21, Application Complete 11/24, Application Under Review 4/19, Waitlisted 4/20 = F you gator.

How bout this for animosity, if I'm gonna attend a school that gets hit by hurricanes I'm gonna at least attend one where the city doesn't get wiped off the map.

Can't believe I studied abroad in France to try and impress a school (not my whole motive for going abroad, but the thought did occur to me) that is located in a state using Napoleonic Code. I got somthing for ya Tulane, Nique ta mere!

A part of me can't wait to get my February Score back just so I can come here and burn some school up.. figuratively of course... See I got a 155 in Dec and an LSAC fee waiver, so every school that accepted the Feb score gets an App from me.. that means you Penn, you watch your back, when I get that sub-160 back youre going down... you too chicago, youll soon be in the third city....
