"But your building looks like a piece of shit compared to your beautiful business school, an I'm pretty sure you only added the front facade (the one in all the pictures) at a later date when you realized that 70s architecture is about as stately and decent-looking as a ram's scrotum."

(Not really a ding but WL'ed nonetheless)

Dear UVA,

I only applied to your shitty school ED because I thought it was the only shot I had at a T-14 education with my shitty LSAT score. But I'm going to Michigan.

So, 4 years from now, my LSAT score won't mean a thing and your law school will still be just as shitty. You can literally smell the shit in the air from all the nearby farms in the area.

XOXO

(My assessment of just how shitty UVA was happened after I visited while on the WL to try and decide whether I was going to continue to try and woo them. Decided against it)

and yes UMich is definitely > UVA.

UMich was my first choice and I thought I had no chance in hell I'd ever get in with a 164. Clearly, miracles exist.

Dear George WashingTTTon,

Thanks for the surprising auto-reject. Now I don't have to deal with competing with graduates from all the real top law schools. Minnesota accepted me on the same day / they completely control their market

Fuck you,

Dear Columbia,

Much as I was looking forward to paying $2,500 a month for a rat-infested apartment and $17 for a plate of greasy Chinese food, I can honestly say that I'm okay with this outcome. I have no desire to be on food stamps while earning six figures, or to spend three years around gunners convinced that they "was robbed" out of a Harvard JD.

In the words of an old Tin Pan Alley song, I get along without you very well.

P.S. That crown makes me think of Burger King. Every single time.

I'm almost positive that I'm going to get dinged by Cornell today. I hope they at least buy me dinner first.

TWoodWil wrote: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.

Dear GW,

I was accepted at Georgetown over a month ago, but you felt the need to WL me today. Good luck to you and to your class of 2015, who have to compete against my GULC or NYU degree in the job market.

Love,

I'll be straightforward with GW (I didn't apply for law school), back in high school when applying to undergrad, I, along with another classmate applied to GW. I was ranked in the top 6%, she was in the top 2% of our class. Both of our SAT scores were pretty much in the same percentile range as well - 94th to her 98th. I got accepted to GW (at full sticker) while she was denied.

I remember going to a speech and debate competition with her and the rest of the team the day we got word back from GW, and she was visibly upset at her for not getting in and jealous that I got accepted. Being clueless at the time, I asked if she was okay, only to be shoved away saying "Look, she's upset about GW." Raising my voice, I said, "Fuck them, I'm not dropping $200k on college - that's robbery."

Since then, I knew that GW and I would never get along, so when they ding a decent amount of TLSers for law school, say fuck it, you know you're better off without GW.

GW's UG is that difficult to get into? They were just infamous in my high school for being one of the most expensive UGs in the country. (No one thought it was worth sticker then either.)

Yeah I knew I was going to get in, I didn't think they would be that selective either. Regardless, I've held a grudge against them since 2008 and don't really plan on lifting it in the near future.

(not technically rejected, but deferred. Might as well be)

Cornell,

Your most famous alumni is the regional manager of a medium sized paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. His predecessor was an idiot who on innumerable occasions nearly drove his branch into the ground, wasting company time and resources while cultivating a work environment that allowed for dangerous pranks, sexual harassment, and general laziness. Everyone thinks your alumni is worse...much worse. To make matters worse, he isn't even funny.
