Dear Michigan,

I knew I was going to be rejected. You knew I was going to be rejected. So why did you have to keep my application on Complete for six months? Didn't your mother ever teach you not to lead a girl on?

It's okay, no hard feelings. I've had my eye on a guy who is promising to offer warmer weather and he's going to pay for my dinner.

Best regards,
hal20

Dear Michigan,

Why did you not have the decency to at least send me an email to say that I was DINGED? Was I not worthy enough? But if I wasn't, why would you waste money on a postal stamp to send me a certified letter? Right now, you make me feel like a cheap hoe. You serenaded me with your great fee waiver and even told me I had a fantastic chance to be yours forever. Then, like a lot of other women in the world, you spat in my face after a few months and told me goodbye. It's okay, though. Because one day, you will meet you Chris Brown... And he will do bad things to you too.

Never Yours,

I got a rejection letter in the mail as well. You would think 4 years of OOS tuition for UG would at least earn me a pity waitlist.

Hey NoTTTre Dame:

If you're going to send me a ding on pretty letterhead, you could at least make sure your grammar is correct. I don't know if it's YP or if you don't think I'd be a good fit with your "mission," but I'm definitely not a good fit with your (lack of) command of the English language.

I should have donated the $16 report fee to Planned Parenthood instead of LSAC.

Love, me.


PS: UVA, thanks for the waitlist. With my numbers and lack of ties to the mid-Atlantic I expected a ding. I'll put my collar back down now.

My bad, the error I saw was my misreading a really unwieldy and long (but technically correct) sentence. I guess I can still call them out for the punctuation in "It is with regret, that we are not able to extend an offer of admission to you for next fall's entering class."

And before anyone wonders, "the mission of our Law School" is one of the criteria mentioned in the letter on which applications are evaluated.

Boston College: So, let's see: not wanting folks at your LSAT median with a 4.0? No wonder you dropped in rank... Enjoy the slide.

Cornell: Funny thing is, you place graduates above any other school I'm looking at, but STILL probably wouldn't have gone. Ithaca? What, did you throw darts at a map? Thing is, if I wanted to live in the middle of nowhere in spite of the job placement, I'd move to Uganda. I hear a gentleman there is hiring.

Fordham: Jesus guys, I'd gladly accept if you'd just hustle with this wait list thing. People stranded in the south can't really deal with moving to NYC a week before classes begin.

- Yours truly, a first class mind from a second class UG getting dinged at third class law schools. U mad?

WL'd at Baylor. I tried to start writing a legit LOCI, and it very quickly turned into this:

ABC, Director of Admissions and Student Recruitment,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to confirm my genuine interest in Baylor University’s School of Law. While I appreciate the opportunity to be on your institution’s prestigious waitlist, it is a seat in your establishment that I remain truly attracted to. As an inductee in the Cotton Mather’s Young Stars of America (thanks in large part to my conservative Baptist upbringing), I believe I can fill that seat admirably.

While many students are attracted to Baylor Law School solely because of its strong regional academic reputation, my interest is rooted mainly in the booming metropolis of Waco. Although it is common knowledge that Waco smells horribly, I was blessed at birth with a disorder called Anosmia, or the inability to process smells. I believe this “disease” (as my doctors so often say) will in fact allow me to thrive in your institution. After all, if the Bible taught me anything, it taught me that Jesus rarely followed his nose.

In light of this previously undisclosed information, I hope that you will immediately reconsider my application for admission to your full-time program.

Also, please disregard my GPA entirely.

Your hopeful student,

miy

Unfair to Cotton Mather. He was way more intellectual than anything to come out of Baylor.

UVa,

I just want you to know that you and I are going to be totally fine despite the fact that you were my first rejection.
Why, you ask?
Because you cannot both hate and pity the same thing at the same time, silly.
Why do I pity you?
Oh that one is easy!

1. Thomas Jefferson was a pig AND a ginger, with Aspergers. That has to be a lot for you to deal with.
2. Charlottesville. I wonder if they chose to name the really boring character on Sex and the City after you or if that just worked out that way...
3. Orange?

So don't sweat it, brah. We cool.

Dear Berkeley,

Fuck your communist couch.

Sincerely,
A dude that bathes regularly so maybe it wouldn't have worked out but suck it anyway even though I knew I had no chance in hell of getting accepted I just really wanted to be close to wine country

Dear NYU,

I knew going into this relationship that I didn`t stand a chance, and yet you didn`t just reject me right away. You kept me hanging on and hanging on and on and on and then, when for some bizarre reason I had the tiniest bit of hope that we stood a chance, you dumped me. They say New Yorkers shouldn`t be trusted...

Sincerely,
Bitter Ex

Dear Berkeley,

Damn hippies. Fuck 'em all. Both my numbers were at or above your 75th percentile, and yet still no love. Maybe you found out that I voted Republican in the 2010 Midterm elections? Oh well, at least I'll be able to continue my wonderful practice of showering daily.

You are way too funny to go to law school and certainly too intelligent for Baylor. Just saying.
