To what end? Who would want to go after being treated like that?


Get them to change their decision and then withdraw. #winning


:roll: I say, pick your battles. Usually, schools don't reject unless the numbers were a long shot anyway. Anyway...

The original post and video were both awesome!


That may be the case that she didn't have high enough numbers and that it is firstly about the numbers, but it certainly conflicts with what GULC's policy is as stated by Dean Cornblatt in that they didn't even review her entire application:

"In the Office of Admissions, we take great pride in dispelling the myth that the admissions process is strictly a numbers game. Despite our large volume of applications, we understand the importance of reading each and every aspect of each and every application to Georgetown Law. And each year, we are impressed by the diversity of our applicant pool and by the extraordinary class that ends up joining us on campus."

I got a twofer.

UC Hastings:

I don't hate you because you're fat. You're fat because I hate you.

Have fun continuing to be Boalt's bitch!

Sincerely,

Someone who should've just withdrawn because I didn't want to go anyway.


Georgetown:

Why you gotta do me like that, boo? Granted, I didn't make a video, but DAMMIT, you had me fooled. Realistically, did I think I would be accepted? No. But, you lifted my hopes by taking A MONTH AND A HALF to get back to me even though you and I both knew that I wasn't good enough for you.

I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO QUIT YOU, BB.

It's cool. I spent four years of college on your campus, drinking the plentiful Kool-Aid you serve up to undergrads in the hopes of convincing them that they really are just as special as the HYP kids, and I got sick of it. You can take your forced-chill, look-how-happy-we-are schtick and shove it. I'm taking my talents to New Haven.


Excellent.

Dear Stanford,

You are the cold-hearted bastard cowboy boyfriend (cow-boyfriend?) I had in the 10th grade who took his sweet time in flushing our relationship down the shitter, one white-trash hookup at a time. I broke up with him before he could do so to me--am I gonna have to pull a hillbilly half-nelson and deny YOU before you so boldly "DLS" me?

Fuck your admissions process. Fuck "DLSs," "LOCIs," and "SLS." I'm done.

Sincerely,
The girl who ain't got time for you, bitchhhhhhhh.




P.S. You're a fugly slut.

Stanford,

I could have dealed with your BS reject letter but the way you broke my sweet mamas heart was below the belt. I will never forgive you. Your mascot is a stupid tree anyways and I pray for some deforestation. I hope USC kicks your ass next year on the gridiron. Go Trojans!!


P.S. I hope you like my transfer application next year :)

Dear Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Chicago,

I did well enough on your silly test but I damn sure would not change the experiences I've had just to join your overrated ivy league plus group.

It only takes one, and I'm afraid my numbers were just a bit too shiny for some. It's just a matter of time before I'm going to infiltrate your dinner parties, high class balls and whatever the hell else you people do.


So in the mean time, please do go fuck yourself, thanks.



Still love you Stanford, you're just too awesome.

omg the M&M's video. honestly that was full-scholarship material. what in the world.

But now for my grievances

Dear UPenn, UVA, UMich, Cornell, Harvard

You couldn't get over my GPA, I understand. As Quasimodo himself suffered the bigotry of the those around him due to the unchangeable nature of his deformity, so too was I discriminated due to my unchangeable, hideous GPA. I accept that you don't think a B in the engineering specific physics class I took freshman year is worth an A in 'The Simpsons: A Cultural Symposium of 90's Television'. I bravely faced your condemnation, standing as tall as I could, hunch-backed as I am by my GPA. Like Quasimodo, I stared down your hateful practices with dignity and pride, but in the face of the mob you collectively formed in order to beat me down by mass wait list, I admit I fled and cried for Sanctuary. It was then that the king amongst you bullies, Harvard, came down to crush me with untimely rejection.

Unfortunately, even Quasimodo's important function in the community as a bell toller, or my important contributions to the community in underserved NYC public schools or universalizing the organization of fencing competitions in all of NY, NJ, and London, were not enough to save either of us from your cruel hand. Softs, as we know them now, as opposed to whatever name Quasimodo knew them as in the 18th century, apparently don't mean so much to you.

You killed Mufasa.

Dear Boston,


To have your adcom email me two hours after I got your rejection notice to say "We sent a decision. Did you get it? Let me know! :)" was an emotionally confusing event for me. A smiley face!? Not unless you and America and the rest of the emoticon-using world got together to redefine the meaning of a smiley face!!! :evil:

Xoxo RAWR

This is mind-blowing! Did you "let them know" that you received it? This is probably the funniest thing I've read on TLS so far. On the upside you probably don't want to attend a school that uses smiley faces in official emails.

I've been too busy cocking my head like a confused beagle to even figure out what to say. OOH OOH OOH I know! Officially taking suggestions. Bonus points for anything that includes an emoticon that will show up on gmail and great puns.

But seriously, how do you even reply to that!?

Dear Fordham,

Your plummet in the rankings this year is equally was as uncomfortable to watch as that celebrity diving show.

Also, your feet smell.

XOXO RAWR

P.S. You couldn't even send me a letter or an email? I paid (insert number here) dollars to apply to you, and I don't merit a STAMP? SKROO YOO I'M GOING HOME.

Oh, Boston. This is not cute. Not cute at all.

You should say that you got it, and that it was the best news you've received all week. I'm sure they'll be highly confused :wink:

LOL WHAT? Is this serious?

Did you call them or something and ask them why your decision was taking so long?

They had promised me an answer by the 12th, so I emailed on the 16th. On Monday/Tuesday I got the decision notification, and the next day I got the other email.

And giving serious consideration to replying with the "It's the best news I've had all month!" shtick haha.

Dear GW Law,

Thanks for destroying my dreams...Even though a member of your addcomm said that "it would be great to have you in our program" before I even applied..It'll continue to be a love-hate relationship....It's ok boo...I'll retake the LSAT in June and come back stronger and better, and next year you better say yes or else.....I'll just have to settle for #2 choice..

Sincerely,

A disappointed applicant.
