Why do rejections sting so much even after you've gotten into better schools? Why do rejections put me in a bad mood even when it's a school I didn't really want to go to in the first place?

I'm a special snowflake. Everyone should love me. :lol: :evil:

Dear UGA,

I have been a loyal and faithful Bulldog. I went to the games, I bought your expensive UGA apparel, and I donated countless hours to your organizations. I'll remember this next year when you call for donations while I'm at Emory.

Fuck Georgia.

Oh Penn,

Where do I begin? That your mission statement is full of Shit? That you are in the most American city in the US and don't like Americans? But I digress.

Honestly, the fact that most of your students pass the New York or DC bar speaks volumes about what going to Penn is really all about:

Getting the fuck out of Philly.

Thanks for saving me many, many headaches. Obviously, you are secretly looking for something that you wouldn't dare put on paper.

XOXO

Dear University of Arizona (40) and Washington and Lee (43 (really, you fell almost 20 placements in one year?!)),

Thanks for the waitlists. I really appreciate it. I may be around your 50% LSAT and your 100% GPA, but that's okay. I don't need you. After four acceptances into top 25 law schools with nearly 50% scholarships, I'm beginning to question why I even applied to you guys. I assure you, I'll be waiting anxiously at my mailbox awaiting your final decision. :roll:

It's not me, it's you.

Love,
LawGirl7

In fact, we didn't really care enough to try that hard. If we had sent version 4B from our personal statement library we definitely would have gotten in but who cares, I don't even care.

I'll start: Berkeley. Ding date: 01/14/10

Umm, I don't want to listen to global warming propaganda for three years anyway. I eat red meat. Back off peta, your toyota prius is burning dead animals too. Earthquakes. Too liberal. Volatile economy. Hippies. Whatever.


THIS. +1. Berkeley. Ding Date 2-9-15. I am very glad I don't have to spend so much time in a city I really don't like. All your reasons. conservative, and I hate the smell of pot.

Berkeley,

You have the same weather all year around, so you wear shorts, a hoodie, and ugg boots in January as well as July. It's bad fashion to begin with so I am glad I won't have to see it 24/7. The LS building is basically RIGHT ON A MAJOR FAULTLINE (along with a large # of frathouses) that is due for a 6.0+ earthquake any time now (27% of a 6.7 magnitude or higher earthquake happening between 2003 and 2032 on the Hayward fault, which jumps to 62% for the whole bay area). Also tuition hikes, statewide droughts, and a massive student protest every semester... I'm not missing out on much...

Edit for earthquakey exactness :)

Suck my holistic pending license Berkley. Oh, I also have a job offer from big law lined up for my graduation date, let's see how many of your left-wing hatchlings my firm is gonna hire after that.

Berkeley, I was not offended for the same reasons as these other scorned applicants. Au contraire, I actually liked some of those things about you. However, I found your "Personal Statement Advice from a Past Faculty Admissions Committee Member" (http://www.law.berkeley.edu/5188.htm) to be overly sassy and rather condescending. Other admissions offices offered tips for writing an effective PS without being patronizing; we're all grown-ups here. And that, Berkeley, is why you got my standard, two-page PS, "dramatic, unexplained" introductory sentence intact. I wasn't coached, and I don't need your sass, now or in the fall.

^ Not a very good one ... Just wanted to revive this thread.

Except our class hasn't contributed much to this; hopefully bumping this golden gem helps motivate some people to pour out their sorrows.

From looking at this thread, you would think that Berkeley is literally the only school that has rejected anyone from c/o 2018. I know we can do better. Come on, guys.

You know I want the thread to continue to be great, but I'm also happy if no one gets rejected at any school they apply to - an overzealous goal.

But hating on Berkeley is so fun....

Dear Berkeley,

The first time you waitlisted me (4th quartile, ouch), I thought we just needed more time to get to know each other. Maybe if I flashed a little more public interest work experience, really dove into that "non-dramatized" 4-page personal statement, you would see that I'm so much more than a pretty face and an LSAT above your 75th.

But then you waitlisted me, again. And I realized that it’s not me, Berkeley. It’s you. It’s you, with your drought-scorched wasteland of aging white hippies, your cost of living on par with NYC but absolutely nothing to show for it. Oh, another mediocre bar flooded with ugly tennis shoe and hoodie-wearing undergrads? Thanks, but I'll pass. You’re not as edgy as Oakland, not as cool as SF, and for a $4.50 latte I really expect better coffee art.

Berkeley, I'm sorry to break it to you, but you are the hipster douche of law schools, the white vegan Marxist with dreadlocks whose rapacious and self-righteous quinoa and almond milk consumption is starving Bolivian farmers and destroying California's wild salmon populations. You claim to be chock full of liberal social justice-y treehuggers, but in reality you have one black friend and those hippies you love so much still get their lawns manicured by the same underpaid migrant workers you purport to help in your clinics.

No thanks, Berkeley. I'll be sitting this one out.

xo,
Dipper

I didn't apply to Berkeley, but I thought I would contribute:

Dear Berkeley,

Why didn’t you give me a fee waiver? Do you discriminate again poor people? I was going to apply (I really was), but your four page PS? Why do you torture us? But more importantly, why do you torture yourselves?

Love,
xoxo,
LRU
