Totally (not).

Duke AND Virginia,

What a way to start the week! Your genuine and kind-hearted rejection emails really softened the blow. I thank you for giving me an excuse to drink at 9 in the morning (but really, who needs an excuse). I guess I'll go sulk on one of the glorious San Diego beaches that I live next to in our 90 degree weather. My only regret now is that I didn't just use your application fees to cover my bar tab.

Sincerely,

Does not give a fuck anymore.

This is actually the most hilarious thing I've read all day. Thank you, TLS, for making this Monday amazing :D

Dearest CAL,

Long have I desired to study law at your august institution, though you obviously don't feel the same. I suppose I should thank you though, particularly since I don't want to go to a school where half the faculty, student body and general population die of measles due to not believing in vaccinations. Thanks for nothing.

Sincerely,

Fully Vaccinated

Dear Harvard,

You did me a favor by rejecting me. I didn't tell any friends or family I applied to you because even sending an application your way sounds douchey. Your reputation for douchiness precedes you much more than any of your prestige. I did spread the news of my rejection and my friends, family, and coworkers were all very pleased that I wouldn't be turning into what they imagine the average Harvard Law student to be.
I once thought you and I could accomplish great things, but honestly I'm not actually sure you really help anyone accomplish great things…for every Barack Obama that emerges from your hallowed halls there is also a Tom Cotton, whose greatest contribution to society, thus far, is his uproarious twitter feed.
Even if I look past the awful colors, the terrible Boston weather, the fact that your basketball team is about to get wrecked by UNC this evening (I'm calling a 30 point loss; what do you think, JS?), and the fact that I likely would have been surrounded with the worst kind of strivers this nation has to offer, there's still the fact that there is some kind of brainwashing happening at Harvard that needs to be investigated. The evidence is rampant on the pages of TLS. Dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars on a degree in a rough job market should make an individual feel a little uncertainty, if not outright terror, about their decision, yet your students seem mindlessly sure that their decision was the right call. So, Harvard, thank you for excluding me from whatever kool-aid you pass around at ASW.

See ya never,
OBOB

Dear Northwestern,

Going into this cycle, I thought you would be my only friend. Turns out I was wrong. I'm sorry it wasn't enough for me to fly out and do an in-person interview with a 3L, not even a real admissions officer. I really should have taken a hint when my 8 weeks came and went, then you told me to wait for the ten week mark, just to ignore that as well. There I was, like a contestant on the Bachelor, waiting for you to hand me a beautiful rose. But no, you gave me a stick with thorns. We aren't friends at all. Your heart is as cold as Lake Michigan in the winter. Meanwhile, I'll go play with your colleagues in warmer climates.

I hope you freeze.
<3

PS I also hope you get a paper cut

Dear Georgetown,

Forget you, and your little dog, too.

Sincerely,
Not even a wait list? Really?

And now, back to my pity party with Ben and Jerry and Netflix :cry: :cry: :cry:

Dear Duke University,

Oh how sadistic can you be. You were my top choice before I even took the LSAT. I missed the mark and scored too low. I figured my dream was over.
I decided I shouldn't apply. In December, you teased me. Duke, you sent me a fee waiver and an invitation to apply. How did I misconstrue this as a sincere interest and not just another one of your evil little jokes.

I was ecstatic. I thought "Wow Duke knows I exist!!! Maybe they want me!!!" I applied the next day.

Duke, you flooded my inbox bragging about your programs and clinics. You told me about your environmental law program. You got my hopes up, and I thought you were interested.

In February I came to visit. I flew for 8 hours, and even spent a 4 hour layover in Houston to come see you. You started to break my heart here. You told me my scheduled tour and class visit would be cancelled. Who knew two inches of snow would shut down your entire campus. I laughed at this, since I went to school in Pennsylvania and did not have a snow day in four years. However I was deeply hurt Duke.

You strung me along for way too long. Updating my status checker all the way to UR3. Then you sent my rejection email. Hinting that, it was sent by email in order to facilitate a "timely decision". After four months of review, now you feel like being "timely".

GO FUCK YOURSELF DUKE. I'll take my full ride down the street.

I'm taking my talents to Chapel Hill.

With Disdain,

LVbucknell

P.S. I still hate Christian Laettner, and I always will. You are just like him Duke.

Dear Emory,

I know you didn't officially ding me, just waitlisted. But you know what? Screw you. You know where I was when I got your waitlist notification? I was at Georgetown ASW, listening to a professor talk about the 48 cases he's tried in front of the Supreme Court. I don't need you. I never needed you, I only applied because you gave me a fee waiver and I thought I could use you to negotiate for more $$$ at WUSTL. Maybe you could sense that. I would rather burn in hell than live in Atlanta, but then again, the heat there would make me feel like I was in hell anyway. And considering 50% of grads are employed in Georgia, it even has the permanence of hell.

Love,
Someone who is going to Georgetown and hates you

Dear Georgetown,

I thought we were destined for each other. My numbers were a bit below your medians, but I am a non-traditional, and I applied ED. I was willing to pay sticker to spend my next 3 years under your faculty’s tutelage.

I even flew 11,000 KM to visit you and attend one of your guided tours. I literally did everything I could to express my never-ending love to you. And my reward for all the hours I spent sucking up to you is a straight ding? Not even a WL? You have got to be kidding me.

I’m over you now. I mean, who would ever want to earn their degree from the diploma mill of law schools?

Sincerely,
I’mOverTheLawCenter

Dear Duke,

I was willing to overlook the fact that you have your very own porn star claiming her limelight through the media. ( http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/new ... 423?page=2 ) I was also willing to overlook the fact that Winslow touched the ball before it went out. ( http://www.sbnation.com/college-basketb ... -wisconsin ) You still rejected me. :( On the bright side, at least I know my back won't be in pain as a result of carrying all your baggage. :wink:

Dear NU,

I really never wanted to attend, I was just hoping that as a splitter work experience, you'd throw some money at me. Maybe you could smell Georgetown's perfume on my collar, or maybe I just didn't have what you were looking for, but I guess it was never destined to work out.

Either way, you held my app and never gave me a real decision. I withdrew in April. APRIL. And you confirmed that I withdrew my app that same day. So tell me, NU, why did send me a decision letter yesterday with a waitlist offer? What's that about? Do you just love stringing me a long that much?

I think maybe the problem is you.

Love,

Gray

Dear GW,

I hope you are well. I still crisply remember that thin little envelope that held my rejection from your august halls those many Spring days ago. My numbers were well above your medians and I had plenty of legal W/E - I was baffled. Ultimately, I feel this wasn't a rejection of me, but of yourself. Did you worry you wouldn't be good enough? That you couldn't maintain the relationship? Or were you disheartened that I accidentally sent a personal statement emphatically stating my interest in Georgetown? You know that was an accident and in no way reflected on my feelings towards you.

Either way, I've moved on and I hope you have too; Georgetown and I have been together for 3 years now. We have our ups and downs, and I admit I occasionally steal a jealous glance at UVA or Duke, but like all relationships we keep working to make it better.

I hope you take care of yourself and work on your self esteem issues.

Best,
Zacharus

LMAO - yeah that probably might have been singlehandedly wrecked your chances. gw hates gulc and vice versa. if you get in both, gulc gives huge scholly leverage at gw. this should be natural, since gulc is objectively much better than gw but both schools are notoriously stingy so yeah.

actually i did the same thing. i think on my UCLA app i accidentally wrote/submitted my optional programmatic contribution essay towards USC. I got into both schools but yeah not my sharpest move.

congrats on gulc though

Dear NYU,

You were my first choice. I applied early, and when you said "maybe" I thought there was still hope, but I was wrong, and now it's all over. I was sad, so sad, until I realized the following:
  • That I just got out of paying a king's ransom each month to live in a shoebox.
  • That I will go to a school with an actual campus. And not just any campus, mind you, but one so lovely and fair that it is called "the grounds."
  • That I will be able to breathe actual air, rather than the mix of body odor and entitlement that hangs above New York like a fart cloud around a fat guy after a plate of onion rings.

But no hard feelings, NYU. Good luck to you, and your football team. Oh, you don't have one? That's a shame.

Sincerely UVA's

Taz

Dear Thomas Jefferson,

I don't need to pay sticker to go to law school anyway since your school doesn't offer returning students scholarships im not beat up about not being accepted for my second time since last time was with a full ride anyway. Your career prospects are dim at best anyway
