Holiday Messages

Postby bzzingbee » Thu Dec 20, 2012 5:51 pm

...are killing me. Every time I see an email from some sort of admissions personnel I feel the blood rising to my face. I'm just now starting to get acceptances, and so opening new emails I'm almost positive it's an acceptance/denial. BUT NO IT'S JUST A "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" message. -___- Cruelty.

Most of them say either "Seasons' Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" right on them, so I don't get too annoyed. I appreciate the gesture. But I understand where you're coming from.

Schools don't generally send holiday messages to people they've already rejected, right?

I don't think I ever got one from a school where I had been rejected. My point is that if they're still sending you stuff, then you're still, at least theoretically, in the running for a seat in the class. They will stop sending you stuff if you've been rejected. Unless they're McGeorge. Then they will keep sending you invitations to apply years after they've rejected you. Years...

Well that sort of makes me feel better. Now I'm A. Happy I'm not rejected some places and B. Frantically wondering where the rest of my Happy Holiday messages are.

Haha well I just got a happy holiday wishes email from a school that I was rejected to last week. I think it's pretty cruel...why bother, right?!

That's really the only logically appropriate behavior.

On the plus side, you don't have to attend McGeorge.

I've only gotten one from a school I didn't apply to. I think my vigorous unsubscribing is starting to pay off

I received a nice holiday e-mail from Thomas Cooley Law School.

I take it as a bad omen.

When you unsubscribe from an individual school's emails, are you unsubscribing from the CRS? I mean to say, is it all or nothing?


Sadly, no. You gotta commit to unsubscribing or ttt will overwhelm you

I actually got a huge envelope in the mail yesterday from one of the schools and I could see the cover page and It said "WELCOME" I was like, "Yes" It was a freaking solicitation after I applied SOB!
