I've joined the ranks



Today I joined the ranks of the many wonderful people who have been rejected from a school.

We plenty, we miserable plenty, we band of rejects;

For y’all today that sheds your tears with me

Shall be my peer; be us ne’er so naive,

This day shall gentle our condition;

And the accepted in programs now-a-bed

Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,

And hold their research cheap whiles any speaks

That w‘er rejected with us upon Saint Valentine’s day.


Ha ha. I was rejected by a college on Valentine's Day. It wasn't Valentine's day in the US, but sure as hell was for us international students around the world.
