Why I got rejected


Recommended Posts

Is it appropriate to send an email to the schools from which I got rejected, asking if there was any part of my application which was particularly unappealing? I was a little surprised by some of the results, and I just want to know where I went wrong.

I would highly recommend doing this. During last season's application cycle I contacted my top choice to discuss what had gone wrong and the DGS was extremely helpful in discussing with me the application. As a result of the phone conversation I was also offered admission into the MA program. I assume that this is relatively rare, but you never know. Good luck!

Additionally, you may want to share your info with Grad Cafe people who could offer advice on how you might improve your situation as well.
