martizzle Posted September 22, 2010 Share Posted September 22, 2010 Yesterday, I received this (via email) from a school: September 21, 2010 *********** **** Dear ****: It is with sincere regret that I inform you that your application for admission to Graduate Studies at the University of ****** has not been approved. The program to which you applied received many more applications from individuals than it could accommodate making competition for admission especially keen. Admission decisions at the graduate program level are determined by an admission committee in each program. Your desire to pursue studies at the graduate level is commendable. We suggest that you investigate other graduate programs offered at the University that might match your interests. All of the Graduate programs are listed on the web at http://www.****.edu/****/**** Should you wish to re-apply you must submit a new application with new supporting documents appropriate to your program of interest. Thank you for your consideration of the University of ****** as your partner in education. On behalf of the Faculty, ******** Assistant Provost for Graduate Studies And in my very finite patience for stupidity and people wasting my time/etc, I wisely (and childishly) replied: I really do appreciate your....*prompt* notification of the result of my graduate admission application for the Fall Semester which started about a month ago. Your timing was impeccable; up till today, I still had lingering hope that I would be accepted to University of ****** for the 2010 Fall Semester. Idea for the decade: The University of ****** should be more pro-active about informing all applicants of the results of their applications in a timely fashion. What do you think? This idea too revolutionary for the University of ******? Thank you and have a great day. Result: I got an email first thing in the morning: Apparently the person who I replied forwarded the email to the department (CC'ed me). I don't even know why I sent that email...I just felt that it was really stupid of anyone to actually send a rejection letter a month into the semester for which a student applied. I am definitely not going to said school/applying there for anything. It's a shame because the school is literally about 20minutes from where i did my undergrad...they may start negatively viewing applicants from my school... Anyway, done is done...what possible outcomes could come out of this? how much overboard do you feel I went? (if that was correct english lol) Zouzax, schoolpsych_hopeful and Strangefox 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
