University Of Toledo Geography, Spatially Integrated Social Science, PhD (F19) Accepted via Phone on 6 Mar 2019 A 6 Mar 2019
  • report spam
  • Recieved letter of acceptance. Then recieved a phone call from one of the professors there asking if I would come without funding. After I said no, he proceeds to tell me he read one of my four published articles and literally starts critiquing it and telling me the results dont mean anything and how I am not going to get an assistantship. Totally unprofessional. sh** School, sh** program.

  • Dear Whoever Is in Charge of These Emails: I will accept your rejection once you send it in a font that is not hideous and a color that doesn't hurt my eyes. Seriously, who is in charge of these emails? Comic sans and bright blue?? What???

Tangential, but you got an acceptance! Amazing- congrats, friend!

Thank you.  It is only a Master's program, but I'll take it.  Better than nothing.  But, look at you with your 4 acceptances!

Thank you! Well, guess you were right-- third time IS the charm! Proud of ya!! 

This isn't a rejection, but it's one of my faves and I imagine totally relevant to you right now, so I had to share😁

  • What a waste of 250k. I was going to join on a water polo scholarship. I'm telling my mother about this. You can't deny legacies like this.

 

Love these hilarious college admissions fraud references xD

When your English PhD rejection letter has a typo...

  • I'm not sure if I should feel relieved or even more mediocre for not being in the "less than a quarter" of applicants that were spared the "pleaseure" of reading this gem of a rejection letter

UT's probably stressed because of all the SXSW-goers wanting to move to Austin.

They don't want to come to Dallas, either. Housing prices, and by extension apartment costs, have increased tremendously in recent years. 

Not that I care much anymore, since I'll be moving north of the Mason-Dixon line pretty soon!

UMBC's was the harshest I received. It was phrased something like "The program has recommended you not be accepted" as opposed to the standard "We are unable to offer..." type language, and I'll admit it a stung a bit.

Not sure if I should put this on this thread but read this:

"On behalf of this university's selection commitee we would like to apologize for the rejection email, that email was sent by mistake due to an error in our system and it was intended for another applicant, as of now the committee has not ruled in your application"

So good news for me bad news to the other person, so sorry man
