"Alas, Harvard isn't ready for this jelly."

Ok, there was one (not going to try to find it) that said, after an acceptance, something like,   "I saw a moose today and took it as a good omen. It was."   And then someone afterwards who was re

"Fine! I'll go make my own geophysics department! With blackjack! And hookers!"

tbh the Northwestern rejections strike a really odd tone, because the first paragraph is literally "you are denied entry" and then the second one goes on to be like " this decision is hard to convey because we respect your intellectual ambition and wish you success"

signed, another linguistics rejection lmao

  • Nice letter, but overall pretty disheartening. GPA is MA, excellent recs, years of teaching experience, publications, national conferences. Maybe it's because I haven't been knighted yet, and my martyrdom is still up in the air.

Interesting...there was a similar response posted today under what seems like a different field. Possible troll? Obscure meme?

Duke University English, PhD (F19) Rejected via Website on 29 Jan 2019 A 29 Jan 2019
  • report spam
  • Most of us on Grad Cafe: "I want to get an English PhD at Duke!" Duke University: "LOL NO."

lol sorry not happening

That's me! Haha. Had to introduce a little levity into the English results thread-- 16 Duke rejections in a row posted on there! Knew I probably wasn't getting accepted to Duke anyway, and now I can continue hating their basketball team with zero guilt.

As a Carolina girl (undergrad) and, therefore, diehard Duke hater, recently thrilled to be going back to UNC for a PhD--we will take all the Duke hate we can! Hate with no guilt!

This was one of my favorites from my daily perusal of the clinical psych results:

  • Generic mass email. 2 out of 3 rejections so far, gonna throw myself a failure party if I get a 3rd. You guys are invited. Bring pizza.

Don't worry dude, I'll get some pizza and liquor. You don't need Northwestern anyway.

As I ponder that being my next move, in anticipation of being rejected unanimously--maybe I need to start searching for jobs now. Reverse psychology the situation. That'll do it.

I notice an acceptance in your signature now. Were you looking at jobs when you posted this on the 25th?

Ha, no! ? I wish I could say that was the solution. I was sitting down for a full day of thesis-writing!
