From UMass Lowell, Physics:

"Upon inquiry and after an interview-- unofficially "waitlisted"... I expect a swift and absolute rejection will follow this great dishonor and shame my family. I must have shown more than ten percent of my true power this time, and startled them... Senpai, forgive meeee! ((performs hara-kiri))"

That application scored a 7.0 on the writing section of the GRE, too. That's just bad luck.

There's also a follow-up post, asking for their planet of interest!

Holy shit.  I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume the reason is their GPA.  I'm pretty sure I have an idea of what they were doing instead of studying...

Aw man, I feel this

Ha, that was me.  You gotta laugh the rejections off, right?  Gotta say though, if Cornell shoots me down too I'll be all out of jokes.

At least this person is handling their rejection with a sense of humor. Too real.

  • Nothing like waking up to a rejection from your dream school right before getting your wisdom teeth out. Bring me all the PaAAaiiiNnN.

 

Whoever did this I would like you to know I was shaking from opening my own UCLA rejection (that's how my body is coping with this, apparently, no tears but lots of shaking ?) and I saw this and burst into guffaws. Had to tell my mom I got another rejection so I could explain what was funny but the laugh was worth it.

  • GPA is from MA. Next in the seminal series of coping with rejection: cry in the shower, gain 5 pounds, have an icecream tummy, talk to oneself in the mirror, and then go back into the dark abyss of applying again.
