yup.

:thumbdown:

i don't think that optional essay was necessary. i've heard plenty of people getting interviews that didn't write it, whereas i spent 3 days on it before getting rejected post-submission.

Got that puppy last week. But you know what? Rejecting me by email might have saved me five bucks. Lord knows they would have charged me more for the secondary had they decided to send out rejections via smail mail.

For all y'all, except jtank (sorry, but you already answered it!), did you write that essay? I've been staring at it for like a week and it scares the poo out of me.

the worst rejection is from USC...they send you an email that tells you to goto a link which takes you to another link which is a pdf file that says youre rejected.

Yessirreee bob, I wrote the essay. It's probably the reason I was rejected - I did a thoroughly crap-tastic job with that essay. :oops:

I DIDN'T write the essay.

I was complete the first week of September and haven't heard from them one way or another....

Damn that is painful! :laugh: bad news is it doesnt get better when you apply for residency although they do tend to be a lot nicer to you!

Ok, so the lesson seems to be "write the essay and make sure it doesn't suck."
If only it was that easy. Thanks to all.
