    I received on FRIDAY a rather eloquent letter of rejection from San Antonio. The writer expressed an apporpriate amount of empathy and stressed the decision should not be construed as a personal judgment on my potential as a DENTAL STUDENT.

    I received on SATURDAY an equally fine letter urging my application to the SA school of DENTAL LAB TECHNOLOGY!

    I challenge anyone to post equally obnoxious correspondence from another school.

    Texas Freddy,

    Man, my sympathy is out to you! I rather be rejected flat out than getting those types of letters!! I have to say that I have NEVER heard of any dental schools do that!!! You're my first!! I did however hear medical schools do that, suggesting other programs when they don't get in, but never dental school! Must be a Texas thing! Sorry to hear that, I'll drink one for ya!
    :cool:

    I didn't receive an offer to apply to another program, but I thought the denial letter from UW was less cordial than normal. They indicated to me that based on academic achievement and DAT scores, I was lacking in one or more of these areas and was therefore not worthy of consideration at such as prestigious institution. Guess I'll just go to UConn.
