    Two rejections in one day.

    And I found out by AADSAS.

    Does anyone else agree that that's the worst way to find out?

    I received an acceptance letter from Pittsburgh back in December and then responded by withdrawing my spot. A couple days ago I received a rejection letter saying they've denied my application. :laugh:

    I'm so tempted to write back and say that I rejected you first, but then I remember I'm not in junior high anymore.

    I withdrew from Pitt pre-interview, and a month later I receive a rejection later from them.

    I too want to write back.

    I've gotten a few rejection E-Mails from schools, which really sucks.. They dont even consider you worth the piece of paper.. I had to print out my own copy of the rejection letter so I have something to crumple up and throw in the trash.......

    I'd have to say that out of all the rejection letters, UPenn was the most sincere (as much as a rejection can get...).

    I called them and said I wasn't coming. Then may AADSAS said "Offer Rescinded by School." Uh...the other way around!

    Dealing with Pittsburgh during the admissions process always gave me a headache, so I wasn't surprised.

    It sounds like Pittsburgh does not take rejection well. I guess they want to be able to say that only applicants who rated Pitt as their top school were accepted.

    Ya, the UPenn rejection letter is by far the nicest, didn't make me feel so bad when I got it :)

    Same here, I got on the alternative list for OSHU. Once I was made an offer to UNLV, I withdrew my application from OSHU. I got a letter from them yesterday saying that they received 1100 applicants I wasn't completive enough. I feel like writing them a letter saying, that I got accepted from an applicant pool of nearly 3000. I know I am not in junior high, but come on. I formally withdrew my application a month ago and they reject me? That's not very nice nor is it professional.

    actually, i think that getting a rejection via aadsas or email is way more tolerable than a letter in a handsome envelope. think of it this way: you are checking your mail daily in the hope of finding that big envelope but then all you find is that small impersonal rejection envelope instead!!! sucks big time!!! i'd rather not find anything in the mail and get rejected via e-mail. e-mail rejections are not a let-down because you dont expect e-mail acceptances. but paper mail rejections are let-downs because you expect an acceptance in a big envelope.

    Yeah...a rejection stinks no matter what medium is used. But think of all the paper that is saved from not sending letter rejections...bring on the emails!

    i got rejected from my ex gf last week for dinner. prior to her cancellation, we had a heated conversation in which she said i will never make it in life as a dentist. i told her she would never get into med school. to which she responded "im going to law school dumb***."

    i think i know why she canceled for dinner. :laugh:

    You know whats worse then getting rejected, not getting rejeted at all. Just sitting in limbo. My "safety" school sent me one letter telling me to hold on that they had tons of applications to sift through they would contact me. Dec 1rst came and went they sent out more interviews and I got no word. Once accepted the first thing I did was withdraw. It felt great. Seriously I would rather know, then not. Good or bad.

    I got the "Withdraw from a school and then get a rejection notice a month later" from Nova and UNLV.

    No big deal, they probably just put all the people who aren't going to thier school in the same database, and then send out letters to them

    I have to agree, this was the funniest post I have seen in a long time. I can picture it, :laugh:

    Luckily, UF and Nova printed their rejection letters for me.

    [I think way back in like Nov. there was a thread titled, "Write your own rejection letter"]

    i got a rejection letter from west virginia, and the wentch that stamped it...rather than pressing down and pulling the stamp off just smeared it accross the page. I am cool with not being important enough for a signature, i will take the stamp...but give me the half a second for a propper stamping...or at least give me a damn reprint when you screw up!! Don't worry they cashed my check (i took the time to sign it)
