My favorite rejection line is in UPENNs letter: "We hope that you understand that this decision does not reflect on your qualifications for admission, but rather on the quality and quantity of our applicant pool." How I read it: "You are not completely dumb, but there are a whole hell of a lot of people smarter than you." fun stuff! I got this idea from my friend last year: I keep a wall of rejection letters. Its good times reading them with your friends.
