I got a letter today from "East TN State University" telling me they could not offer me an interview spot.

Trouble is, I never applyed to the school, not even on AMCAS. I can prove it too.

Case Western has serious issues.

November: Recieve interview for CCCLM. They suggest I schedule with Case as well. I call Case. Both MSTP and MD offices have lost my application. Strange, my check cleared.

They rush me through the file-checking process.

Pseudo-rejection #1: Hold for interview pool. Approx 5days before I interview at CCCLM. Cost of plane ticket has now increased 2x.

Rejection #2: MSTP has many qualified applicants, blah, blah.

Rejection #3: MD has many qualified applicants, blah, blah. Funny, I didn't check the MD-only box. Hooray. Just got rejected from a school I did not apply to.

Rejection #4: MSTP...more qualified applicants than spaces...suggest you apply for a PhD. Fortunately, at this point it was actually funny.

Amazing. As if we didn't get it the first time?

That is both awesome and hilarious. :laugh: You should totally write to the dean and tell them that you can't accept a rejection from a school you didn't apply to but that you would be willing to accomodate an interview if they would be so inclined.

Or even better, maybe you should formally appeal their decision...

This reminds me, have any of you just written, "Did not order. Return to Sender" on what is obviously a rejection letter?

If you're going to get rejected, at least have a little fun with it, I guess.

That is the coolest thing I ever heard.

I have a question to everyone, did anyone get ACCEPTED to a school that you did not apply to? That would be really wicked

Similar thing happened to me and it ended up it was because my premed committee sent my LOR to a school that I did not submit my AMCAS to.

I didn't get accepted to a med school, but when I applied for Cornell undergrad and after I got accepted, I got e-mails and letters saying that I had applied for Cornell med school and that my application was being reviewed. I sent them e-mails saying that I was a high school senior (at that time) and that I never applied to their med school, but that didn't help.
