    OK I have to vent some more about this because it is ridiculous. I just got my mail (I've been lazy today because I've come down with costochondritis and I feel icky), and I was saddened to see that I got a thin envelope from Rush Medical College. I thought to myself, well they said I was on hold until March... Maybe they rejected me early. I was totally thinking this was going to be a "why on earth did you apply to our school because you SUCK!" letter... until I opened it. Well, on the letter, my last name was spelled wrong. <img src="graemlins/pissy.gif" border="0" alt="[Pissy]" /> This is a common occurrence, but it annoys me every time it happens-- especially since I know my name was spelled correctly on the other correspondence I've received from Rush. It wasn't even the usual misspelling, which is an extra "n," they actually put an strange "ng" combination in my last name. How they came up with that, especially since my name is spelled correctly on the envelope, is beyond me.

    So, I think Rush has become my hated school this year. Last year, it was USC who spelled my name wrong and became my hated school. I mean, I don't hate Rush enough to withdraw my application, but that is really annoying. It makes me want to do the same thing to them, but I can't for the life of me think how to misspell Rush. Grrr.... <img src="graemlins/pissy.gif" border="0" alt="[Pissy]" />

    that is pretty ridiculous. On a rejection I received, my name was trailing off the sticky on the envelope so that only half my name was on it...they don't have nearly the care in corresponding with us as we do with them! they don't deserve our time!
    but I can't tell from your post what the letter actually said!

    You hate schools because they spell your name wrong?

    Okay, I got a thin letter from Rush today, but glory be! Not a rejection, but a "put-on-hold-for-interview"...but I don't hate 'em for it! :D
