I didn't get a UPenn interview and so I knew i had been rejected outright. Just for fun I still went ahead and called them to ask what my chances of admission are? <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> . The lady pulled every word in the dictionary in her attempt to avoid the word "REJECTED". I kept asking her to elaborate. I eventually asked "so does this mean I've been rejected?" and she said "yes". We both laughed about the episode. Nice lady, tough job.
