Okay. You may or may not be aware that some med schools reject their applicants using e-mail (Davis and Emory do this.) This got me thinking, it'd be hilarious if they started rejecting people via a text message on your cell phone. Someone posted a story where hundreds of workers got fired from a credit card company in South Korea through a text message. I thought it'd be fun for us to come to a concensus about the following question:

What would be the most inappropriate text message you could receive on your cell phone?

I'll start with a few ideas - (1) marriage proposal or (2) HIV (positive) test result

At the end, we can vote and come to a conclusion of what the worst/most inappropriate text message would be.

you can't give HIV results without pre and post test counselling. At least not in NY, thats the law. So scratch the idea of giving results over a text message.

They could, right after the interview, summon you to the dean of admission's office, B1tch slap you and tell you how worthless you are and then proceed to reject your sorry a$$.

It's gotta be via a text message on your cell phone and I'm sure they wouldn't explain all that in a short message. The only message you could get would be "go to the dean's office" but that wouldn't be all that bad.

I would hate the fact if I paid a secondary fee that I would get an impersonal email....that would burn me.

as for the worst text message ever?

Since I don't own a cell phone, I would be completely unaware if somebody sent me a terrible text message on this nonexistent phone.

However, supposing that I did own a phone, if I got a text message from UMass med saying "Just kidding on that acceptance", I think I'd very quickly be in the market for a new cell phone. The exact time would depend on the distance to the nearest wall.
