I just received a rejection e-mail, 3 lines, from the associate dean of admissions at RWJ. What a class act school, it was really worth the application fee, you bunch of zeroes.

Poo is still poo no matter how much perfume you spray on it. Just mark it down as a rejection on your spreadsheet or whatever and move on. It's nothing personal.

Hey did you interview there or was this pre-interview?

Some schools are really good at rejecting you, some are horrible at it. Some make you feel as if you are really smart and they know they are making a mistake, some make you feel like you wouldnt even want to go there knowing thats the type of people they are!

My waitlist from Cincinnati made me feel smarter then my acceptance to Wayne State.

Seriously, they should offer a class for whoever writes those letters. Call it "Rejections 101: Writing a good rejection", or something!

I got the RWJ e-mail the other day too. Now, I'm an out-of-stater with mediocre stats, so those elements plus the lack of any communication from RWJ in the past several months kind of clued me into my poor chances there. But this rejection is in e-mail format, but there's a freakin attachment. I'm not sure what many other schools' e-mail interview invites look like, but the attachment definitely gave me a bit of false hope. The e-mail itself says a few lines about the school's decisions, then the attachment is just a worthless sentence or two saying they can't offer me a spot. Why they could not include that in the original e-mail, I have no clue. Perhaps I'm just getting ornery at this point...

:laugh: This is true! When I watched ER last night, Dr. Lewis mentioned something about grant money from RWJ :)

I assume it's normal, I never e-mailed the dean. Who knows...
