    There are a good few number of schools that I haven't heard nothing from (no interview offer nor rejection)-I'm getting the urge to unleash my own "rejection" letter before they unleash one on me. Who would be the first school you would slap with a "rejection". Mine would be Temple because it was one of my very first secondaries and I haven't heard anything from them while I heavrd that some temple applicants have recieved interview offers pre-secondary.

    I would like to hand Tulane the big "R". Those jerks kept my app on hold for about 4 months and failed to notify me what was going on. At least Penn State had the decency to write me a letter.

    About a week away from sending one to Big H over on the East Coast :)

    Then I sent off Dartmouth the other day along with SLU

    I would like to send a rejection letter to anyone who rejects me! I would tell them that I regret the fact that I can not accept their well-written rejection at this time and that I sincerely wish them luck in their future endeavors. Unfortunately, I doubt it would work to my advantage and I have a feeling that I will be seeing several rejection letters in my lonely little mailbox soon. :(

    Medical123, that must be one of the greatest suggestions I've heard.

    "Dear School of Medicine,

    Due to the large volume of schools I applied to this year, and the highly competitive nature of picking a medical school, I am sorry to indicate that you will be unable to have me grace your classrooms for the next four years."

    I'd send a rejection letter to Vanderbilt, for sending me a secondary that they didn't even bother to READ before rejecting me. :oops:

    Or how about Mayo, who makes you pay the secondary fee before they send you a secondary app (and probably after determining your rejection).

    I've fished this out from one of my previous posts. Modify at will:


    [School Name and Address]

    Dear [Name]:

    I would like to thank you for your interest in my application to [School Name]. After carefully reviewing your school, however, it is with deep regret that I must inform you that I have determined that it will not be possible to accept a place in your 2002 entering class.

    I evaluate comparatively every school's credentials, including your students' average MCAT scores and GPA, curriculum, faculty/student ratio, reputation by residency directors, NIH research grants, national board scores, match list, and tuition fees.

    As you are well aware, I have received far more interviews and acceptances than I can possibly accept. This decision should not be construed as an indication that I do not consider you qualified to teach medicine. It is the unfortunate result of the strong competition among the many medical schools such as yourself.

    Thank you for your interest in my application. I wish you well and hope you will be successful in obtaining acceptances from many qualified applicants.


    [Your Name]

    If you want to go through the trouble, photocopy your signature on the page. But whatever you do, don't sign it directly. You may also want to misspell some words here and there.

    I wonder what would happen if you actually sent this letter. I think that it would be hilarious.

    nice letter. i guess if someone is really upset at a school they can always send such a letter and sign it with a fake name or something. that'll spike them up.

    I think that Boston Univ. needs to be rejected, I met someone at one of my interviews who recieved a letter of rejection from the BUSINESS school! I was already annoyed with how expensive their secondary was, but this totally pissed me off.
