post up in room?
make an "im a loser" collage??
I say crumple them up into a person shape and burn them in effigy.
You see that, Charlene! Up yours!
send em back, wrigley field style
Write a rejection letter to them instead.
Heh heh, I'm not that creative or ambitious. I just filed mine with the rest of my med school correspondence.
Personally I am waiting until I am the world's greatest surgeon and some news network does a biography style segment on me and I will show them all of the ******ed schools that rejected me. That'll show them.
Q, you get rejection letters? With your scores? Ok, you have no grades, but what is the world coming to?
That way when you get some sweet a$$ acceptances you at least have an address to send them the good news. Plus, I'd even go as far as including their POS rejection with a copy of acceptance letters.
That will show em'!
Yes. Imagine that: there are some people (and med schools) in this world that don't like me.
I have 2 so far. They are displayed proudly in my living room. Sometimes its good to get your ego deflated.
Mine is posted in my office, and I've been getting a pretty good kick out of it. I actually haven't read past the first line yet, but do I need to when the first line is:
"I am writing to share what I believe will be disappointing news."
Death of a thousand papercuts?
No, I've no imagination, I just file them together with my withdrawals files. And a separate pile for pending, one for interviews coming up, and one for acceptances.
Wait-- is that Dartmouth?
I am going to save them and show my kids how hard it is to become a physician. I also want them to realize that although the majority might not find you "good" enough, there might be one out there to believe in you and that is all you need.
mine are on my fridge...right next to my MCAT score sheet
send them back with a counter offer?
i definitely like the wrigley field answer
I'm into archery... sooo.... my rejection letters have been pasted onto a bullseye. My aim has gotten so much better! I've had WAY TOO MUCH PRACTICE
yeah i got a kick out of that first line too. the rest of the letter was so consoling, as if i had suffered the greatest heartbreak. funny thing is i had withdrawn several weeks prior and yeah it was Dart, unless other schools have ripped off their "we are so amazing that it must be horrific for you to learn you have not been offered a place at our amazing institution" letter format.
My friends and I burn them while dancing around them ritualistically...neighbors and the fire department are not amused.
another "occasion" is coming up; RSVP at [email protected]
I'm gonna show them to girls and beg for sympathy sex.
Yeah. I might keep it handy to send Andrew Welch a postcard from Miami next February.
I know, right? It should have also suggested I may want to be seated before continuing.
That's the best use for them I've heard yet! I've got a fat stack of them from last cycle in my drawer.
At Rice, there was a Rejection letter party at the end of the year-- we traded 'em in for beer and pizza.
And yeah, the "we know you MUST be soo disappointed" letters were the best to bring to the party. Especially as I had already decided on a school and wanted another slice of pizza
Make paper airplanes, throw them, and create your own school ranking service based on which goes furthest. I'm pretty sure that how US News got started.
haha, I WAS JUST about to post this!
I'm gonna frame all of them and hang them up around my MD diploma.
Someone wrote a really good "Rejection of a Rejection Letter Letter" and posted it a while ago-- I'll try to find it, but with all the server changes and misadventures it might be gone.
LOL, that Dartmouth rejection was terrible
Please have a seat...
....but not one of ours.
No seat for you!
poop on them
make a little tiny fire out of them and roast marshmallows.
yep, i've also got a nice pile from last year...12 in all, and already 1 this year from the same school
one can send them back saying "you can't reject me! i withdraw my app!"
i also like the idea of sending them back w/ an acceptance letter copy, but i seem to be missing one of those
i am planning on keeping them until i do get an acceptance...i used them for reference this year to see which schools rejected me the fastest (and therefore i did not apply to them again).....seems to have worked so far for a better round of apps
i used to post up my rejection letters next to a paper that said "They think you're a loser, work harder you slacker and prove them wrong" as a motivation.
it's weird.. i made a joke about this one earlier today and came home to find out that I got it too! good thing I was sitting down when I opened it!
Take them to the post office and tell them that the person does not live there anymore. If you know the folks at the post office tell them to stamp a big-- RETURN TO SENDER, ADDRESSEE NO LONGER LIVES HERE-- on them!
I am sure the schools will get a kick out of it and say Hmmm what is going on here???
I like that.
I burned all of mine in a bonfire with friends. Some of my friends also brought their own stuff; letters from ex's, their own rejections, bad grades, ect. A real fun time was had by all. One of my comrades also drew faces of agony on each letter, just to amplify that effect.
back when i was doing undergrad i saved them so that if i got into grad school anywhere where i was rejected as an undergrad I could send them my rejection letter in place of my SIR
not going to end up doing that, i've matured a little. would be funny though, i still have 'em.
