        1. How to Respond to a Rejection Letter

          Ever wish you had a clever way to answer all those rejection letters? Here's how one graduate applicant chose to respond:

          Graduate Admissions Committee
          Department of Psychology
          Big Deal University
          Collegeville, USA

          Dear Committee Members:

          Thanks for your letter of March 30. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your rejection at this time.

          This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of schools, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

          Despite your outstanding record and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my current career needs. Consequently, I will begin taking classes as a graduate student in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.

          Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

          Sincerely Yours,
          [Name Withheld]

          (Adapted from a letter appearing in the PsycGrad Project.)
