Rejected

Today, I recieved from the University of Washington, the little letter, dated the 14th of July, 2004. It read:

Dear Mr. McElroy:

Thank you for applying to the University of Washington. We have reviewed your application and regret that we are unableto offer you admission for autumn quarter 2004. Due to limited space, admission for autumn quarter was extremely competitive.

If you decide to reapply for a later quarter, you will need to sumbit a new application application fee, and personal statement. We will keep for one year the academic credentialsthat are currently in your application file. However, you must include updated transcripts with your new application if you compelted additional course work at any time after these records were submitted.

We appreciate your interest in the University of Washington and wish you every success in pursuing your baccalaureate education.

Sincerely,

(signed by Xerox)
Philip Ballinger, Ph.D.
Director of Admissions

TA: Aut 04

    Sorry man, I know you were really hoping for this and I am sorry it didn’t work out. Well, suck it up, eat a few hot fudge sundays and figure out what to do next. You are a really talented person and I am sure you will find others that recognize it.
