I was writing my rejection notes, and saved the one from Brown for last. Some of the notes provided were brusque; some were fawning; some were arrogant. And of course, just to deepen the wound, the Student Withdrawal Card from Brown says "If you decide to return this card to Brown and matriculate elsewhere, remember that we would not have admitted you if we did not believe you would thrive here. Any college will be lucky to have you."
I'm rapidly reaching a lower point.
