It is post like these that provide endless entertainment that insure I return over and over to this blog, despite rejection.

I'm writing this comment though, because I have a bit of writing that may, or may not, be of interest to you. A short around 500 word essay on what rejection to the Institute meant to me, and how I took it. I wrote it because I thought it might be helpful to other rejected in future. It has some dated material, but nothing that removes its relevance for the future and past accepted, or rejected. If you could get me an email address to which I could send the essay, I would appreciate it, assuming that is that such a bit of writing could be useful to you.

Thank you!

Aww, too bad for you. In that case why don't u leave the job of enlightening prospective students to the real admission officials instead of spilling out your silly thoughts:)
