Subject Heading: Regrets

Ok. Not to belabor the point...but the final nail in the coffin of medical school rejection's from Canada arrived last Friday.

I must commend the University of Toronto for having the email subject heading, "Regrets".



No, not the rejection part, but the clear, concise let down. I hadn't even thought of "regrets" for a subject heading as the quickest-band-aid-removal for "what is the email from admissions going to say?"

Sigh. U of T, you complete me.

Well you don't. But your PFO email style does.

They don't F around at UofT...
WTF, tho'? Seriously? Who do they want???
Did you apply in England?
You should. :P

I applied in Ireland but haven't heard yet. They don't send out invites until April/May.

Yeah I was going to apply to England and Australia but I just ran out of time/money in the fall due to the India trip. I figured 15 applications was enough.

Like I wanted to move to the concrete jungle and be in a class of 4 million at U of T. ;)

Yeah, there is nothing like that feeling of dread while you wait for the email to load. (And internet is ALWAYS slow for those sorts of messages).

Don't know if you've seen this, but figured you might appreciate it. The epitome of concise accpetance/rejection letter from a university...

Anon--hahah. Nice. The snail mail equivalent to "congrats" in the subject line.
