Bringing this thread back to life after a 10-year break. Any fresh pointers on how to break up with a School?


My 2 favorites:

To the prospective Business School,

Thank you for your interest in my application. As you know, there were many qualified business schools this year. Unfortunately, I am not able to offer attendance to each school. I was forced with the unfortunate task of choosing one school among many highly qualified schools. I am offering deny feedback sessions to a select number of schools. Please do not call my office with requests for this session. If you are selected, I will be in contact with you. Good luck in all your future endeavors.

Peace suckers!

Well you need to let them down gently. Say something like, "Look, it's not you, really. It's just.......I found another school. Don't get angry, you knew I was looking at other schools, we were never exclusive, even though I may have said you were my one and only in that interview, I actually meant it at the time...I know you'll be fine, there are plenty of other students out there, I know you'll find someone else....We can still be friends right?"

Bumping this up for those in the situation where you will have to reject some schools ;-)

Wow bb, thanks for the bump.
Both topics being discussed ten plus years ago were exciting enough to warrant a start-to-end read through. :-)

I hope to find myself in such a situation someday.

Best,
Gladi

I read through the entire thread and I am itching to write a letter myself. I just hope that I get to.
