Recently I came across the rejection email Harvard University sends its once hopeful, now more than likely crushed applicants. Yes, you read that first sentence correctly -- Rejection email! I teach my students about using the proper channels for different communications. Someone should teach Harvard about it apparently.
I have an issue with sending an email here instead of sending a letter. In fact, I have several issues with the letter too. Take a look at their original email below. My thoughts/comments are in blue. Then judge for yourself if I am being too hard on Harvard (or is this now the standard when it comes to college applications? Which if it is, that is just a sad state of affairs).
