subject line: rejections... August 14, 2015 by Hannah Brencher la Over the course of three years I have applied to fourteen different universities and each time I have gotten rejected. The phrase, “I am sorry to inform you that after thoughtful consideration we cannot offer you admissions for...” has become nothing but my constant companion. I am exhausted of tiring so hard only to be told that although I am an excellent student, I am just not quite good enough for them. Going to university has been my dream since I was little, and what an unreachable dream it has sought out to be. I have given everything of myself, I am tired and incredibly terrified of getting rejected once again. Every no, every closed door that I have encountered has broken me more than anyone knows, it has taken everything out of me to try to repair myself each time and I don’t think I can break any further than I already am. All I have ever wanted is for someone to give me a chance, to let me prove that I am good enough, that I am worth it.
