Dear Northwestern,

Hi. You may remember me from the return address on the obscenely large application fee I sent you when I applied to graduate school.

Yeah. Ring a bell? I thought so. Anyway, here’s the thing. You are sending me e-mails. Lots and lots of emails. And I think that’s kind of COMPLETELY OBNOXIOUS given than you DENIED ME ADMISSION.

Now. I’ve come to terms with it. You were the only school that denied me, and you know what? I’m very happy with my choice and they offered me job and whatever, my mom thinks I’m pretty.

*deep breath*

But it’s very, very hard to be zen about this when I’m getting FREAKING CONSTANT EMAILS FROM YOU.

So please cease and desist before I end up curled in the corner in a fetal position hugging a UWM sweatshirt and mumbling about how no one will ever hire me as academic faculty because when you’re a professor the only thing that can make up for having ovaries? Is a degree from somewhere like Northwestern.

That’s all.

Love,
Kathleen
