When Duke University sent a rejection letter to a 17-year-old student in North Carolina she wrote back, “After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me admission into the Fall 2015 freshman class at Duke.”
She wrote, “Despite Duke’s outstanding success in rejecting previous applicants, you simply did not meet my qualifications. Therefore, I will be attending Duke University’s 2015 freshmen class. I look forward to seeing you then.”
She said getting the letter made her realize how much power colleges have over students. “Seniors labor over applications, stress over waiting, and sometimes cry over the answer. Then that’s it. The college has all the power.”
She added, “But what if that wasn’t it? What if we got to treat the college like they treated us? I wanted to give them a taste of their own medicine.”
Since posting a copy of the letter to her Tumblr account, the image has gone viral.
