Rejections, little and big

I am not the girl who will be attending the University of Iowa’s graduate program.

I got two thin letters yesterday, one from Iowa and one from Minnesota. Apparently, they had 740 applicants with 25 spots and 400 applicants with 13 spots, respectively. On the plus side, I’ve now got the autograph of a Pulitzer Prize winning author. On my rejection letter. Jake commented that it would make for an amusing little anecdote when I accept my own Pulitzer prize. As always, my PA knows exactly the right thing to say. Ah well, I’ve still got two applications out there and I have decided that whatever happens, I will try to get into Iowa again next year.

Because this girl will not give up. Nope. Not me.

But I may need a bit more vodka.
