And this letter went viral when she posted on her Tumblr account which forced the Duke University to reconsider O’ Dell’s application .
However the Ivy status that these universities want to show , Duke University response went like this
“I understand how disappointed you are that we were unable to offer you a space in our incoming class. I want to be honest with you and let you know that it’s very rare that we learn something that leads us to change our decision. In the last ten years we’ve received about 500 requests for a review…and changed the decision four times.“
Well O’Dell posted on her Instagram account that she has been accepted to the University of South Carolina and that’s the great spirit shown by her.
So the morale of the story is one university rejection means its their bad and it’s not end of the life. Universities do provide quality education which you can get from a huge pool of good universities and at the end we would like to say Apply Wisely .
Apply Wisely is Admission Times motto and Admission Times counselors provide expert advice & personalized attention to each student at every stage of the application process in getting admission into the universities of UK, USA, Canada, France, New Zealand, India, Singapore and many others.
