Edge Tip:

Getting a rejection letter from a college can be quite a devastating blow. Learning your first choice college does not want you can be heart wrenching.  Try to ease the blow by turning the tables and writing a “Reject the Rejection” letter. Refer back to it as needed. See sample below and write your own “Reject the Rejection” letter.
