Comments: I knew this was coming as they implicitly asked me whether i will accept this year or not. I could not make a commitment of course and two days later they announced the fellowship offers. I was not at that list. Still, I was expecting some offer with no funding or assitantship. However, they are completely right! They cannot tie their resources to someone who is unlikley to attend once more. It was a mistake to re-apply to a school that you had rejected and give them a second chance to reject you.

Comment: Well, knew for a few days since someone posted that all offers/waitlists have been sent out. Already had this one as an "out" but I was actually pretty impressed with their letter. Very nicely written!
