A recent Harvard chemistry faculty application rejection letter

Looks like folks at Harvard Chemistry and Chemical Biology have not been filling out the form rejection e-mails correctly...

(alternate hypothesis: Vin Diesel has been doing hiring for Harvard Chemistry.)

  1. I had seen this, but honestly, if you get rejected who cares about how the rejection letter looks. Even if they put hearts on it, you're still not getting a job at Harvard. Even places that phone interviewed me didn't bother sending any kind of rejection letter.

  4. "we wish you well in your future endeavors" = "good luck". As I've asked elsewhere, how many "good luck" wishes do you have to trade in to find a job?

  5. I distinctly remember that my grad school rejection letter from there said "We know this comes as a disappointment to you..."

    Not to get all sour grapesy, but isn't that just a bit presumptuous?

    1. Sounds like Harvard can't win. They're either too impersonal, or too presumptuous. Apparently they should work with the psychology department on how to let chemists down as delicately as possible!
