I know some of you are going to read this question and think I'm the biggest idiot in the world but I'm willing to take that chance. I come from a long line of working class people. No one in my family has ever gone to college (a few vocational/trade schools, yes, but no fancy-pants colleges or universities).
My daughter graduated from high school this month and has applied to a couple of different universities near here. We had to send her transcripts after graduation (which was June 1st) so not having yet received any acceptance letters is not that unusual (from what I've been told by other parents).
My question is - I know they will send out an acceptance letter if she gets in but do they also send a rejection letter if she doesn't? On TV and in the movies, they show people getting "sorry we can't accept you at this time" letters but I didn't know if colleges actually do this or if it was just for dramatic effect.
So, what say you, AMA? Will she get a letter either way?
