15. Not Accepted to a University


A: What's wrong? You look sad.

B: I was rejected from my dream school.

A: I'm sorry to hear that.

B: I feel so stupid. What's wrong with me?

A: Nothing. If your dream school doesn't want you, then that's their loss.

B: I don't know what to do anymore.

A: Look, that school didn't accept you, because you weren't the right fit.

B: Is that supposed to make me feel better?

A: I'm just saying, why would you want to go to a school that doesn't fit you?

B: When you say it like that, I understand you.

A: Yeah! Just focus on the schools that do want you.

B: You're right! Yale made a mistake rejecting me.
