Study Abroad FAQ: How To Deal With A Rejection Letter?
Don’t let anyone bobo you 😁, reading a rejection letter from your dream school can leave you devastated. But, we both know that crying over-spilt milk is pointless and the wisest thing to do is strategize on how to deal with a rejection letter and also your college application plans. Here are a few things you can do;
DON’T BLAME YOURSELF
You were not the only one that applied to the school. The school’s admission team receives an average of a thousand applications from prospective applicants both locally and internationally on a weekly basis. Hence, it is a competition for the best suitable candidates for the school per intake.
Our advice for you is to read through your offer letter carefully to highlight the specific reasons why you were denied admission. Could it be because of your study gap year(s), no proof of career progression, poorly written personal statement, lack of student representation with an agency, or incomplete submission of documents?
This can help you determine what entry requirements were not fulfilled, and brainstorm and do a better application to other schools.
RESEARCH ON OTHER SCHOOLS
As the proverb says; it is best to have your eggs in more than one basket. It won’t be a smart move to spend an average of three months monitoring your application to only one school. The best and wise thing to do is research on other schools that offer the same or similar course for the next closest intake.
It is an operational culture at TGM Education for our student counsellors to send applications to an average range of three to five schools. The counsellor will first send a mail enlisting schools, courses, tuition fee, course modules with other necessary information to the students. You have all the necessary information to decide on what school and intake to apply for.
If you have a refusal letter either from the school or the embassy, we will be happy to take on your application and supervise the whole application process.
Our services are denial letter review, expert counselling on what next to do, supervision and student representation into top-ranked schools in the UK, USA, Ireland, Canada, Australia, Germany, Cyprus and Mauritius.
