Needs More Examples, Needs a Longer Description. I am open to ideas.In high school, college is one of the greater worries of seniors. For many, higher education is the last step in becoming a mature adult. So applications are sent out. and then the waiting begins. When the time comes, the college will send a written notice to the applicant. And then there will be only two outcomes: He is either accepted, or rejected. An acceptance letter will be filled to the brim with information for the future student, while an rejection will only state the fact.
ExamplesAnime and Manga
- In Azumanga Daioh, when Osaka the CloudCuckoolander got a thinenvelope, she kept wondering whether or not she was accepted, while her friends around her had a silent Oh Crap! reaction.
- Subverted in Veronica Mars when she gets a letter from Stanford. Before Veronica opens it, she says "This is pretty thin for an acceptance letter" before actually reading it and finding out she received conditional acceptance.
