I am not sure this is prevalent enough In fiction to be tropeable, Please comment.


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.

Examples

Anime and Manga

Live Action TV

  • 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.
