Princeton Law School’s Rejection Letter

In 1957, Harvey Wax of Ann Arbor, Michigan applied to Princeton Law School and was rejected due to one major error on his application. The rejection letter became a recurring family joke, but now it’s been enshrined in a new book called Other People’s Rejection Letters. The book, edited by Bill Shapiro, is a collection of humorous and sometimes historic rejection letters and would probably make a good gift for someone on your holiday shopping list. Read more about the book at the American Bar Association Journal. Now, without further ado here’s Princeton’s rejection letter to Mr. Wax.
