I got my first rejection email :(
Not totally surprised, never received an interview, kept checking the status on the liason website.

Hello Congratulations to everyone who was accepted this year!

I was not accepted this year, however I'm quite young- I like to think (I'm 24) and I'm considering applying in another year or two. Obviously Stark does not provide feedback for applications so I was wondering if folks who were accepted wouldn't mind sharing there resume or pieces of there application (essay, references, etc.) with me so that when I do apply in the future I have a better understanding of how to proceed.

I understand if that might be too ... personal/revealing so also I wouldn't mind hopping on a call with anyone willing to discuss- or just someone who has general good advice.

Thanks! Stay Safe!

Is anyone else in here still deciding whether or not to attend? I wanted to talk to someone still working through their decision since the deadline is coming up next week.
