Dear [Title] [Lastname],
We regret to inform you that your application for
graduate study in our department was not
successful. With the high calibre of the
applicants to our program, the task of choosing
graduate students is always a difficult one. We
are able to accept only a small number of
students each year and only those with
interests that closely match those of our faculty
members can be selected.
We thank you for your interest and we wish you
success in your future studies.
[Firstname] [Lastname], PhD
