How can I find out why a university rejected me?

  • I got rejections from all the universities I applied to for Fall 2020. They all have a standard reply that says "The competition is high."
    How do I ask for specific feedback?

  • Wait until the term starts...
    Universities usually don't share this information because you might help a friend apply for the program in the same term

    Then, email them...tell them you wish to improve and apply again
    I don't guarantee you'll get a reply, harm in asking, right?

  • Sure. You don't lose anything by trying.
    Maybe some time
    But I should warn you
    Mostly, you'll not get a helpful reply
