Mine get really angry and upset when I get a rejection through the post and send me off to do 'work', which doesn't help. Anyone got this problem?

Yup! My mum is still a bit annoyed with my rejection. I got over it now but my mum still hasn't......

My mum actually seemed quite amused when I was rejected from oxford. She sang "she is despised and rejected...of oxford" a la Handel's Messiah.

Thankfully I haven't had to go through this, but both my parents said when I applied, that I had done my best and thats all I can do, so no matter what happens it doesn't matter. They wouldn't be bothered, but I would be!

I never got any rejections, I'm sure my parents would have been sad for me if I'd have got rejected from somewhere I really wanted to go but I doubt they'd ever get angry with me.

My mum's really piss taking, she'll get mad at me if I don't apply to Cambridge, and she'll get mad at me if I don't get in. There's only one choice. Sadly, I got rejected. She just doesn't understand :confused: . She's never happy with me, I can't wait till I get outta this house! :mad:

Haven't had a rejection yet, but I refuse to tell my Mother when I have an offer as she starts getting a little too excited.
If I was rejected she would say that it's all the more incentive to work hard now and prove them wrong.

Well, when I got rejected from Oxford, my parents got enormous thrills from calling me 'Reject Girl' for a few weeks... which turned into 'Oxford Reject' after a while. Comments like 'Well, Oxford don't want you do you are clearly worthless,' come up fairly frequently. It's all tongue in cheek though... we don't do sincere.

When I was rejected from Durham my dad said, 'Well, that's what you get for applying to do English at top unis,' and my mum seemed to take it as a personal affront... 'How can they not want my Rooey?'

My parents shrug... I think my dad forgot I applied to Oxford..

They don't put much emphasis on education anymore

I've got 4 acceptances so far and every time i told my parents they were all simley and congratulatory, but then didn't make a bid deal out of it. Cos they know I really want to go to LSE or UCL and those are the two i'm still waiting for! so maybe after recieving decisions from them two will there be more of a fuss, hahaha, who knows.

That's a bit harsh! They "send you off to do work?" Tell them to get lost or at least show some sympathy! :p:

My parents don't get excited about offers, and they will be secretly thrilled if I get rejected from Durham because "it's too far away."

When i got rejected from Oxford my parents were relieved. The whole ordeal of my school practically forcing me to apply in the first place, followed by the horrendous ordeals I had during my interviews and choral auditions made me really resent having to apply to universities. If I'd have got in I would have gone because I would have felt I should do and ended up dropping out, exactly like the guy at my school who did.

When I got rejected by Oxford my parents were supportive and they reminded me that it is only an other university. I didnt really care though because I didnt want to go to Oxford anyway, I was only applying there just to see if i could get in.

I have not yet told my mum about my latest rejection, cos she'll get angry - not with me, but with the universities. She always has a cause - she just wrote an email to my headteacher (god knows how she got his email) complaining about my teachers. I ask you.
