You have been selected, as indicated above, to receive honorary award recognition by having your biography published in the 28th Annual Edition of The National Dean’s List, 2004/2205. … The National Dean’s List is the largest, most prestigious publication in the country recognizing gifted students selected by their deans, comparable faculty members of other educational organizations.
I really don’t know by which standards they decide such things. If you know me in the context of The University, you know that there is nothing I have done to deserve the most beautiful piece of junk mail nor is there anything I wish to do in order to make myself believe that this is an actual award.
I just shake my head.
