Thank you for applying for the position of Trial Attorney with the U.S.No, thank you for telling me how many applicants you've had. Normally, I get pissed off when I'm told that there were other, more qualified, applicants. I figure someone looked at my resume and thought, "No. This guy isn't what we're looking for. At least not compared to this guy who was on moot court!!" (fuck you, moot court) But, with 1200 applicants, I'm confident that they picked 10 random resumes, gave those people interviews, and sent the rest this email. I know that's what I would do. (the "EEOC"). We were overwhelmed with more than 1200 applicants, and appreciate your interest.
Although your background and qualifications are impressive, we have selected other candidates who more closely met the requirements of the position.

Again, thank you for your interest in the EEOC.
On a side note, this email should be sent to anyone thinking of going to law school. Just slip it in with that packet schools send to prospective students. Like a free t-shirt, only depressing.
