A 21-year-old man identified as Martin Adams has rejected an offer to do his Masters degree programme at Oxford University on a full scholarship, Agenda Online Newspaper reports.
The young man’s rejection of the scholarship comes three years after the UK institution declined giving him admission.
His brother, Mark Adams narrated the story in a LinkedIn post, as he revealed how Martin had applied to read law at Oxford University at age 18 but he did not get in.
Fortune smiled on Martin at age 21 when he wrote a legal paper that went viral and prestigious universities began to woo him with full master’s scholarship.
Among the universities was Oxford which invited him to be their student, but he declined and replied with a savage letter, where he disclosed that he chose Harvard University instead.
Mark Adams shared a photo of his brother’s letter and wrote;
”My brother applied to Law at Oxford at 18 & was rejected
At 21 he wrote a legal paper that blew up big time
Every uni sought him out and offered a full scholarship
Including the SAME college that had rejected him before
Here was his response…”
“Thank you for your kind letter and the offer of a fully paid masters scholarship at the college. I am truly touched.
“However, I must inform you that your application to me is unsuccessful. In parity with the degree of concern and with respect you show all applicants, I will offer you no reason or explanation for why.
Instead, I simply return to you the exact letter you sent to me 3 years ago this month – with your name swapped out for mine and vice versa.
“I have accepted a fully paid scholarship at Harvard and begin in September.
Have a Nice Life!”
