OPhere tells us more.
OP here. To the people who said I deserved it, my psychotic mother actually had the balls to craft a fucking rejection letter and mail it to me. I was sixteen and had never seen an authentic denial letter from Yale---you guys would've believed it, too, had you been in my shoes. To the people who keep bringing up e-mail: it was 1996. As my generation will tell you, we grew up without the internet. To the people who agree that my mom's a bitch, damn straight she fucking is. My daughters and son will not be seeing much of mee-maw anymore, nor will I. To the people who said I wouldn't be who I am today without that lie: Doesn't matter; parents are supposed to nurture their children, not deprive them for personal gain.

Wow, that is harsh. Usually parents want the best for their children. It's sad to hear that your mom didn't want that because her pride was more important to her. FYL, OP!
^Very true! My mom used to tell me she wanted me to have better than what she did. Now that I'm a mother, I feel the same way. I would be very proud of my kids, not jealous of what they accomplish because its better than what I did. OP's mom needs some parenting lessons!
Time to make reservations for your dear Mom at the worst retirement home you can find.
