Your request for reconsideration of your case was received. As a review of your file indicates that you were dismissed from your course of study because of your membership in the wayward sect, it is necessary for you to provide proof of your recantation of your faith in the form of notices published in three highly circulated national newspapers (i.e., publication of the photocopy of your recantation), for our consideration.  Failure to do so will result in [confirmation of the decision to expel you, as already recorded].

From: Executive Committee overseeing appeals from expelled students.
