Louis stands outside Rachel's office watching her work before screwing up the nerve to knock on her door and come in. "Got a hard truth to tell you," he says as he sits down. He admits that no, she's not going to Harvard, but that isn't the hard truth. "The truth is you did not get in because I let you down." Rachel asks what he's talking about, and he confesses to the relationship with Sheila and how it went sour. "And she took it out on me?" Rachel asks. Louis offers to write her a recommendation for anywhere else. I don't know why neither of them has hit on the idea of making an Elle Woods-style application video. But since they haven't, at least not yet, there's not much left for either of them to day other than for Louis to apologize. He leaves her alone at her desk to cry. Bad day for Rachel, man.
