Fordham said "write us a poem"???

Postby JJDancer » Sat Aug 28, 2010 12:25 am

In the dean's interview on TLS
Fordham on the PS: "Tell us a story! What are you passionate about? Whatever excites you… Write us a poem! Fordham appreciates creativity, but don't be weird."

I thought all/most law schools strongly discouraged anything as "weird/creative" as writing a poem...am I wrong?

EDIT: I'm not planning on writing a poem for Fordham but I was sort of shocked to see that response.

Unless you are extremely confident in your poem skills, I would play the safe card and write another dime a dozen PS.

Funny that I'm applying to Fordham
Oh I could get a 175 I said
Resigned to a 165 instead
Does that matter to you
How about my 4.0 GPA
Actually, LSAC says 3.0
Man I cant wait to go to Fordham!

If you happen to write a poem, be sure to let us know how it goes.
