You were probably too busy spraying your desk with roach killer


I just burst out laughing.

Hopefully they spend your application money on some rat traps as well

Dear schools that send me e-mails etc. that aren't about whether I'm in or not but "season's greetings" and other niceties,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97BfC4Lg ... re=related

"Why’d you call me today with nothing new to say?
You pretend it’s just hello, but you know what it does to me to see your number on the phone.
Now tell me, what do you want? What do you want? What do you want from me?
Are you tryin’ to bring back the tears or just the memories?
You keep takin’ me back, takin’ me back where I’ve already been.
When we hang up it’s like I’m losing you again.
Can’t you see? So what do you want, what do you want from me?

I get so tired of living like this.
I don’t have the time, neither do my friends,
To stay up at night, to pull me through,
And to find the things to keep my mind off of you.

So, now tell me, what do you want? What do you want? What do you want from me?
Did you call to say you’ve find someone and I’m a used- to- be.
You keep takin’ me back, takin’ me back where I’ve already been.
If you’ve moved on why does it feel like I’m losing you again?
Can’t you see? So what do you want? What do you want from me?

What do you want me to say?
That I’m content? That I’m on the fence? That I wish you would’ve stayed?
Oh baby what do you want, what do you want, what do you want from me?..."

jtravis wrote:Dear Vanderbilt,

Technically, not a ding....but it certainly feels like one. I write you a Why Vanderbilt? essay, work at the University for 2 years, above your 25% LSAT, above your 75% GPA, applied early, schlepped downtown for the alum interview, and that's still not good enough for you? I even did my master's thesis on Cornelius Vanderbilt's founding of the university!!

But, I guess you're right. I should go to a school that has some semblance of school spirit. That IS important to me. I see more Univ. of Alabama and Univ. of Florida apparel than I do Vandy. This proves to me your students not only lack school spirit, but also good taste. I remember a football game I had the misfortune of being dragged to, and being disgusted that 3/4 of the stadium was filled with the visiting team. The only NFL prospect of note you have ever produced is a d*ck. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=6017986

What's that? You have academic standards that impair your ability to compete? Funny, Northwestern and Stanford are BETTER schools and they seem to fielding decent, even good, football teams from time and time. And, by the way, being the smartest school in the SEC is like being the skinniest girl at fat camp. I wouldn't feel too good about myself.

Your LSAT median was a whopping 162 only 9 years ago. Now, it's 169? You're a social climbing whore desperate to join the 'cool kids' in the T14. Too bad if anyone is going to do it, it's going to be Texas/UCLA. I remember the girls just outside the A-team being the cruelest in high school. That's you.

Keep telling yourself that you have name recognition throughout the country. Vanderbilt is more famous as 1). a pair of jeans from the 80's (thanks Gloria!) and 2). a NEW ENGLAND family. If the so-called 'Southern Ivies' were the Pussycat Dolls, Duke would be the lead singer (you know, the only one people recognize), Vanderbilt, Tulane, Emory, etc. are her backup dancers with jacked-up faces.

Also, why are you BRAGGING about your law school being one of the most expensive in the country? That's f*$($ed up.


EDIT: I'm not really a jerk and I don't REALLY feel this way....just a little hurt. :(


Excellent.

Dear University of Texas,

Congratulations on having the first football team to ever play for a national championship one year, and not be bowl eligible the next. No one else has ever managed that before (I checked). Congratulations to you for your impressive achievement. In addition to not having to wear hick hunter orange for the next 3 years, you have also saved me the trouble of attending law school with a bunch of delusional students so busy salivating over their school's #15 ranking they haven't bothered to notice that the other T-14 schools have sat them at the children's table again. Have a wonderful time graduating law students who will be hopelessly passed over by much more qualified candidates from schools people care about while they feebly attempt to fulfill their idiotic dream of "making a difference."

Sincerely,
Mike

P.S. FYI Austin is pretty much just Madison, but less fun.

Dear Harvard,

I am not even really mad about your rejection. You didn't auto-ding me, and that is all I could hope for. Although attending your law school would have been great, it is nice to know that I will not be forced to move to Boston by an offer of admission that I could not refuse. I have much love for you, Harvard, but I have no love for Red Sox fans.


Sincerely,

Dear USC, BERKELEY, and UVA

I think you guys schemed to torture me by sending me the rejections one after another.

Well this is how I feel about you:

Terrance McQuewick=Bekeley
USC+UVA = Lloyd

And I don't know if it's exactly parallel...but this is how I feel (the first half and the last 4 seconds only).

No, not at all. It's sort of like Madison except the girls aren't pale and fat. Oh yeah, it's also different in that it's home to a good state school.

Why come to the Ding Bar if you are going to get offended by the dings? The whole point of the Ding Bar is to justify a rejection using obviously stereotypical/loosely accurate/funny facts about schools that are petty

Dearest PENN STTTTTTTTTATTTTTTTTTEEEEE:
Thank you for taking over 2 and a half months to Waitlist Me. I knew I had a decent shot, but would most likely end up there anyways, but 2 and a half months?!?!?! Come on now! I applied way back in October, and was under review by mid november. If you knew you wanted to wait and see how the rest of the applications came for this cycle, you could have easily sent out the WL earlier. You must have hired all of Joe Paterno's brothers and sisters to run the admissions process. You took so long, I could have walked the Rocky mountain trail, sailed across teh world, and not have missed a thing. I mean, Molasses in Alaska is faster than your decision making process. Did you decide to conferr with Campus Number 2, and decide to rely on the horse and buggy to get there and back? Joe Pa is great, but hes not so great that since he doesnt really know how to use a computer, that doesnt mean taht all admissions people need to not use them either. I see your Waitlist, and Raise you my Rejection. See how fast that took?!! Less than one half of one working business day, and bam, I informed you of my decision. That wasnt so hard, was it, ( and its pretty easy too- just like how every team that plays you in a bowl game easily has their way).

Have a good one
Northwood
P.S. You dont really have a law school. You had to go out and buy one, and didnt try that hard to hide the fact you purchased another school.
