You have a reputation for having the most socially inept student body, and that is among the top law schools in the country that are generally filled with nerds and assholes. I am not sure what is more unappealing, your love of rigor or the chance to participate in your social experiment to see whether aspergers can be contagious. When I think about you, all I can think is WoW, as in world of warcraft. Nerds!

By the way you can consider this my LOCI.


Amazing! :lol:

Dear USC,

I really have nothing really to say to you. Thanks for the 2nd rejection (1st was UG, of course). I honestly don't give a flying fuck because I no longer wanted to live in Cali anyway. Even if I end up staying here, I'd rather attend your hotter, better ranked brother because I don't want to live my life in fear that I'll get killed while wishing your brother would have accepted me because he is in a better location. You made my decision to go east much easier, and I can now avoid the awkward situation that might have arisen every time my parents see a Trojan condom commercial and point out that they saw a commercial for USC (they're foreign).

Cheers,
Gotti

Dear UBC (University of British Columbia) your ridiculous "index" system that governs admissions needs to burn in hell, I mean what self respecting school doesn't allow any LOR's? If you took the time to read the part of my application dealing with things other than LSAT and GPA maybe you would have seen how perfect I was for your school. I appreciate the waitlist even though those with higher grades got outright DINGed, however I appreciate your admissions officer bluntly saying that no one with my index score got in last year and with an extra 100 apps the same scenario is almost guaranteed. Why not reject me instead of attempting to give me false hope? I had no intention of moving across the country for your school. You have no BigLaw influence whatsoever in Toronto so going to your institution is a waste anyways, see you on the flip side.

They could always move to the Toronto model: ask for LORs, then ignore them.

^^ I didn't apply to U of T, because I hate that institution with a passion, but I do see your point.

Your high elevation would have made me feel like a little b*tch being drunk off of a only a handful of beers. I'll stay at sea level and keep my pride and my sweet beer gut.

I'll drink one down for you while your students compete with debt-free DU students for employment.

This made me smile.

Barbie, if you want to know how to really drink some beer, come visit me (and the other 1L's) in Iowa City when you can get away from UC for a weekend.

That being said.... (and this is a little late, but useful now.)

Dear Illinois,

I want to thank you again for waitlisting me, instead of throwing piles of money at me like other splitters. You must have really seen in my application that there wasn't a snowball's chance in hell that I'd spend three years in U-C. I have family from small town Illinois, so the 2 times a year I visit them is more than enough. Illini is a stupid name/mascot/whatever. Hawkeyes know how to party 10x better anyways, which is why all the worthwhile Chicago kids come to Iowa for undergrad, and the farmers trickle down to UC.

Y'all have a boot scootin time, y'hear?

Dear Lewis & Clark,

I'm glad things are over between us. I did not want to become a vegan, hipster, or feminist. I like the meat eating, classy, 1950's style woman I currently am. Also I'm afraid I might die of second hand smoke inhalation if I stay in Portland a second longer. Have fun dreaming of the '90's because we all saw how well that worked out the first time.

Gonzaga,

My dream friend, I'm glad we won't be seeing eachother any time soon. I didn't want to have to learn Spanish or get a job as a migrant fruit picker to put myself through law school considering there are no other jobs in Spokane. I know there is a big chip on your shoulder because your friends Seattle U & UW have a stranglehold on the Seattle Legal market (the only legal market in WA) but I'm sure you can go on to do great things....like protect Native American tribes or something? Either way you'll never be as highly ranked as those two no matter what you do.

Thanks,
Kitchuel <3

GW,
Couldn't be bothered to send an actual letter? Did my application and fee mean that little to you? Oh well I guess you really are suffering in this economy if you can't afford the stamp to mail a letter to MD. Maybe I'll help you file for bankruptcy when I'm a lawyer.

Oh Lewis and Clark...

You seem to be trying to "hold" me, but I've never been one for intimacy.

I don't think this is working out...

That's funny, my boyfriend applied there for grad school this year, and he got his rejection yesterday as well. WTF Yale? It's either going to ruin what was otherwise a lovely romantic evening, or push some lonely, desperate spinster/spinteress* over the edge completely.

* I masculinized the original term and then invented a feminized version in order to emphasize my belief that both men and women can be desperately lonely.

You guys have saved my nearly $100 on a clearly pointless application to Yale.

Thanks Harvahd, you started the ball-rolling, but you might have been more sincere in your email
Confirmed by a DLS from Stanford, yet to read, and a more pleasant rejection email from UPenn.

I'll put that money to some more homebrew-making kit!

Dear Duke,
I'd forgotten I'd applied to you. I had no interest in attending a school in Durham but your fee waiver enticed me. I now know you just wanted me to apply to boost your rejection numbers. Assholes. I probably should feel used but I'm already over it.

Don't be a dick.

Anyway. Dear IUB,

I knew I wasn't going to get in anyway with my numbers but I still wanted to be a Hoosier. In retrospect, however, I think you can keep your frattastic frat daddys and sorostitutes that are fucking EVERYWHERE on your campus romping around in leggings and chip clips in their hair.

Moral of the story, LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS (google UIUC nopants blog for proof).

Sincerely,

Michaela
