Dearest Berkeley

Postby LilMonsterAnnie » Tue Jan 11, 2011 4:45 pm

Thank you Dean Tom for the kind email – even if it did land in my inbox.

I am personally CRUSHED as my numbers and softs are exactly what you are looking for. I have listened repeatedly to people say how ‘holistic’ you are and how much you embrace 'diversity', but you have proved to me you do not subscribe to either one.

I am willing to grow hair under my armpits, kiss girls (and like it) and never shave my legs again (or my pooty). I will engage in the saving of whales, ants and the gerbil next door. I will help to feed small children and old people from remote 3rd world countries and find a cure for cancer. I will sell my SUV and learn to ride a bike again. I will give freely to all the panhandlers on the fringes of campus. I will volunteer to help the poor law librarian next fall when all the incoming 1Ls enter. I will promise to spread love and happiness to all who enter my presence. I will promise to eat at Chez Panisse, eat granola daily, shun all meat and embrace vegetarianism. I will overlook how rude the 2 & 3Ls are and give them all hugs – daily.
If ONLY you would change your mind *sniff*

I would like to slam you into next year. However, I cannot. You were one of my top schools and I am devastated.

Now. Would you like to send me a fifth of Stoli for that $75.00 I spent? I need to drink myself into oblivion as I lie on my bed and sob tonight.
I will also pass this bottle around to my fellow TLS Berkeley Ding friends.

Thanks Dean Tom. You are the BEST.

If I make one person feel better, then maybe it is not all bad right?

I actually attended a class there and found the professor dismissive and unfriendly as well as the campus cramped with fliers/litter floating all over the place. I would still overlook all that. I am such a whore.

Dear Berkeley:

Thank you for holding onto my app for 4 months. The digital email rejection was very timely. You weren't my first choice but I did spend good money on you with no strings attached. I have no regrets but I did hope that you'd at least spend 40 cents on stamps for me.

Dear Chicago,

Despite your professed intellectual environment, the lone UChicago student I know spent most of his time in UG 1) in his frat, 2) getting wasted or snorting coke in his frat, or 3) talking about getting wasted or snorting coke, in his frat or elsewhere.

I, on the other hand, more prudently balanced my academics with getting wasted, and achieved a BETTER GPA and LSAT score than he.

I will take my love of learning elsewhere.

I went to UChicago for grad school, and did not apply for law school. Your friend sounds exceptional; most of the UChicago undergrads I knew spent most of their time walking with their heads down and muttering to themselves. They also have a famous hatred of the school. Don't worry about not getting in.

From what I was able to deduce from the movie "Jerry McGuire," pooty is something that one shouldn't shoplift.

When I was there (2005) I got a kick out of asking the student ambassadors the following question: "Is it here or Cornell that..." I never got any further before I was promptly interrupted with "CORNELL! CORNELL!" This happened at least 4 times. Maybe things have changed...

Dear Chicago,

I'm sorry I didn't have good enough stats for you. But perhaps I'm better served going elsewhere. You once had one of the best football programs in history, and then just up and quit. I hate quitters. Also I prefer my law degree without the bullets. Thanks for nothing. Really you did me a favor- I've had enough of this freezing, corrupt city.

Dear Stetson,

As appealing as going to the state's 4th best law school may be, I'm glad my optons were narrowed down, with a few things put into prospective. While the prospect of racking up as much debt as a Harvard education, with no job prospects may look good to some, I'll settle for low to no post graduation debt. While your buildings, done in that rather cliche' Spanish colonial style may be aesthetically pleasing to some, thoughts of possible Spanish/American War fastbacks from a past life now surface. As wonderful as living in an area where the median age is 75, may seem to most, I'll instead live the life of a Miami Vice extra. Your International Law program does seem appealing, however poorly placed. Illegals do not swin to Tampa Bay, rather opt to stop in Miami. The whole Keys and left turn seem to confuse them. All in all, I hate you. :cry:

Signed,

I don't really hate you, please reconsider. :oops:
