Admissions Poetry/Music Collection

Postby Micdiddy » Tue Feb 05, 2013 11:00 pm

ITT: We write and spoof poems and music to fit our feelings about the current admissions process. This was started in The Ding Bar, here is what we have so far (as I can find), all Les Mis inspired:

When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that numbers don't define
I dreamed adcomms would be forgiving


Then I was young and unafraid
Retakes were spent and used and wasted
There were no app fees to be paid
No songs unsung, no wine untasted.

Then the emails come at night
With their messages soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.

(Sorry, couldn't resist. Brilliant idea.)

Stop acting so afraaaid.

I know, they'll make, a choice about my fate.

Refresh. Refresh.
You applied much too laaate.

Asha, will say, welcome to YLS!

Refresh. Refresh.
You're Fordham bound at best.

When I get in, you won't see me, checking my status again!

Refresh. Refresh.
Went complete months ago.
Refresh. Refresh.
You'll wait 'till March to knooooow.


Thanks for the idea of this thread Crowing. Let's get those creative juices flowing people! I mean, what else are we supposed to do?

A haiku:

I really hate fun
Law school is masochism
My tears are salty.

In honor of those taking the LSAT this Saturday, and in the key of "Thrift Shop":


Hey, Macklemore! Can we go LSATing?

What, what, what, what...

Bada, badada, badada, bada...

Stuck on this paragraph
Only spent twenty minutes on this passage
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for an answer
This is fucking stupid

Nah, Walk up to the room like, "What up, I got a big c**k!"
I'm so pumped about this shit from the test shop
Mind off the hinge in this goddamn lobby
That proctors like, "Damn! That's a freaked out posse."
Rollin' in, hella deep, headin' to the crowded seats,
Got my writing ink, and my ghetto watch, that’s in sync
Drenched in a nasty stink, girls standin' next to me
Probably shoulda washed up, smell like R. Kelly's sheets
(Piiisssssss)
But shit, I was really, really tense! (Fuck it)

…(rest of verse that I haven’t come up with)...

They had an option C, I guessed an option C
Guessed the answer D, left blank the other 3.
Hello, hello, this reading on Othello
Spock ain't got nothing on my logic game, hell no
I could take some pro things, break em out, use those
Other kids would be like "Aww, he brought the Expos"

I see you admitting all the others on TLS, and I'm like "fuck you".
I guess my LSAT score just wasn't enough, I'm like "fuck you", and "fuck LSAC too".
If my softs were stronger, you would've considered me longer. Now ain't that some shit.
Although there's a denial in my inbox, I still wish you the best with a fuck you.

Edit: that was fun, I might just be inclined to complete the song, haha.

But that don't mean I wouldn't have loaned.
I guess you're a T20 and I'm more TTT.
But the way you read those apps ain't fair.

I pity the fool that falls in debt with you
Oh shit, they're a 170+ digga
Well,
You've only got a 163, brotha.
Ooooooh
I've got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little adcomm

I tried to ask the dean but he told me
"This is one for smart kids."

One last one: to the tune of Changes by Tupac

I see no changes. Check my status checker in the morning and I ask myself,
"Is school worth paying? Should I ding myself?"
I'm tired of refreshing my status and even worse I'm still UR.
My ego hurts, so I'm lookin' for a school to impress.
Adcomm's give a damn about a 163? Push a button, ding a sucker, he's a hero.
Give admits to some kids, who the hell cares? One less hungry pre-law student on the waitlist.
Waitlist, oh fuck & and I'm feeling shitty.
Give 'em a LOCI, step back, and watch 'em laugh to each other.
"It's time to study law", that's what Huey said.
2 LSAT's bombed now Huey's dead.
I got love for my potential law school, but we can never go nowhere unless you make a decision soon.
We gotta start makin' admits.
Learn to see me as a scholar instead of one dismal infant.
And that's how it's supposed to be.
How can the adcomm deny a brother if he's an alum?
I'd love to go back to when I dreamed of biglaw
but my status changed... and a ding it is.

If I can't score 180, I can't score 180. It is as simple as that. It ain't about that at all. It's easy to sum it up if you're just talking about 180s. We're sitting here, and I'm supposed to be the valedictorian, and we're talking about 180s. I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about 180s, not grades, not grades, not grades, but we're talking about 180s. Not the grades that I go out there and die for and get every grade like it's my last but we're talking about 180s man. How silly is that?

Now I know that I'm supposed to lead by example and all that but I'm not shoving that aside like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I honestly do but we're talking about 180s. We're talking about 180s man. We're talking about 180s. We're talking about 180s. We're not talking about grades. We're talking about 180s. When you come to the classroom, and you see me work, you've seen me work right, you've seen me give everything I've got, but we're talking about 180s right now.

At first, I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking, I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking, how you did me wrong
And I grew strong when another t-14 came along

Love it. :lol:

Turns out Bob Marley wrote one about law school admission too:

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love.
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl,
My heart says follow t'rough.
But I know, now, that I'm way down on your line,
But the waitin' feel is fine:
So don't treat me like a puppet on a string,
'Cause I know I have to do my thing.
Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb;
I wanna know when you're gonna come - soon.
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love,
'Cause if summer is here,
I'm still waiting there;
Winter is here,
And I'm still waiting there.
---
/Guitar solo/
---
Like I said:
It's been three months since I'm knockin' on your door,
And I still can knock some more:
Ooh school, ooh school, is it feasible?
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more.
Ya see, in life I know there's lots of grief,
But admission is my relief:
Tears in my eyes burn - tears in my eyes burn
While I'm waiting - while I'm waiting for my turn,
See!

Decided I might as well give it a go.

(me)
One day more,
Another day, another waitlist,
This never ending road to bankruptcy;
These adcomms who treat me like I've committed a crime
Will surely reject me when it comes the time,
One day more...

TLSer 1
How can I live if Cornell rejects me?


All TLSers
One day more...

TLSer 2
UVA, tomorrow you'll be worlds away,
And yet with you, my world could have started.


TLSer 3
One more day with no acceptances.


TLSer 1
Will I ever meet a T-14?


TLSer 3
One more day with NU not caring.


TLSer 2
I'm destined to be at Cooley.

TLSer 3
What a life I might have known.


TLSer 1
And I swear I never will!

TLSer 3
But they never saw me there...


(All TLSers)

One more day before the storm!
At the barricades of our future!
As our status checkers transform,
Will they save a place for us?

Do I accept a TTT?
Shall I join my brothers there?
Do do I dare?

All TLSers

The time is now
The place is here
One day more!

(Adcomms)

One day more thinking they could get in,
We will nip it in the bud!
We'll be ready for these schoolkids,
They will wet themselves with blood!

Watch'm run amuck,
Ding em as they fall,
No such thing as luck
When there's an index for all,
Here a 161
There a 3.2,
If you're not a URM
You'll go down, all of you!

pedestrian wrote:I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that numbers don't define
I dreamed adcomms would be forgiving


Then I was young and unafraid
Retakes were spent and used and wasted
There were no app fees to be paid
No songs unsung, no wine untasted.

Then the emails come at night
With their messages soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
And they turn your dreams to shame.



I spent a summer on their sites
They filled my days with endless wonder
They said my numbers would be fine
But I was dinged when autumn came

Yet still I dream they'll accept me
We'll spend the next three years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather.

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seems...

Law school has killed the dream I dreamed.

Finished. Lets do a TLS version of Les Mis! Somebody please do a version of "Master of the House" that spoofs bullshitting/beefing up average softs, or "Lovely Ladies" that spoofs TTT recruiting :P
