Oh, Cornell, I thought we had a chance
with my 165 LSAT, your suggestive glance
ninety-second percentile, I thought with a smile
will surely get me T14 by a mile!
Oh, Cornell, I thought this was going to workley
to me you were more attractive than Berkeley
with your mountains of snow and days without sun
your library pics- I thought you were the one!
But then, oh Cornell, much to my distress
I spent time online, specifically TLS
where I realized that all my 165 pride
was misplaced and I almost broke down and cried,
But I stayed strong, oh Cornell, I made my way through
Didn't let myself get bummed out over you
I even rebuilt my pride some, thought maybe I'd fluke
my way into your arms-make the 170s puke!
But today, sweet Cornell, checking status in boredom
I sank when I saw "waitlisted" at Fordham
So now, oh Cornell, I finally see
that you and I prob'ly aren't meant to be.
Despite the depressive state around here, this is awesome. I read it in the style of Dr. Seuss. I think it needs illustrations.
