clicky, like HS, but everyone is VERY quiet in class, and afraid to talk.
is this your experience?
not for you though...
So over the summer, I had a lot of free time. So I would send weekly updates to a bunch of friends via email. And at the end I would add a rewritten song to match something that happened that week.
So I wrote this the week before the LSAT, and it is rewritten from Beauty and the Beast, "Be Our Guest". Enjoy
Take Our Test
My poor pre-law student: It is with deepest pride and greatest sadism that we
welcome you today
And now, we invite you to relax (ha!), please pull up a chair, as the LSAC
proudly presents - the LSAT
Take our test, take our test
Which the law schools all request
Get your pencils all aligned and then prepare to be assessed.
Logic games, reading comp,
And logical reasoning you must tromp.
Then you'll stop against your wishes-
Our time limits are so vicious.
They'll enthrall, they'll entrance,
In the end, you'll wet your pants
For your body functions must all be suppressed
You may not leave the room until you've met your doom
So take our test-yes, our test-take our test.
For four hours you will stay
'Til your nerves begin to fray
At the fare you will stare-quite a harried time delay.
You're alone and you're scared
You feel completely unprepared
Life is gloomy, hope is draining
While your gray matter is straining
Find assumption, logic flaw,
Parallel reasoning to shock and awe
And if you don't know just be sure that you have guessed
You took a Kaplan class and now you hope you'll pass
So take our test-
--If you impress, you'll go to Stanford in the west-
Take our test, take our test, take our test.
Your wallet is still hurting, for the cost is disconcerting.
There's a hole from that toll that lingers on.
Ah, those good old days when tests were cheaper;
Suddenly those good old days are gone.
Ten weeks you've been cramming, while the LSAT you've been damning,
You need exercise, a chance to run and play
'Stead you bought a timer with no beeper
Lately you've been lazy. Now it's test day and you're crazy!
It's the test! It's the test!
Sakes alive, now I'm obsessed
Al, Bob, Chris, Dan, Eric, Fritz must be arranged as they suggest.
And a political allusion.
Mix necessary with sufficient,
Now my logic's all deficient.
Ballpoint pens would cause a stir,
Accentuate with highlighter
But if you write with it your test is repossessed
I don't know why they do, but believe; it's true
On this test, insane test, crazy test.
Take our test, take our test,
And let's hope you do your best:
This one day equals four years' worth GPA and all the rest.
Admission, waivered fee
If you score a 180.
Let the knowledge begin flowing,
Tough endurance, keep on going.
Part by part, one by one,
'Til you shout, "Enough, I'm done!"
Then your scores you'll get at 10 [am] post-birthday fest.
Perhaps you'll be hungover, but the wait will be over
Take our test, take our test, take our test
Please take our test!
I think Seattle U uses your degree GPA to calculate the admission index as well. I saw it on LSAC; linked to it from my transcript report.
