Stop with the "I Made a grammatical mistake" threads.
« on: January 11, 2008, 08:23:55 PM »
Really, ad-coms won't care if you make a mistake or two.   They will notice if every other sentence has mistakes.  So please, take a chill pill.

sorry, I know I just posted one of these too... while logically I know it probably won't get me dinged anywhere I wouldn't be dinged already, it just makes me feel dumb and insecure.  and given how stressful this whole process already is, I didn't really need to make myself feel even more on edge.

It's more of a need to vent somewhere where I know people will at least sort of relate.  If I vent to my friends about something like this, they think I'm insane.  Whereas here, people might think I'm insane, but the application process is driving them a little insane, too.

Can't touch this
Canít touch this
Can't touch this
Canít touch this

My, my, my, my music hits me so hard
Makes me say oh my Lord
Thank you for blessing me
With a mind to rhyme and two hyped feet
Feels good when you know you're down
A superdope homeboy from the Oaktown
And I'm known
as such
And this is a beat uh you can't touch

I told you homeboy,can't touch this
Yeah, that's how we livin' and ya know,
can't touch this
Look in my eyes man, can't touch this
Yo let me bust the funky lyrics, you canít touch this

Fresh new kicks and pants
You got it like that now you know wanna dance
So move out of your seat
And get a fly girl and catch this beat
While it's rollin' hold on
Pump a little bit and let them know it's going on
Like that, like that
Cold on a mission so fall on back
Let 'em know that you're too much
And this is a beat uh they can't touch

Yo I told you, can't touch this
Why you standing there man, can't touch this
Yo sound the bell school is in sucker
, can't touch this

Give me a song or rhythm
Making no sweat that's what I'm giving 'em
So now they know
You talk about the Hammer when youíre talking Ďbout a show
That's hyped and tight
Singers are sweatin' so pass them a wipe
Or a tape to learn
What it's gonna take in the 90's to burn
The charts legit
Either work hard or you might as well quit


That's word because you know
Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Break it down!
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Stop! Hammer time!

Go with the flow it is said
If you can't move to this then you probably are dead
So wave your hands in the air
Bust a few moves run your fingers through your hair
This is it for a winner
Dance to this and you're gonna get thinner
Now move slide your rump
Just for a minute let's all do the bump

Bump bump bump yeah, you can't touch this
Look man, can't touch this
You'll probably get hyped boy 'cause you know you can't,can't touch this
Ring the bell school's back in, break it down!
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Stop! Hammer time!

Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Break it down!
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Stop! Hammer time!

Every time you see me, that Hammer's just so hype
I'm dope on the floor and I'm magic on the mic
Now why would I ever stop doing this
With others makin' records that just donít hit
I toured around the world from London to The Bay
It's Hammer go Hammer MC Hammer Yo Hammer and the rest can go and play

Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Yea, Can't touch this
I told you, can't touch this
Too hype can't touch this
Get me outta here, you can't touch this

I can has lauskul!

Maybe someone should start an official grammar mistake thread and everyone could post there in case of worries.  It'd let everyone get out their worries (a valuable part of this board) and prevent too many threads of the same type.
CLS 2011.  All done.

Really, ad-coms won't acre if you make a mistake or two.

Alright, I've let it stand like this all day, but I've got to say it: that is a ridiculous typo, and one that no causal reader could miss. Proofread your applications carefully, otherwise you may look ridiculous.

When I type fast, I always make mistakes of that manner.  I'll fix it just for you.

i know for a fact that adcomms care a lot about typos in PS's. it's part of the deal to not mess up on you application. i hope you people didn't handle the LSAT this casually. if you guys opened a book once in a while you'd realize that people shouldnt make typos if they want to be taken seriously, and not just in law school.

When I type fast, I always sound like a condescending jerk. Sorry... I should have put one of these at the end:  ;D
