UncategorizedThe LSAT

September 4, 2013

If you enjoyed what I wrote about Old Spice and Yoplait you’ll love this

It’s the grand daddy of them all

The law school admissions test

Brought to you, if I remember correctly 40 years later, by the Educational Testing Service

You have to take the LSAT to get into law school

I was sick the day I took it

Didn’t do well

Took it the next go round

Wasn’t sick

My score put me in the top 10% of the country

My math score in the top 1/10th of 1% of the country

I was accused of cheating

Told they wouldn’t give me my score

Told me I had to take the test again

And if I did better I’d get the new score

I took the test again

In a room by my self

A basement room at the U of A with the window 10 feet from the floor

A “guard” outside the door

And did better than the second time

And the bastards didn’t keep their word and give me the new score

The first score, with my mediocre college grades, wasn’t good enough for the U of A

The second score was

I spent two years living in Tacoma, Washington, attending the University of Puget Sound, instead of living in Tucson, attending the U of A

My grades were good enough to get me back here for year three

This is your corporate America folks

Fight these sons of bitches as hard as you can

Most of them don’t care a pinch about you

All they care about is money and power

Nameless and faceless, your worst science fiction nightmares come true

A blue square with the letter j and b in it.
