OCI Hokey Pokey

BY MATT HUTCHINS

You write a resume
You go to O-C-S
They say your resume
is full of misspelled words

You think you’ll never fix it
but your second draft is gold.

That’s what it’s all about.

You hear a seminar
on what the firms want
you hear a seminar
on how to dress and talk

You missed out on the pizza
’cause you weren’t there by 12.

That’s what it’s all about.

You do the Ohhhh – See – Ah – High
You do the Ohhhh – See – Ah – High
You do the Ohhhh – See – Ah – High

That’s what it’s all about.

***

You bid for Sullivan
You bid for Debevoise
You bid for Davis Polk
And then you change them all

Forget the summer surveys
Why not bid for number one?

That’s what it’s all about

You put a grey suit on
You take the grey suit off
You put the grey suit on
And go to the hotel

You eat some chocolate prezels
And you try to fake a smile

That’s what it’s all about.

You do the Ohhhh – See – Ah – High
You do the Ohhhh – See – Ah – High
You do the Ohhhh – See – Ah – High

That’s what it’s all about.

You go to Temple Bar
You go to Chez Henri
You go to Grafton Pub
And schmooze with all the firms

You drink a couple cocktails
And you shake a partner’s hand

That’s what it’s all about.

You get a callback here
You get a callback there
You get a callback here
And then they fly you out

You talk for half the day
And then they take you out to lunch

That’s what it’s all about

To get a J-O-Bee-eee
You do the song and da-ance
That we call O-C-I

That’s why you came to Harvard.
