Its probably a legitimate point that some law students enjoy discussing the law, I am not adverse to it if people talk about it from a policy perspective, like "I think the law should be x, instead of Y because...", but I get bored pretty quickly if people talk about hypos or something like that on a social occasion.

There's plenty of law school dating going on at USC.

As for the "date undergrads because they're hotter, easier, etc." thing, I think you'll find that a lot harder than you expect. Most people don't find their girlfriends, hook ups, whatever by just randomly bumping into them on campus. Most find that through common friends. Your friends will all be law school students.

I'm glad I really don't have to worry about this. My BF should be coming with me. If that doesn't work out for whatever reason, I don't plan to date... especially anyone in LS.

That's funny, because I hardly ever talk about law as it applies to real life issues... it's all stuff like how to escape liability for "accidentally" pushing someone annoying off of the hayride we were on.  Or discussing how to defeat Voldemort by taking him to court instead of having a giant battle (For instance, does the muggle world have personal and subject matter jurisdiction over wizards?).  You know, important stuff. :)

Law school dating is the best. It's been nothing but models and bottles for me.

gym and library is what i'm planning on.  plus i'll definitely be cruising the undergrad bars

How do you plan on doing that?  How do you just go up to someone else at the gym or library who you don't know, strike up a conversation, and go out on a date w/ them?  Seems random and potentially creepy.

Yeah, but law students aren't "most people." As far as traditionally desirable traits go, male law students are highly likely to be more desirable than the average undergrad. They'll be older; more likely to have a prognosis of high income potential; more likely to be intelligent; more likely to have good time-management skills and other indicators of "maturity."

Further, even failing those traits that are generally accepted as traditionally desirable, many male law students will also have higher levels of aggression, competitiveness, social graces, self-confidence, and leadership potential, all of which (in my dastardly world view) often "fool" women into desiring the man even if he lacks other desirable characteristics.

In other words, generally the male law student is more of an amalgam of effective female-catching characteristics than is an average undergrad male.

As far as female law students go, I'm not so sure. The ones I've met have been rather bottom-heavy ... perhaps from all that sitting around reading LSD.com. Further, I don't enjoy aggressively over-competitive women. They seem to me to believe that the act of "winning" arguments doesn't require, in any manner, rationality or sensible responses, and will view all discussion and refinement of a point as opposition and therefore as a personal attack. Though this sort of insecurity is fetching when the girl is demure, supplicative, or submissive and open to my advances, it is annoying as heck when it comes with extra weight, a male body posture and body type, or a wrong-headed view of something obvious that we've all studied.

In other words, law school women often view themselves as the sort of "strong women" that (it annoys them to note) men dislike. That's because their "strength" is actually just abusive aggression, self-aggrandizement, and lack of social skills.

So, I think the guys kind of have it made, as long as we don't go trolling among the female law students. I don't care whether these prototypical female law students are doing well with some other population or not, because I won't be socializing with them very much anyway, and I certainly won't be targeting them.


Yes, its true when us guys get to law school we suddenly become handsome, charming, rich, and rid ourselves of any personality quirks we had before....OR NOT.  Some undergrads may be initially impressed, maybe, some won't care, but after that if you were not a lady's man before, law school doesn't magically transform you.

I very much value that the law school girls are intelligent, I would probably prefer a law school in the abstract because she is smart, aggressive women don't bother me either-though in real life it would really depend on the girl-definitely some undergrad girls would click with more personally more than some law girls, but in general I would prefer a law school girl.

Personally, I am frankly LOVING the fact that potential competitors for the affection of attractive, intelligent young women, might demonstrate the level of awareness of the dynamics behind dating which are demonstrated in these and similar posts. See y'all at The Cave, boys! Don't forget to bring your textbooks! I'll be the one over on the other side of the room lip-locking with the ... wait for it ... models and bottles ...  ;D ;D

I think I would pay to see this... kinda like a side show act.

All the hot law school girls are gone by end of 2L, they realized how difficult this whole law school thing is by that time and went after the working lawyers/already made partner guys at the school networking events. They decided marrying a lawyer was easier than being one. We are left with the dogs and the feminists by the time you get to 3L. Its true, for serious. 

Sounds like I will have a short law school career and expensive wedding... unless there is an exception to the rule. ;)
