Ole Miss girls are hot, too. I think Ole Miss, SMU, Vandy, Alabama, and UGA has the hottest girls.

I'm not really into that south florida/beach look, so that's why I'm not as partial to the Florida State crowd.

Hotter girls at SMU or FSU? Explain

Depends... SMU is a combination of Southern Debutantes and Important People in Texas' daugthers. I'd say about 75% are drop-dead gorgeous, 15% are above-average, and 10% are there on scholarship.. However, the skinny blonde look is what's prevalent. If you're more into exotic or non-Barbie types, it might not be your choice.

I think SMU girls are great, but they tend to be a little high-maintenance and uptight - but that doesn't really bother me. And if you land one for the long haul, you may never have to work again.

Mustang- I've heard that the law school has no interaction with the rest of the school.  That would suck if you are so close to tons of hot girls but never see them out at the bars.  How true is this?  And if that's the case, what are the girls like in Dallas besides SMU.  Also, have you been to FSU, and if so what was your impression there?


I go to SMU as well, and I must say that is a PERFECT description of the SMU girls.  I guess the only thing I would add is...since most of the chicks look IDENTICAL from far away (blonde, Gucci sunglasses, skirt, tan), be careful who you hit on.  You might see a chick that looks decent from far away, but in reality is HORRENDOUS up close.

Be sure to just congratulate her on her Hunt or President's Scholarship and calmly walk away, haha.

Dallas girls look like SMU girls, they've just got crazy credit card debt instead of daddy footin' the bill, haha.

There's not a whole lot of interaction between the two as a whole, but if you're a male law student at SMU... it's not like girls will avoid you. SMU's not exactly a school full of girls trying to find high-power jobs. There's a heavy-dose of the MRS factor (hell, they're all from TX or The South)... and they have to bring home a guy that the parents will approve of... a law school guy fits that category.

There are undergrad girls that studied in the law school library. And SMU kids only go to like 3-4 bars (Home Bar, Ozona's, Barley House, Milo's). I've seen it where the law school has Happy Hours at those bars and there's never any clashing unless some d-bag law school guy decides to pick a fight with us frat boys on our own turf. Then we have to show them up haha, just don't be that guy and it'll be fine.

If you graduate Top-10%, you'll probably get some offers if you apply for Charlotte or Atlanta jobs. But those aren't markets where USC places heavily. Alston & Bird, a CLT/ATL firm, does OCI at USC however.

If you want to work in the state of SC, USC is the best. Over 80% of the lawyers in-state went to USC. The Columbia, Greenville, Charleston markets are all dominated by USC grads. Charleston, though, is a tough market to break into because everyone wants to work there. However, if you don't go to USC, you're more at a disadvantage than if you do.. and making connections with Charleston residents while in law school would be easier if you went to USC than anywhere else.

I'm headed to USC in the fall, and I really liked it. The students seem laid back and it has a really friendly atmosphere. The law school building isn't really all that nice, but that wasn't as big of a deal to me as where I wanted to practice.

Savannah, in my opinion, would be a market that depended more on your connections to the city rather than just where you went to law school. Due to proximity I am sure that USC wouldn't really hurt you, but I don't know if going there would overcome a lack of connections to the city that tends to be pretty important in many of the Old South legal markets.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Best school for the south????

Vandy gives you the most leeway in all the Southern states. If you go to Vandy, no firm in a Southern market is going to snub you. Emory is a good school, but it doesn't have the Southern Good Ole Boy reputation that Vandy carries.

Markets like Atlanta and Charlotte are going to be more about the higher ranking of the school you go to, and how you place in your class like Houston, Chicago, Dallas, etc. Atlanta and Charlotte aren't as Old South as markets like Birmingham, Jackson, Columbia, Louisville, Raleigh, Memphis, Savannah, Charleston, Augusta, etc. and even Nashville. In those markets, if you're not from there, you better go to a school where the firms in that market heavily recruit. You also need to be prepared to prove that you want to stay in that market and work there for the long haul. The firms aren't like the big Texas and ATL/CLT firms where they don't mind or expect high turnover. They want loyalty.

I have no idea about FL firms. I really wouldn't consider anything south of Jacksonville the "South" really. I've heard the N'awlins market is pretty insular like Old South markets -- but I have no factual basis or any real proof of that.

You're right, I need to lighten up.  There's nothing wrong with cold beer, hot girls, and southern football.  Can you imagine having to sit through three years of big ten or big xii north football?  I think i'd go blind if I had to watch females repeatedly doing shots of ranch dressing.  After four years of home and home ACC basketball, I've been to Cameron four times.  The sight of their grad/ professional student section has been seared into my memory.  The undergrads were annoying, but the sight of students in their mid-twenties and thirties trying to get a life after missing out during hs and college was too much.   

Haha.. that is sad... well, their first problem is they tried to get a life at Duke. That's not possible as an undergrad, much less as a grad student. Those are the guys that probably went to the fraternity houses to talk to the undergrad chapters that they pledged at a different school. We had a few guys come to our house one time at SMU... and we were like "ummm, yeah. Y'all graduated. And you weren't in our house on this campus. What are you doing here?"

Hear you on the Northern Football.. or how bout the Big (L)East? That would be even worse! Any school where the girls think it's alright to just show up to football games in sweats and no make-up ain't cool by me. I mean, even though SMU was pretty bad, the girls were always dressed up looking fine-- so it made it helped to ease the pain of the sorry on-field performance.

Imagine going to a crappy football school... and the girls being ugly... <shudders>

I'm going to the SEC, but not planning on going to football and basketball games.  Am I the only one who used to make fun of the grad students who suddenly became big fans? 

Grad students painting themselves and acting obnoxiously is one thing. But I don't see any harm in tailgating and taking in some great football every weekend. Why not support the athletics of the school you're at?

SMU will always be my team.. but c'mon man, after that for 4 years?! And yes -- I went to every frickin home game, I deserve something else haha.

Kruddler, I will laugh at you if you're at the Cotton Bowl because your team won't be there.  :o

Tech hang 70 on Spurrier. Yeah Right. Maybe if he faced him 10 times. Why don't you try scoring more points against Alabama than Ole Miss did? After all, Ole Miss had an incredible offense.. I know, I know -- Tech was worn out from that rough out-of-conference schedule and that brutal rivalry game against 4-7 Oklahoma State (how does it feel to be someone's lone conference win??).

Tech went 9-2 last year because they played Sisters of the Poor, Brothers of the Blind, and the JV Squad from the Hunstville jail last year. And couple that with the Big XII being incredibly down even for the Big XII. If Tech played a decent OOC in 05, Tech is 8-3 or 7-4.

Tech will be in the Alamo Bowl. They will face Penn State. And again they will fall. Get your guns up... now point them at your head.  8)

Yeah, the Big XII is by far #1. A certain 1-loss team SMU drilled (cough: TCU) last year beat the 2nd best team in the Big XII (cough: OU). I had enough CUSA-level football for 4  years <note sarcasm>

SEC had a down year in '05 and Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, and Florida were all still ranked Top-15. Last year the ACC and Big Ten were better top-to-bottom.

I like some Big XII teams, but there is no parity in the Big XII.. and top to bottom there is no weaker division on either side of the SEC. Much better competition, much better talent. Helluva lot better rivalries.

Arkansas will be fun man.. they're kind of the redheaded step-child of the SEC. Came in as a top-dog in their conference (SWC) and couldn't really compete that well in the SEC.. but they still pack some punch and pull off upsets every once in awhile. They should at least make a bowl this year.

Get ready to call for the hogs. And oh yeah, expect a major @$$-kicking from the Gamecocks in Columbia.  8)
