Any current students: what is it like to have such a large split in the male/female ratio? I've noticed from reading the Virginia Law Weekly and checking out the names of people on Law Review that women seem a little under-represented.
I'd be particulary interested in talking to female students - most of my friends are actually guys, so in some ways the larger male population is a plus (you all are so laid-back), but I still worry about the "good ol' boys'" club.
Comments on this?
Honestly, I had to go check the website to check what the exact ratio way--from being there my first year, it seemed to be nearly an even split. I'm a guy, but for what it's worth, there seems to be no shortage of women at UVA law in my opinion...
The website says 61/39, which is notable but with a class size that big I don't know that I'd really notice.
Exactly--I know (after reading the site) that the ratio is split 3/2, but I never would have guessed it from my day to day encounters... but then again, I'm not much of a people counter in the first place
