General Board / Re: Dating while in law school

LOL :D

This is comedy.

jdmba, I'm hearin ya loud and clear on the undergrad tip.  No disrespect to the ladies in law school, but that's too close to home.  I've been approached and propositioned by 3 girls in my law school and have successfully avoided getting involved with any of them up to this point.  And they're all 3 attractive, which makes it very difficult because I see them everyday. But that's just the problem...you see the people in your school EVERYDAY, 24 hours  a day 7 days a week.  There is no room for error like in undergrad.  You could date somebody on campus in undergrad, and if things didn't work out, hey, you move on and you may not see that person again until the next big party (depending on the size of your college).  Law School, not possible. 

Let me back up...

FIRST OF ALL you don't have time to be worrying about relationship issues in law school anyway.  That's fact #1.  Fact #2 is that word spreads through law school faster than a T3 connection.  You don't want that kind of attention if things should happen to go sour with another law student.  Fact #3 is that if you have the luxury of an undergrad campus attached to your law school, those students will be out of the loop of the law school, respect the fact that you are busy, and will generally require very little maintenance. Plus they get to brag that they're dating a law student to their other undergrad friends and make themselves feel special. Its a win-win.

This is not to suggest that married couples cannot meet in law school, but those are few and far between.  The exception, not the rule.

Your primary concern in law school is to get the best grades you can.  Clingy and needy relationships will get in the way of that.  You can call that fact #4.

Some of my female classmates I notice had alterior motives upon coming to law school.  Some of them, quite frankly, are here to get their M.R.S. degree along with the J.D.  I actually ran across two of my female classmates in the library one day who were depressed and complaining about the fact that they had not been able to find a boyfriend yet in our class.   ???

- No Comment.

well spoken. this is exactly why I am going to slow down on attending law school parties and concentrate on doing well in school and picking up hot undergrad women this semester.

I'm female, 33, single, will be in law school this fall and intend to hook up for fun.  I think a lot of guys find me attractive but I find most of them dumb.  Must be smart, good looking, fun, sexy, great in bed, good kisser, and not too heavy on the commitment.  Not a loser or a walking STD ad.  The hook-up potential is important in my selection of a law school, I'm not ashamed to write.

I hope you come to my school.  Especially if you are as hot as you sound:)

General Board / Re: Skip Class For Interviews?
« on: February 19, 2005, 05:13:24 PM »
Thanks for the advice. I have decided not to travel out of state for any more interviews. I willonly consider phone interviews or local interviews so I do not miss class... I think I will just choose from my existing offers in the next week or two.

I think you are right. I will have all the options in the world next fall. This year I will just settle for the best I opportunity I have found thus far..

General Board / My Investment Banking Interview Today
« on: February 16, 2005, 04:01:47 PM »
After interviewing at many law firms I decided to interview with a few investment banks now also.  I blogged about my interview this morning.  How do you feel that working at an I-Bank 1L summer will look to firms during OCI my 2L fall? I want to do securities law or M&A work at a botique of big law firm? Will law firms question my desire to practice law? Or will they understand that I really want to do securities law and thought working at an I-Bank would be good experience? So far it looks like I will have MANY small and medium law firms offer my a summer job... but no bog law as of yet. I-Banking will allow me to make much more money over the summer than small or medium law. Opinions?

General Board / Skip Class For Interviews?
« on: February 14, 2005, 08:16:47 PM »
Would you skip classes as a 1L to travel out of state for firm interviews?

I do want the best firm job I can get but have been missing a lot of class? I am afraid about falling behind and missing more lectures. What is more important? going to class or interviews? I think I should have several job offers coming soon already.... but I wonder if I can find something even better if I agree to go visit a few more (larger) firms out of state.

Opinions?

sorry about the "Guys like beauty, everything else is secondary." comment. yes I do require beauty but I also require a girl to be smart, honest, outgoing, funny, etc.  Of course I care about the other traits. All I was saying is that even if you have ALL the other traits the most we could ever be is friends if you are not physically attractive.  I do have ugly friends who I like for many reasons... but I would never date them.

General Board / Re: JAG Interview
« on: February 11, 2005, 12:04:09 AM »
I had my JAG  interview today and it went very well. I blogged about it earlier today. I think I actually might like it. The woman that interviewed me was also kind of hot... I thought the JAG women were only beautiful on tv.... but perhaps they are hot in real life too.

thanks for your vote... but actually I went on a JAG interview today and kind of like it. I would never join the armed forces permanently but I think I might like it for one summer.
