You should be able to put having a GF/BF on your application.
« on: December 01, 2005, 03:06:00 PM »
Goodness. Talk about most time-consuming extracurricular, especially when their family is pyschotic and they live an hour away at another school you commute to twice a week.

Plus, this shows you've got people skills, right? And time management? Arguing ability? Ability to deal with annoyances and work under harsh conditions?

..... Stamina? ....

Here's a nice light-hearted thread for your dudes. Let's not all go off the deep end with our paranoia.

I agree.  This brings to mind a classic Brent-ism (a propos of our avatars):

For me to be attracted to a woman, she's got to be as intelligent, or slightly less intelligent than me. She is.

Exactly...except as you pointed out, they DON'T go on your apps, and hence SOs are a major waste of time in college (IMO). That's time taht could be spent doing something (arguably) more productive - like eh, getting good grades, doing research, running student orgs, or even fostering multiple platonic friendships.

Of course I could be bitter b/c I spent my freshman and sophomore years of school being someone's girlfriend/being a general object of desire rather than trying to figure out how to get good grades  :P

This is obviously bull.  I have way too many ex-boyfriends with bad people skills, time management, ability to deal with annoyances, and, yes, "stamina"  :D

They might not have had great "arguing ability," but they sure liked to try  :P

while being a girlfriend during the past year i have campaigned for the elections (both last year's presidential and this year's local,) worked at least 20 hours a week, taught a college course as an undergrad TA, realized my potential to become a law student and attain some sort of legal career (and, obviously, apply to law school...taking the LSAT...twice...through his motivation) and overcome my own personal obstacles. I don't think I could have been any more productive without him. I'm a more open person (if thats possible) and every day...this is going to sound sappy, sorry...he makes me realize i can do better than I did yesterday.

ya'll are just jealous.

Or unlucky  ;D  No really though, I don't think relationships are inherantly bad, but most of the ones I've seen (and been in) that take place during college (especially early college) are a huge time suck. Especially for women - we tend to rearrange our lives to suit some guy's needs, and they never seem willing to do the same.

EDITED to add: kruddler just proved my point above

Having a bf does take a lot of time...my first college bf didn't like how busy I was. Luckily now I'm dating a grad student who spends all his time working on his thesis. So I can go and do everything and he's still sitting in his office programming.

The main reason I got rid of my ex was so that I would have more time to study for my 2nd try at the LSAT.







That and he urinated on my shoes....
