Are you all talking about the law schools or the undergrads? The undergrads in no way reflects the career women you will meet in the law schools. Baylor Law has its fair share of gay law students, UT Law is a huge school with every type of woman you could want, SMU Law’s student affairs office sends out an announcement email every week which invites all the students to go drinking at bar review.

Just so you know, SMU has incredibly attractive women in their law school. I was blown away the first day of classes.

And don’t go to Baylor...

SMU, Baylor bare souls over 'Playboy'

Dallas school won't fight photo shoot; Bears clothes-minded

08:18 PM CDT on Friday, October 20, 2006

By MICHAEL E. YOUNG / The Dallas Morning News

Separated by 100 miles of interstate, the Southern Baptists' Baylor University and the United Methodists' SMU seem even farther apart when it comes to students posing in states of undress in a men's magazine.

Southern Methodist University's approach is decidedly hands-off.

When Playboy magazine photographers set up temporary shop next week near SMU for a "Girls of Conference USA" pictorial, they'll do so without university opposition.

"SMU is not a participant in or a proponent of this project, which is sponsored by an off-campus publication," said Kent Best, director of media and communications, in a prepared statement. "Any student's decision to participate is strictly between that student individually and the publication."

Playboy "will not be on campus," Mr. Best added. "It's an individual student's decision" whether to pose.

Not so at Baylor.

When Playboy ran a photo of four bikini-clad coeds and much of the membership of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity four years ago for a "Girls of the Big 12" spread, Baylor's administration quickly responded.

School officials suspended the fraternity for a year and required the 50 or so students to perform community service. One student, who posed individually, was suspended.
Not again

Playboy returned to Waco this spring for another Big 12 shoot. This time, Baylor made a pre-emptive strike.

Dr. Dub Oliver, vice president for student life, sent out a universitywide e-mail warning that posing for "a magazine that is clearly antithetical to Baylor's mission" would violate the school's code of conduct and be penalized accordingly.

That could mean anything from a warning to expulsion, depending on the circumstances.

It worked so well that the Big 12 became the Big 11, generating at least one complaint from a reader who felt shortchanged by Baylor's absence.

That couldn't be helped, Playboy responded on its blog.

"When administrators heard we would be coming to Waco, they threatened to expel any student who posed," the magazine stated.

A few seniors did contact Playboy since they'd have graduated before the photos appeared, "but we thought it wasn't worth them risking their degrees," Playboy wrote.

SMU's stand, leaving the decision to individual students, provides no such difficulties.

So when Playboy publishes its intimate look at the "Girls of Conference USA" in its May 2007 issue, chances are the women of SMU will be fully represented, if not fully clothed.

That was the case back in 1988, when three SMU women posed for a "Girls of the Southwest Conference" pictorial. Playboy officials are optimistic about next week's auditions as well.
Mixed reaction

The visit has generated some attention and a bit of controversy.

In 2004, an editorial in SMU's Daily Campus newspaper said 2003 graduate Amber Campisi embarrassed her alma mater by appearing in Playboy's 50th anniversary model search. And that was even before Ms. Campisi became Miss February 2005.

The upcoming shoot, too, was criticized in an opinion column and letter to the editor in the Daily Campus.

Mostly, though, Playboy's visit is drawing a mixed reaction from students: The men seem enthused, the women more circumspect.

"How could I explain that to my parents?" one wondered at the idea of posing.

Austin Kilgore, editor in chief of the Daily Campus, wrote about Playboy's plans in Tuesday's edition.

"I think before my story, nobody really knew about this," Mr. Kilgore said. "The only reason I knew about it was because [Playboy] took out an ad in the paper, and whenever there's an ad that's a little risqué, I'm asked to approve it."

So he set off across campus to see what people thought.

No one condemned it, though some hoped the school's female students wouldn't be interested in that kind of exposure.

"But when I talked with students," Mr. Kilgore said, "it wasn't like, 'Oh my God!' "
