Why?  Because of the opinions of douchebags who say things like this?  Most of us have enough experience to know that people who say and/or think such things don't matter.

If, on the other hand, you mean something else by "awkward" -- like maybe chairs preferred by biglaw firms tend to feel better to younger butts -- then you have my apologies.

I wouldn't say I'm gunning for BigLaw, but what's awkward about it?

Older students don't stand out unless they are visibly much older. And, there are several people in their late 20s to mid-30s.
I just don't tell people how old I am.
When my classmates talk about how "old" they are, being 30 or whatever, I just sit there acting innocent.  :)

I'm 29, but really don't stand out from my younger classmates. I am not going to go around saying "Hey, I'm 29!" unless it comes up in conversation for some reason.

I would like to recommend computer programmers and engineers for dating purposes.  They may not look cute at a party, but usually they like a smart girl and are eager to please.  :D

As a slightly older student, I did think about the kids thing.  Maybe I will have one someday, but right now I am very aware that law school and a demanding career may not be compatible with that.  My finance and I talked about it and we decided that if it happens, it happens, but we aren't going to plan on having kids for at least 9 or 10 years.

Skip strippers.  They are CRAZY.  I mean, not even good for a one night stand crazy.  :o  To any strippers who are perfectly sane, psycologically healthy people who just needed some quick money, I apologize.  But as a dating rule, I'd approach with extreme care.

I would like to second this.  I mean, for if and when the bad boy/girl phase is over.
   
They aren't badboys in your area? I've sworn off programmers because the ones in this area seem to need rehab more than a girlfriend.
