Wait, do people really ask you to prove that you modeled? Wouldn't your naturally stunning good looks be proof enough? What do these people want?!?

:D . I know TLS is filled with man-hating women with bushes. Sorry if I am into the ladies. It would be the height of stupidity for someone not to combine their modeling career angle with the knowledge of what makes women cream. However, this post, and its dripping sarcasm, isn't coming from one of these man-haters. This is coming from a woman I meant at St. Johns ASD a while back. Sorry, but I hate it and quit it SDWaterBaby. You had your chance, but I only stick with the Dime Piece Bittys (DPBs) and yo' nickel ass aint cutting it. MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE ALREADY and stop stalking me on the internet.


Seriously, you are awesome.


PM me with A/S/L and pics.



Sorry man, I'm a straight dude. I'm a big fan of your work, nevertheless.

Seriously! When people ask me to prove if I've modeled, I just face them more directly, shift my weight to one foot, and loosely place my hand in my pockets; then they understand the fault in their questioning 8)

Why would you bring a portfolio of your modeling work with you to ASD or orientation? This is a professional school, not some frat party. Is that the first impression you want to leave with your fellow students? You want to be the person who brought a modeling portfolio with them to a meet and greet with professors? I'm sure the Dean will be very interested in your work.

Any females claiming to model need to post pics or else this thread is useless. I suggest a moderator lock it if we don't see some "Chicks of TLS" pics by page 3.

I will say this, I am hoping my modeling career is a good soft with the ladies in law school. I feel as though most law school guys won't be as good looking as me, and even if they are, once I drop that I am a model I always get hotter chicks. Something about being a model, and having a portfolio just makes you look better to the ladies.

My suggestion is this: Do not use it on your resume, but DO bring your portfolios to ASWs and definitely to orientation. Don't show them to girls if they don't ask to see it (civilians hate it when models flaunt if you haven't figured that out by now) but have it on hand cause they will inevitabley be like "you model? no..shut up! prove it". You want to have the proof on hand.


Referring to nonmodels as civilians...


One of my biggest LOLs in TLS history. This dude has gotta be flaming... and I don't mean the internet kind.

Take that stick out of your ass you dolt.

That said, I obviously agree with the second part of this post.

Do you wear the denim jacket at all times, or do you just carry it in case someone asks?

this thread is friggin hilarious! And flaming in so many ways. Oh - and kind of offensive too. But thats just another day on TLS :-)

Btw- I used to model .... did several ethnic-themed fashion shows. I didn't include it in my law school apps because I had stronger softs, i didn't think it would help my application, and it didn't align with how I was trying to market myself to adcoms.

Is it possible that I have made it to the bottom of page 2 and there are STILL no Zoolander jokes on this thread?

Romo, as an apparent Will Ferrell fan, I am particularly disappointed in you. :)

I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.

Derek Zoolander: Or are you here to tell me what a bad eugoogoolizer I am?
Matilda: A what?
Derek Zoolander: A eugoogoolizer... one who speaks at funerals.
[Matilda looks at Derek confused]
Derek Zoolander: Or did you think I was too stupid to know what a eugoogooly was?

IMDB, is there anything you can't do?

I remember at the Michigan ASW Dean Zeafross mentioned how someone asked her at a previous ASW "why don't you admit more good looking women?" Dean Z said his appearence gave him no reason to ask such a question.
