don't show cleavage. don't show thigh. those are totally inappropriate for a work setting. being good looking and being slutty are two different things. being good looking is fine, as long as you dress appropriately. being slutty is not ok, no matter how attractive you are.

as for megan fox, gotta agree with a'nold. she is good looking. too bad she is so slutty.

Then imagine eating sweet potatoes along with green beans. Then shit it out. Then eat it. Then throw it up. Then eat it again.

Okay serious (but related to this hilarious discussion) question for all you current law students...

Are there any attractive, single, socially normal, non-crazy girls in law school in like the 21-23 range? I feel like my pool of females could be very small. Every school I've visited was full of women who were older, married, in a long term relationship, awkward, or had "thanks but no thanks" looks.

And mallard... sororitutes? Excellent. I'm stealing that.

You've never heard of sorostitutes/sororitutes?

And the problem is that they might look good in law school, but once they become lawyers they begin to look like this:

ITT: People make asses out of themselves pretending Megan Fox isn't a fox.


OP, you're very justified in your concerns about older females and not being taken seriously by some co-workers. But more importantly, you have a major edge in OCI. Clients like attractive people, and what clients want, owners provide. Doesn't matter what business you are in. Just dress modestly if you are concerned about this.

That's the thing, above a certain percentile in terms of attractiveness, most of the battle is how you take care of yourself.


I don't agree. I actually think that it's above a certain percentile but below a certain other percentile. I mean, mostly in the 5-8 range - that's where proper care has a lot of purchase. Which is why law school girls tend, in my view, actually to be more attractive than the average female, even of their age. They tend to take care of themselves. However, it's incredibly rare to see someone in law who has been gifted with real actual beauty (9-10 range).

But maybe this speaks to my aesthetics and my preferences.

And I agree that if Megan Fox were in BP tinychat people would be fapping away. That doesn't necessarily mean the widespread plaudits for her good looks are deserved.


I agree with this. The vast majority of my female classmates are in good shape, and many dress with care too. They definitely tend to take care of themselves more so than the average person.

Also, lots of them are rather cute. I don't know where all this law-school-girls-are-unattractive meme comes from, actually. It is not at all correct in my experience.

The majority of decision-makers at law firms are men. Men will be nice to and do nice things for pretty girls. This is true even if the man doesn't expect anything in return. You may encounter some jealous females, but, overall, being attractive is always a positive.

Sounds like I'll be spending a lot of time hitting on undergrads in the student center and cafeteria. And spending a lot of time in questionable bars trying to buy girls drinks.

I very much agree with this. Big boo-hoo-hoo to people who complain about 'burdens' of being attractive. Attractiveness is always an asset, even if it does - like any other asset, really - come with liabilities.

If it hasn't been mentioned, a must read on this topic is the newly released book "the beauty bias.". Its like the "beauty myth" but this one is aimed specifically at law. Its written by a former head honcho of the ABA or something like that.

Edit: After reading through the 4 pages of nothing but Megan Fox I realize this thread is so off-topic that my post came in like the 99 year old grandmother who chimes in and gets the joke an hour later. Sorry. I was actually hoping this thread would be discussing this issue. I recently did research for my college journal on gender about how women (as we all know) make less than men in all fields, but that when comparing women's salaries there is a huge discrepancy based on appearance. The law is no different, I found stats on the huge pay discrepancy between women and men lawyers in similar sectors. If anyone is interested PM me or whatever.

I firmly believe that everyone - regardless of gender - should take steps to improve his or her physical appearance. Lose some weight if you need to. Exercise. Get a decent haircut. Make sure your clothes are stylish (not necessarily trendy). Don't gnaw your fingernails. Don't have unusual facial hair. Go easy on the hair product. Go easy on the makeup. Get a reasonable amount of sun. If you wear glasses, don't try to be too cheap with your frames.

You don't have to be rich to look your best.

This is decent advice. With respect to glasses, I detest the douches that wear the Dolce & Gabanna frames with the ghetto fabulous D&G logo on the temples (rhinestone or large font, take your pick). I wear a pair of Bvlgari frames that cost about 75% of a SA's paycheck after taxes but the frames are very subtle and the Bvlgari brand name does not show. Also, a few years ago a SA showed up on his first day with the "Perry Ellis" label still sewn on his sleeve (which I noted was irregular because that sleeve was longer than the other). Don't be a douche, remove the label.

Attractivness helps a lot, but so does being really smart and competent in your field, which always trumps looks. How attractive was Einstein? Or Yo-Yo Ma? Clarence Darrow? Bill Gates? Sarah Jessica Parker? (ok just kidding on that one)

Make an effort to look good, but not to a point that it interferes with you being good at what you do.

I'd rank all of those people above horse-face.
