Also, as demonstrated by UG campus career fairs, hot women can put on glasses to semi-conceal their hotness and convey more gravitas. Some hot chicks, however, cannot conceal a mousy voice or valley girl dialect. That would be more trouble than simply looking hot.

And of course, saying "like" as every third word that comes out of your mouth doesn't help, either.

i love it what fatduck shows up.

also, i think ppl can't help but be nicer to ppl they think are good looking.. regardless of sexual orientation or interest.

for women, i think the opposite is true. personally, when i see a hot chick who knows she is hot, that bitch is getting the evil eye until she proves she is cool, or DTF.

did you mean can't instead of can?

I did. I type too fast for my brain sometimes. Also, I'm hot, cool and DTF, so whats up? ;) am i hired??

Typical. It must be because I'm so good looking.

I was implying that not all girls who use like so liberally should be referred to as valley girls.

I think my appearance has hurt me more than helped tbh. I'm short, skinny, & blonde-- not model gorgeous by any stretch but above average. In my experience, if a woman is doing the hiring my looks never help and sometimes hurt me. If a man is doing the hiring it's 50/50-- half the time it helps and half the time it hurts because sometimes I can tell they instantly do not take me seriously the minute I walk into the room. I literally try and make myself look as plain as possible when I go on interviews now. I'm sure it is different for guys though.

First time I have heard a girl throw out the DTF... awesome.

If you as good looking as Paulina's tar, then it will help... I would think

I remember taking a UGrad business course (at a top business school), in which the professor cited a study and said:

Men: The better looking (and taller) you are, the more likely you are to succeed in the business field.
Women: You are more likely to succeed in business if you are not too ugly and not too pretty.

If you are too pretty, then just don't wear makeup and pull your hair back into a tight ponytail. Then you are office hot, but not discrimination hot.

Why would this be news? Of course there is an attractiveness bias that is prevalent in our society. Sure, there are some things that you can't help, but everything that is in your control (i.e. losing weight, teeth whitening, haircuts, putting on makeup etc.) should be a priority. Not over grades or law review, but these things should be prioritized somewhere after working on interpersonal skills and before mindlessly chatting on internet forums. :wink:

I don't think that is evidence that more attractive women get better offers as much as someone at Cardozo is really tired of all the fucking fatties trampling around the law building.

Was this not relevant? Just sayin that OP, who claims to be "short, skinny, & blonde-- not model gorgeous by any stretch but above average" might not be the underdog.

LOL. While Cardozo couldn't weed out the fatties/ ugly chicks through their law school application process, law firms sure can.
