Do LS students date as much as one did in undergrad??

Postby fumagalli » Fri Jun 17, 2011 1:01 pm

I'm curious about how relationships work out in Law school.
(0L here)

I mean, everyone would be so much busy (especially during 1L), but do people still date as much as they did in undergrad?

Or is it actually pretty rare to see law school couples?

Do you even have time to date?

Does getting raped by exams count as dating, or do they have to buy you dinner first?

They do this weird thing where they date each other, but refuse to tell anyone, and refuse to call it dating. They call it friends with benefits, despite it being exclusive. It's pretty retarded. It's what happens when you take a bunch of nerds and place them in a place with no social structure.

"We are just having sex, no big deal. But you can't fuck anyone else either."

It's a flame, and they are really just dating.

I mean I guess it retains the I don't have to put in any effort and can just hit her up for sex whenever nature but exclusive fuck buddies has to be one of the dumbest concepts I've ever come across. If I cant have sex with anyone else, then shes attached. And if she's attached I have to deal with drama. Probably during finals.

My experience is that everyone is practically married and it's disgusting.

Is this for real? Or just something you experienced personally.
I'm just curious cuz I think law school would be my last chance to meet someone for a long term relationship.
Meeting someone new just seems unlikely ones you start working.(Especially if you get into BigLaw)

It seems to be the women who propagate this, so as long as you don't pull it, you should be okay. A couple at my school is already engaged.

If you have to ask, you'll never know.

But in seriousness, there's no reason you can't date in law school. It's almost necessary to keep your mind off your terrible 1L year.

And yes, this happens a lot. There are a surprising # of virgins in law school who don't understand how relationships work. It's also a strange mix of people -- one half of whom think they are in "professional" school and can't appear slutty and the other half of whom think law school is college 2.0.

My advice: go talk to the attractive girls before they a) gain 20 pounds in law school and b) shack up with some nerd they think will get a good job.

This.

Law school is people who date sporadically and try/pretend to keep it on the DL, plus married/almost-married couples.

That said, there are also people who are ostensibly not dating and not exclusive where the girl just fumes silently and randomly blows up at the guy for having sex with someone else.

To clarify for the engineering school grads among us, bolded is exactly like normal UGs.

I don't think I could bear to poast there - Dave's disdain and disappointment for my chosen lifestyle would be too painful.

I don't post but I head there everyone once in a while to see if there are any hilarious threads. It's 90% shit, but 10% of its pretty funny.

You don't have time or money to go on dates. People usually just hook up once in a while, and try not to let anyone know about it even though everyone finds out anyway. It's a rumor mill.

Yep. The firm threads usually have more useful info than TLS, even if the entire thread is mostly SPS, but I got sucked into lurking even when I don't need info b/c of the occasional genius flames.

Firm threads have had a pretty steep decline in value in the last two years on Xo. Too many of them are associates and have no clue about OCI anymore. If you ask for help you get 1/3 decent advice that you could get on TLS, 1/3 Flame, and 1/3 retarded advice. They'll say shit like you need to be top 20% at Cornell to have ANY shot at big law. It's retarded.

I used to think their opinion of TLS was too harsh. Because people on TLS constantly post that very few non t14 get big law, and that even in the t14 its about 50/50. And Xo made it seem like we thought the market was great.

However, I've noticed on several threads a large number of posters calling "flame" at unemployed T14 grads. Or being shocked that t14 grads are working doc review. It's this weird congnative dissonance where TSLers can quote NLJ250 data, but really don't consider that a lot t14 people really fuck up their careers.

There is plenty of time and money to go on dates. It's just that people in LS are retarded.
