Should I shave my mustache before law school starts??

Postby jayman12 » Mon Apr 08, 2013 3:43 pm

So in my year off between undergrad and law school (this fall) I have grown a pretty long mustache, mostly for fun and laughs. But the truth is I really have grown to like the mustache and can even twirl the ends of it to look like and old-school boxer. Do you think I should get rid of the mustache before law school starts? Would you lend your notes/sit next to a kid with a long mustache? I'm still pretty young whereas the stache is generally more funny than creepy, but I don't wanna ruin my law school experience by being the kid with a long and weird mustache. Advice, thoughts, experiences????

It's a mix of funny and gross, with very little "professional" thrown in.

This isn't even a question - no.

I refuse to vote in such a nonsensical thread.

ETA 0Ls need to relax.

You refuse to vote, but you'll take the time to comment?, interesting.... Isnt this the category where 0L's can ask law students for advice?

Seems like the crowd wants the stache to stay. At the very least It'll make an average white dude like me stand out a bit, and will be a great converation starter at OCI.
