Hookup Culture

Postby papajohns » Wed Mar 01, 2017 9:42 pm

International student here (0L) from a culturally conservative country.
I did do my undergrad in the U.S. so I have some sense of the "hookup culture"
but I'm dying to learn more about how single U.S. law students bang it all out in the midst of all that stress/studying.

Given how law school students (all across the world), as the brainy/nerd type, aren't always the most sociable or attractive people (including myself here), how does it all work out? I've heard from several 1L students about all that crazy dirty sex that goes on at "bar reviews" but are they really true?

My guess is that law schools are just like anywhere else and just as it is anywhere else, less than 10% of the guys will be copulating with most of the females (the alphas). But how do you smart-but-socially-awkward 90% deal with the dating game? Are you on Tinder all the time? (not mocking, as I'm on it also, but not all the time).

Unfortunately, I''m one of those nerds/geeks who spent much of his youth/college year studying and hasn't had much success in the dating game, but I'd really like to change that.

On that note.... Do U.S. law students generally date each other? Do they interact/hang out with undergrads? Or is that frowned upon? Do you even have time to go on dates? How often do you enjoy copulation? How easy is it to get laid in U.S. law school? Obviously, if I have to ask this question, then that means it won't be easy for me, but given how U.S. female law school students are also a self-selecting group.... I wonder if it might be different.

Any info. about the U.S. law school hookup culture would be appreciated! Thanks.

Not that effective of a solution, speaking from personal experience.

Posting for the quote "how often do you enjoy copulation." Classic.

The rankings are a pretty good guide. When people here talk about a law school's "prestige," this is pretty much what they're talking about.

Somewhere between 70 and 90% of the time.

That's why they call it lay prestige.

Although your OP isn't deserving of a serious answer, I'll try to provide one. If you had trouble with women in college you will have similar problems in law school. Law school tends to have a lot more married people and people in long term relationships than undergrad so there will be fewer single people.

Socially, law school is also a lot more like high school than college. Your social circle 1L year will largely be limited to your section and there will probably be one to three couples formed in your section.

You'll be able to get it in. My friend who is at the top of his class was able to continue hooking up with three different girls at the same time for a few months before he picked one. There are actually a lot of really cute girls that go to law schools. Some reason we just think everyone will be geeky and only care about grades but naw. There are a variety of people.
