Haha, I am picturing a middle-aged guy showing up at the frat house with a case of Natty light in one hand and a funnel in the other wearing the b-school sweatshirt. Awesome.

Rule 1: This chart always, always applies:

http://cuzoogle.files.wordpress.com/200 ... scale1.gif

Rule 2: Rule 1 applies double if you're wanting to dip into the UG pool. Take this from a 27 y/o who has 2 20-something sisters with many friends. Not saying you(or I) shouldn't, just saying it applies.

Rule 3: I highly disagree with the poster saying all the foxes will be snapped up on welcome weekend. That's not the mindset to take. You can be a guy who wants to meet his spouse, just don't be 'that guy'.

Yes, you're talking about Barney Stinson's crazy/ hot scale. According to the scale, a girl is allowed to be crazy, as long as she is equally hot. She must be rated above the Vickie Mendoza diagonal.

I've actually wondered the same thing. I wouldn't go as far as to say that I'm looking to get married, but I would definitely like to meet a girl who's really smart. I'm not sure what the availability of cute smart girls is at top-tier b-schools, but what about other schools on campus, like law school, med school, etc? Maybe it would be a good idea to date someone who's also going to have a really demanding career 2-3 years post-graduation.

Is there a website out there that ranks B-Schools by who has the hottest girls? :)

Here's a little gem I read about months ago, and have actually used (mixed results, but always fun).

The best three-line opener I've ever seen.

The Apocalypse Opener
1) You having a good time?
* She replies (yes, no, whatever)
2) What are you doing after this?
* She replies (who cares what she says)
3) You wanna go home with me?
*** You absolutley must ask this question as if you're asking what the weather's like. Don't say it jokingly, awkwardly, or creepy.***

So you're thinking, there isn't a chance in hell that actually works, but it does and I'll tell you why. If the girl is an uptight loser, she's going to be pissed off which is good... saves you from wasting your time on her. If the girl the girl is easy and looking to get some, she'll take you up on it right away. Here's what's most likely to happen though: The girl has a sense of humor and will admire your confidence. She doesn't want to feel like a slut, so don't treat her like one. If she continues the conversation with you, she's interested and already knows your intentions. Buy her a couple drinks and close the deal. Keep in mind, no opener will do everything for you, you've gotta have a good end-game too.

If a girl turns you down, just use Mystery's line: "I didn't say you could, I just asked if you wanted to." Teasing can go a long way :)

Here's my absolute favorite bar game. I have actually used this as an opener before and it worked, but I wouldn't recommend it. There's something suspicious about a random person asking you to play a game. If you use this on a girl, even if she isn't the one you're interested in, make sure you involve her friends to make sure she's answering right/wrong. It will increase the chances of her friends accepting you. I always bet a drink. Having a girl buy the first drink after losing to me in a game always sets the right tone :)

At the risk of being the guy who knows a little 'too much' about this stuff, Ross Jeffries is the guy whose stuff would work more in a Bschool setting. In summary, don't ask them out first thing, don't treat them special, don't go out of your way. The strategy towards your cute Bschool co-eds, espec those you have classes with, is totally different than what you need to use in a bar. You're going to get face time no matter what, no need to try for it. Be the mysterious guy who they happen to bump into at happy hour, not the guy who's telling them his life story the first day.

I totally agree...it's probably no coincidence that I always seem to meet girls when I don't have time for them.

Agreed. If everyone spent the amount of time on it as they did their GMAT/applications, the B school world would be a much better place.
