Does anyone know if Irishspring ever found his lady? This post started 4 years ago, so who thinks he is married and has kids?

I am going to say he is probably engaged currently, and did not meet his wife during his MBA.

As a girl with a very long term bf, I'm accepting applications for me to be your wing woman. I have six years experience in the field and a long list of positive recommendations. (Just don't listen to my friend Matt. I saved him from himself and he just can't accept it.)

Though given the survival rates of LTRs in b-school I may be considering the talent by the end of the first Thanksgiving after all!

From my visits:
Stanford: Normal attractive. Very CA type. You know what I mean. Sandals. I mean sandals.
Berkeley: See above, but also the whole Berkeley vibe.
Wharton: It was cold and everyone was super bundled up. I don't remember anyone making much of an impression one way or another.
Kellogg: Relatively attractive, but I remember noticing the girls were attractive more than I do the guys.
Tuck: Decent. Fairly standard.
Darden: Gorgeous. Seriously. Both times I visited I remember thinking how oddly, incredibly attractive the dudes were. And the girls? Average. Which means our odds are fantastic. Yay women!

So if your boyfriend was smart, he'd send a letter to the Darden adcom clarifying that your "work experience" is actually dealing crack outside the local 7-11 to get you a ding.

Actually, he's starting at HBS in August, so I think he'll be fine either way.


Judging by this, he'll have a solid selection: http://www.harbus.org/2013/harvard-business-schools-most-eligible/

Now that I've got a few school visits under my belt, I'll resurrect this post and contribute for the girls.

Duke: I was amazed at the pool of attractive guys at Duke. They far surpassed the other schools.
HBS: simply due to the sheer size of the program, the odds are in your favor for finding a few hot guys.
Stanford: Ehh, decent
Tuck: Great campus, but incredibly disappointing in the hottie department.

Ah, just found this thread and figured out why you picked HBS over Stanford! :love

The odds for me are 0 because I have not been admitted anywhere.

One step at a time, my friend.

You don't need to be a student to loiter outside and try to chat up B school ladies as they go to their McKinsey interviews. :lol:

Additionally, the area around Duke is shady. Ur odds improvce significantly as u might have to walk the "foxes" back home late in the evenings.

Your odds would be best if you got into Duke. The Fuqua Foxes are by far the best looking women at any top b-schools that I've visited. They also know how to party, meaning that they will...I think I've made my point.

PS The law school is right next door, which is another gold mine of its own.

I can vouch for the Fuqua Foxes. I saw a few hotties and I was there only for a few hours on a Saturday.

odds are fair that your dating life will be somewhat active as a b-school student, but it will come at the cost of something else (prepping for interviews, studying for classes, networking with classmates). i think if you're willing to sacrifice other things, it could definitely happen.
