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.

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? :)

like a moth to a flame my man :P

p.s. i will be running a workshop in Q2'09, for GMAT clubbers looking to step up their game before entering the b school scene. please PM me with your response to two of the following questions (150 word limit on each) so i can tailor the material accordingly.

1.) Please describe your most significant accomplishment as it pertains to your romantic endeavors.

2.) Please describe a time in which you seduced an attractive member of the opposite sex. What characteristics or skills enabled you to do so?

3.) Summarize your relationship experience to date, beginning from high school, and including any one-night stands or other casual encounters.

4.) What's most important to you in a mate and why?

OPTIONAL: If you have never kissed a girl, please explain why and also describe what you think it would be like.


Your name isn't Neil Strauss by chance is it? :)

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.

We might need a new section in the forum.

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.

Picking up girls requires enough talent as it is. If picking up a girl at a top 15 business school becomes as competitive as getting into the school, I'm cruising for chicks at University of Phoenix.

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 :)


Dude I like that 8-)

To comment on some other stuff on this thread:
I can definitely verify the Fuqua Foxes. Been to 5 top 15 schools and Fuqua was the best (its all relative of course)

There is absolutely nothing wrong with dipping into the undergrad pool. NOTHING.

Couple of comments on this: first of all women in BS are in general not very good-looking. There is however a fair amount of shagging going on, but it's not very blatant.

Despite this, a lot of people meet their partners at BS.

If you want to shag birds, your best chance is to go outside the school I reckon. Non-BS American girls are "friendly" enough to avoid you the pain of trying to date a peer - because it is a pain: it's like high school but worse.

Concerning undergrads, if you shag one you won't have any trouble (especially if she's fit), but if you date one it'll be weird, for the very simple reason that she'll never manage to integrate your circle of friends - the difference in maturity is way too big.

PS: I hear a lot of **** happens on welcome week-end (the happiness of the moment I guess)

You guys need to think outside the box, the b-school box. The class ratios of for male:female is low for MBA. There's plenty of undergrad or other grad students. Personally, I think you'd do better at the bigger schools: more fish in the sea ;) I'd stay away from the "nerdier" schools. For example, MIT probably won't be a good bet.

au contraire...my class visit to MIT last week allayed any concerns i had over the school's attractive female representation. i do agree with the bigger school recommendation though -- noticed several showstoppers at HBS...tuck, not so much. i don't remember which one of these schools said they anticipate having over 40% females next year.

The only b-school where I thought the guys were somewhat attractive was Stanford. Any other place, I'm dating undergrads.


i may have to disagree on this one as well. one could make a correlation between ability to network/work well with others and one's charisma (for both men & women). assuming many b-school students have achieved great success in business already, at the very least we can expect a generally confident and articulate student body...which for men is more than 1/2 the battle. (wow does this sound like a critical reasoning problem or what? :P)
