how about taking a few classes at other departments. Linguistic and public health has a high female ratio and it would be like shooting fish in a barrel. You would improve our changes dramatically.

Nice suggestion! I've been studying at the technical university and can confess that the toughest task is to date not a glamourous chick from a linguistic or a management department, but a bluestocking from a tech dept. In these places there is at least 1:50 female/male ratio so even the most 'moderate' girl would have a self-conceit of Paris Hilton^3

You want a free profile evaluation for potential dates? Don't be shy, just post your profile and I will give you the perfect match.

Hey, I set up a friend up with a model and he hasn't complained.

We need to have a 'hot or not' of gmatclub, except no pictures are allowed, only profiles. You decide how sexy the person is based on their GMAT, GPA and work experience. Then the female and male winners, decided by those with the highest overall score, are forced to go on a date, I go along and videotape the whole thing and no matter how incredibly awkward it is we post it online.

Its a cross between The Voice, Hot or Not and Love In The Wild.

Bonus points are awarded if the date results in an epic cultural mismatch, like if the guy is from Singapore and talks with his mouth full for the entire meal while chewing on crunchy embryo eggs (google: balut images) while the girl ends up being vegetarian. Double Bonus points if the guy doesn't pick up the cue and orders extra balut for her too.

Legendary

To let this thread die would be a disjustice to all GMATclub members worldwide!

So, in thinking... best mba relationship? I got it.

2 consultants... why you may ask? Well, dual income (win-win), both traveling so neither gets the whole "you're never around" feeling, time apart = no "get out of my space" feeling Monday-Thursday, and most importantly... both back on the weekends which = win-win-win... win1 = can catch up and have same day off, win2 = dual income so do whatever-the-f-you-want, win3 = ... eh I'll leave win3 out.. but better said... absence makes the eh, heart, grow fonder

I guess I'll be the first to add a data point. I met my girlfriend on my first day in town. From a sample size of one, the odds of meeting someone you'd like to date are pretty good. The secret to increasing your odds is to date OUTSIDE of the b-school.

Didn't read through the whole thread but would have to agree about dating outside the B-school. Just given the percentages of male/female at most schools (70/30, give or take), looking outside the school seems like a good way.
