Do those “not a great idea” dates scare classmates away?
Early last year, Tally users attempted to define the nebulous concept but failed to add much clarity. Two-thirds of MBA2 respondents believe 60 % of the GSB community is in a relationship vs. Confirming this ticking clock perception as the second year winds down, an MBA2 laments, “Last fall, you had FOMO if you were in a relationship.From a 49% singledom rate upon entry for current MBA2s, how many of those classmates are left to “hit us up” after graduation? Now, you have FOMO if you’re not.” As mentioned before, there are, by one count, 18 newly formed relationships within the MBA2 class since Colombia.Check Mates encourages you to look through our catalog of photos and discuss the individuals who interest you.By using our own, current - true to life - photos of each member, we seek to ensure that you won't be disappointed.For some of the men of the GSB, though, looks might not even be table stakes.

” is more complex than these outsiders might imagine. In a survey of 334 GSB students — primarily then-MBA1s — last year on the now defunct polling app Tally, half were not in serious relationships. Last year on Tally, a user posed the question, “Is it a much better deal for a GSB woman to date a GSB man than the other way around?
First things first: is there even anyone to date at the GSB? Accounting for relationship status upon entry, the numbers remain skewed, with three-quarters of women identifying as single or “sort of” in a relationship upon entry seeking a partner vs. (GSB man can get younger and hotter, women not so much).” Of 103 respondents, 54% agreed that women get a better deal. Alright, so maybe the women of the GSB are at a disadvantage when it comes to finding a partner.
