We Can Study, But Can We Strut?

Before we all applied to Penn, we looked at those college guide books that, among other ratings, graded the looks of women on campus. I don't remember exactly what the score was, but it was a grade I certainly had never seen previously (which is why I then got into Penn). And while the women here bear the brunt of the beauty-bashing, let's be honest: the Quaker men also lack those state school good looks. APAHW and the UMC must have missed this fact, wanting us to forgo library carrels for the catwalk in honor of its annual fashion show.

But what do we know? They say beauty is skin deep and confidence is everything, so go forth you wannabe Betties and Baldwins -- try outs are on Monday and Tuesday.
