Naturally, we were curious to see if having a graduate degree has any correlation to a member’s attractiveness and preferences.
We looked at over 20 million matches and here’s what we found. Right off the bat you’ll probably notice that for men, professional degrees (i.e., MD, MBA, JD) garner a higher percentage of likes than those with more general graduate degrees (i.e., Ph D, Master’s).
The words used in the last three sections of the profile are what we used for this study.) I love how diverse the trending words for the bagels with their master’s degrees are.
In fact, having a Ph D or master’s seems to have no impact on men’s popularity at all!
And it’s pretty clear that those professional degree holders know what’s up — they PASS on their Bagels the most frequently.
I’ve been on the League for months, and I never knew there was a real person behind “the Concierge” who’s listed among my matches, but there is.
Bradford says there’s a team of about 10 League employees powering these profiles. Bradford says she hasn’t seen any “crazy gender ratios thrown off or one city where no one’s educated on one side and not the other.” But Atlanta is probably “the most unbalanced community,” she says, because there are a lot more educated women than men.
So essentially ladies, all of those extra years of school you endured were totally useless as far as your dating life is concerned. Naturally, a woman with a Ph D would be significantly older than a recent undergrad graduate, and you know how men love younger women — I’m totally rolling my eyes right now.
