Champaign is a nice Big-10 college town, anyone who argues otherwise knows nothing. As much as I'm forced as a UIowa student to troll against UI-UC, it's an awesome school with intelligent undergrads and grads and a beautiful campus.
UIUC's campus may be one of the ugliest around. Not trying to troll here, but you will find very few people who claim there is anything beautiful about Chambana. It may be a great place for some people to go, but pretty it is not.
Can't believe that you are still so bitter about not being admitted to UIUC.
To Rager, I am a 3L here. I love the school, like the town. The professors are top notch and you can actually meet with them when you want to. My classmates are friendly and come from all over the country. Most of us are going to Chicago, but it is a huge legal market and a great city. I do have friends that are going to DC, NYC and Houston. I have had offers in other cities, but I wanted to be in Chicago after graduation.
