Also missing from the restaurant list: Piccolo Mondo, a pretty good, cheap italian place across the street from SB.

For all the current students: Do I need to bring my car? Are there any gocery stores within walking/bus distance?
You don't need a car, and plenty of people live without one. But if you have a car and have the means to bring it, I highly recommend you do.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if the LRW curve is different than the curve we have for our normal 1L classes? We may have discussed this before, but I don't remember.
We've never gotten a straight answer on this, but the strong suspicion is yes.

Reminder: It is better to ask questions in this thread:

This thread is of considerable interest to me:
Northwestern Campus is in the Gold Coast, and so is quite safe.
As for specific neighborhoods for UChicago, you won't have any trouble figuring it out. Don't go too far south or west, and you'll be fine. 90% of the 1Ls who live in Hyde Park live in University Housing, the Regents apartment tower, or the New Grad dormitory; all of those are perfectly safe options. As a rough box, focus on north of 60th, east of Cottage Grove, and south of 47th.

If these latest shootings weren't near the campus I would think these shootings certainly satisfy the close criteria.
"The last time a student died as a result of violent crime on or near the campus was in July 1977, officials said."
Chicago is a violent city with a lot of crime. Fortunately, this rarely affects students. That is why the University totally flipped out after it happened. If you walk around the block that the law school is on, you will see a minimum of two cop cars 24/7 now.
Although I do appreciate the link in the OP. As I was driving down the freeway last night, it seemed there were a TON of people pulled over for what looked like unusually serious stops (I saw people lined up outside of cars with their hands on their heads). I was wondering what was up.

Dear god I am in so much pain.
For me, softball. I can barely stand.

If I'm not mistaken, this is what students and employers are told:
No, it is higher than that. The rumor I heard my 1L year was 179.6, but I now believe it is closer to at least 179.8. It varies by year though.

Also... MTG, can you give us your scoop on Levmore again? I know you've talked about it previously, but I leave that class more and more confused every day. I thought you had said previously that at the end of the day he only wants us to know the black letter law and be conversant in his "themes."
Use what the prof taught you on the exam. Unless Gersen has changed his course up significantly, you probably shouldn't be applying Levmore's themes to Gersen's half of the exam.
