I think as long as you stay NEAR UChicago you are fine.  No, I'm not paranoid and I didn't take offense to your question.  I understand your concern as most people are used to the suburbs and underestimate the safety of city life.  I live in a neighborhood that is going through "gentrification" so it's somewhere in between.  How dangerous is dangerous?  Like you said, that varies on the person.

Chicago is a town with MANY neighborhoods and as long as you're careful, you'll be fine (even in the southside).  Also, the boundaries of neighborhoods aren't that defined anymore.  If you've never been here before or know little about Chicago there are neighborhood guides in bookstores.  Craigslist is a good place to look for apartments.  You asked for suggestions/opinions and I gave them to you...Best of luck!

Oh, and if you move in the summer make sure you check out all the festivals. 8)

If Denver accepts me in August, I'm definately buying the pass.  Thanks for the info, Cesco.
Where is everyong going to live?  On campus?  What neighborhoods?
I'll be in Denver in July but most of my time will be spent studying/convincing the professors to pass me.

I love to leech....every time I go home I end up with a bag of food from my parent's pantry... ;D

So if your from Chicago you can recommend area to live in, right???  I found a few places in Hyde Park that are within my price range.

I don't know what your price range is but I'd be very careful about Hyde Park (it can be a bit dangerous).
Since DePaul is right in the loop and very easy to get to via the EL, your options are limitless. 
Some places I would suggest are Lincon Park (fun, trendy but it can be a bit pricey) and Wicker Park (artsy, fun neighborhood, reasonably priced).

Would have liked to stay here but nobody wanted me...although Kent is still pending. :(
Chicago is a really fun city with a lot to do (and it doesn't rain as much as Seattle).

There are A LOT of CHEAP housing in Bloomington.  Even if you went in late July/August, you shouldn't have a problem finding a place.  Good luck!

I applied there PT and got rejected (well deserved actually).

I used to work by CUA...it's a pretty sketchy neighborhood but I think the campus is fine.  I definately wouldn't live in the neighborhood but the metro stops right by campus so it shouldnn't a problem getting to school.  Also, DC is a very energetic city with a lot to do.

CUA is a great school for the law and religion program.  I don't think it's too hard getting a job in the DC area with a degree from Catholic (even with so many law schools nearby).

the, oh we just had a long day of skiing lets sit in the hottub and have a beer mode...

You have a hottub??  You should definitely come to DU!!  ;D

just kidding, you are right - same concept as going to the beach all day and then trying to study.


I 2nd that.  :P  All kidding aside, I hope Denver offers you some $$$.
I actually learned to ski in Vermont too.  Skiing out west is definately MUCH better.

How long does RW film?  In a way I think it'll be cool but I hope it's not too distracting for me this summer. 

Yea, where is everyone living?  I know nothing about Denver and its neighborhoods.

And to those in TX - let us know how the dinner goes.

I was originally waitlisted so I sort of "stalked" the admissions office - the poeple there, specifically the AD, are wonderful.  Very helpful and never made me feel like I was being a pest (which I was).

Haha, at least you got in!!  But I agree, the admissions office is very friendly and promt.  They always answered/returned my calls/emails in such a way that made me feel comfortable contacting them.

Any good neighborhoods to live in?

Free dinner in Texas huh?  I guess there are more perks of going to DU than skiing.

Yea, that's what I hear.  I'm really looking forward to Denver and I hope the skiing doesn't tempt me too much.

Why is it called DU though?  Shouldn't it be UD?  :-\

I'm looking forward to getting aquainted with Denver this summer.  I've fallen in love with the place the moment they offered me a conditional acceptance...my numbers scream T4.
