Dude, chill out. Why don't you actually visit the school at ASW, rather than deciding on the basis of internet hearsay?
This website is not representative of Chicago. Period. If you visited, you would see that it's full of normal, fun-loving people with good employment prospects. Are there a few intense people such as myself? Yes. But you're misguided and/or naive if you think that these people don't exist at NYU or CLS in equal measure. I almost went to one of those schools.
Finally, for the record, Dean Levmore is hilarious, but he does alienate people sometime with his wacky, frank sense of humor. Just because someone on TLS said that Dean Levmore is a "jackass dean" doesn't mean it's true. If you actually met Dean Levmore, which you will at ASW, you would realize that he's a funny guy whose sarcasm comes across in the wrong way sometimes.
I'm all for offensive humor, but if the story quoted on TLS was true it was pretty harsh. Which is why I'm having a tough time believing it, though.
