Chicago has seen a brutal winter. Do people seem to think this is normal? I'm from Oklahoma and used to being in the mid-30's during winter's clutch. How difficult is it to adapt to the weather? Is it realistic to expect a nice apartment for less than 1200 a month, in a nice part of town? how is the "married" housing they claim to have, and is it competitive to get?
Aside from rank, what are the marked advantages (if any) of attending Northwestern over UChicago? I've been admitted to both, but sometimes get a feel that Northwestern has the more practical approach when it comes to instruction and practice while in law school.
Do you think someone coming to NU straight out of undergrad would make someone feel uncomfortable in the environoment of the school? Does an "older" crowd make it less of a "let's make relationships and be friends while we're going through this" type of place or is it more of a "I have to go home to my husband and kids" feel? I honestly wasn't expecting to get in (because I have no FT work experience) and now I feel as though I'll be the new college grad who feels a little out-of-place.
To the OP: I'm basically your numbers twin, except I have a lower GPA, a (slightly) higher LSAT and I'm not a URM. Should I be as pessimistic as I am about my chances?
Yeah, a little WE, but not after school. I took a break for a while in between being a bad college student. It really baffles me how they are going to look at my transcript and not just assume I'm schizo/bipolar/retarded.I'm about to have an interview. What should I say?
