I'm trying to decide between MU, KU, UNL and OU. What are your perceptions on each of these schools relative to MU, particularly KU? What are your thoughts on career services, from what you can tell so far as a 1L? Thanks.

The city is set-up so you can't live real close to campus, so everyone drives. At certain times, the traffic can be real crappy. But now that I know when those times are, it is not really a problem.I've spent four years in Columbia, and I have to strongly disagree with this. I have never had to drive to class, and none of my friends live far enough away from campus to have to drive either. There are plenty of places to live that are less than 10 minutes walking time from the law school.I would recommend you take a look on Craigslist and at the classifieds at themaneater.com (the MU student newspaper's Web site.) East Campus and Downtown have a lot of great options for students that are close enough to not only walk to class but to also walk to bars and restaurants downtown.

I'm only replying b/c I know some people from the other thread were trying to choose between MU and SLU. I'm not trying to say anything negative about MU b/c I think it's a great school, but some things I just wanted to point out:The way the MU divides up classes is really different from SLU. There are 100 more 1Ls at SLU, but the classes have the same number of people--120ish in the biggest classes, 70-80 in the medium ones, 35-40 for Civ Pro (the treat it like homeroom), and 25ish for LRW.SLU only requires you to be a student in good standing to keep your scholarship--I think it's like 2.0. If you're below a certain ranking, they make you take a study strategies class instead of one of the core classes in the spring; you make up the other core class over the summer. They do this to try to keep people from flunking out.At SLU you have Civ Pro, Contracts, and LRW both Spring and Fall semester.
Here is the company that I rent through... www.corporatelake.com This is the ONLY place I can give an actual review on. Brandon Woods place is nice, quite, and has a good rental co. I have friends that live here: http://www.katyplaceapts.com/floor_plans.aspThere is just a couple to look at. If you google like "apartments in Columbia, Mo" you will find all the big apartment complexes. Also craigslist is a way to go.
