This thread should immediately be renamed "the Great Chicago Bar Tour"...

And yes, I will be there.

I'm here already.  Bored with nothing to do until tomorrow.  Any current students out there that can tell me where the Bar Review is, or whether I should even go?  Any visiting people who want to meet up/go out?

I was thoroughly disappointed with the bar scene actually...

I actually had a great time.  The students there were very friendly.

I went to a bar with mostly law students actually, the admits were not overly social on Friday night.

It was my first ASD, so my question is did the students there represent what the admitted students looked like at other ASWs?  Did anyone notice the age difference? 

The students are very intelligent (exactly what you would expect at a T14 school).  A huge plus I have to give NU is the laid-back culture;  the students had very little pressure to compete with each other and seemed to really enjoy each other's company.  I didn't meet any discernible gunners this weekend.

The age difference wasn't bad among the admits - quite a few people actually came straight from undergrad.  However, you can notice the mature crowd when you look at some of the 2Ls and 3Ls; they are definitely look the part of mid-twenties(I'm 23 myself).
