I am 45 years old and am applying to the part-time program at Marquette for the fall 2005 semester; thinking about specializing in health law. I went there as an undergraduate and have enjoyed living in Milwaukee. The downtown area is quickly coming back with new apartment developments, restaurants, stores, etc.. The area around Marquette is OK, but crime is still occasionally a problem. (Although, I think itís still safer than New Orleans--been there a few times). You have to get used to the winters here but in the last decade, itís been much warmer and bearable. Marquette law school has a great reputation around the Milwaukee and Chicago region. Hope this little bit of information helps.
