Thanks for the info!
I, too, am seriously considering DePaul. I live in New York now and I miss Chicago alot, especially on days like today when I have to write my rent check.
I think if you perfom at DePaul, the opportunities in Chicago will be there, and from Chicago you can transfer laterally or jump into a business pretty easily. I know that the law school is in a downtown "office building" and I just wanted to make sure that the law school is not a dark, emotionless place. I think your post has helped to put that fear to rest. I have already been corresponding with a professor and he seems great. Hopefully I'll see you in the fall, thanks again.
