Three years for the MA. I want it for my own edification and just to be unique and different. I don't expect it to have an impact on my law practice.

Carry on.

(I'm reading every post by the way and it is all really helpful!)

ETA: I'm an 0L, but I'm extremely skeptical of people making judgments about the culture of schools they haven't attended based entirely on ASW impressions + anecdotes. Penn wouldn't be a terrible choice because of its placement, but no one on this board who actually goes to Chicago would describe it the way Veyron is doing.

Its impossible to simultaneously attend two schools at once. OP asked me what I felt the differences were when I was applying. Maybe the reality of Chicago is very different, IDK. I can only speak with authority as to Penn obviously but I had a very strong preference based on the limited information that I had as an applicant.

^^^ Right. Which is fine, I'm just saying OP needs to take your opinion of Chi's culture with a grain of salt.
