Sorry your friend is lame and didn't show you a good time, but there are plenty of people who like to have fun at UChi, just like there are plenty of super nerdy UVA law students. Plus there are actually fun things to do in Chicago. The same kinds of students are choosing between the same top law schools - you're not going to have a complete blast at one and be miserable at another.
You must go to Chicago lol
The demographic of people is noticeably different, and I think this is partially from self selection. I think my friend is a pretty cool guy (lmao, of course right). We did go to parties and stuff, I met a ton of people so that was good and everyone is very nice, no doubt about that. Everyone just seemed wound up a little tighter. I got more of a gunnerish vibe there, but maybe it was just my experience and others feel differently. But, again, being known as the one school where "fun goes to die" has to come from somewhere.... right?
All I am saying is make sure you visit both. I think some people dont think it is as important as it is
