The "more enjoyable experience thing" is a joke, right? HLS has an objectively more enjoyable experience?
UChi LRAP is irrelevant if one has a Rubenstein.
Regarding how enjoyable the experience is, I have heard the difference in stress due to grading systems is huge. Certainly, Harvard has better facilities and probably more interesting students (not an attempt to reinforce the Chicago students stereotype). Also, Boston, and Cambridge in particular, is a better place to live than Hyde Park, or so most people say. So, "objectively better"? Only in the sense that it is true for most people.
Meh. You seemed to have strayed away from HLS v. Ruby to be talking generally about the awesome benefits of HLS over CCN as a whole.
Additional stress from grading seems impossible to quantify. Would I be less stressed worrying about HPs than about 180+ grades? I have no idea. I'm sure current HLS students will say that they can't imagine how much more stressful school would be with grades, but we really can say for sure. Even for people who have transferred from a school with grades to HLS, comparing 1L at their old school to 2L is really apples to oranges.
I'll agree that HP isn't a huge selling point, but it isn't too bad. After 1L most people live in the city, and Chicago v. Boston is really just a question of preference.
Why are you entertaining this guy. His arguments are silly. We get it he loves harvard but talking about making a 200k decision because he thinks Cambridge is better than Hyde Park.
