I've been accepted to Marquette, but I'm leaning toward going elsewhere.

I'm currently a student at a liberal arts college in Milwaukee, so if you have any questions about the city, let me know.

I applied there because of their sports law program (ideally I would like to be an athletic director some day), but I also feel like I could get to the same place with a degree from somewhere else without the sports law focus. My only impression of Milwaukee is Summerfest about three years ago and watching the Cubs lose at Miller Park in '06.


My only comment on your post is that you should not overlook the potential connections that a well-established sports law program could supply for you.

And I second the request for additional comments on the school in general. My main question is, are 1Lers miserable? I recognize that is a stupid question because of course they are to some degree but I am hoping it is a school that its students are relatively happy to be attending.

I am highly considerring attending Marquette because of the Sports Law Program. I will be at the admitted students day on April 5th and look forward to learning and seeing the school. Right now, it looks as if I will be there next fall. Just waiting on a few of my California schools (my home state that might get a home field advantage if accepted.)

The area directly around Marquette is sort of a ghetto area. There are some good, expensive apartments nearby, but those tend to be above restuarants, bars, etc. I would consider getting an apartment a little further downtown and commuting via bus. I go to UW-Milwaukee, so I don't have a ton of firsthand knowledge about Marquette, but I have friends who go there, so I think it's best if you are a law student to live downtown.

There is quite a bit of safe housing in the Marquette area. Kind of pricey, but so is the rest of downtown.

A buddy lives in The Loft or whatever (he's in UG) and that's pretty nice. It's right on the border of safe/unsafe areas, but he hasn't had any problems in 2+ years.

2040 Lofts? I have scheduled a visit for that place. Any word on how loud that place is?

I'll find out and get back to you. I think it's kind of pricey (for Milwaukee), but it's gorgeous in the inside.

From what my friend said, it's not too bad. I've been in there a few times, and never once was it loud. In fact, I'm not sure I ever really heard anything or anyone...

The biggest thing I can say:

Don't rent anything owned/managed by Katz properties. Quite possibly the worst landlords ever. I'm withholding my rent for April, May and June (remainder of my lease) to force them to bring me to court so that I can try to shred them for some of the crap they've pulled.

Edit: Worst landlords ever in regards to a corporation, anyway. I don't mean to compare them to some of the slumlords in Milwaukee, because they certainly aren't that bad.

Is there a chance that I'll be able to rent a house? It looks like I'll be at Marquette in the fall as well!

Congrats! The next communication on their part came via mail in the form of a comprehensive packet. But I was initially so excited to get the process rolling that I phoned in and expressed my interest in planning a visit. The ASW is April 5th. And yes, they will reimburse flight costs up to $250 and only those that arrive into MKE (main Milwaukee airport). Original receipt required for reimbursement and it will be given to you after receipt of your second deposit due in July (1st deposit due by April 15th)

Congrats again.....see ya in Milwaukee!

While you're in Milwaukee, try to make time to visit our kick ass Art Museum! I'm not a big art fan, but it really is a treat! Also, if anyone has questions about hotels I would be more than happy to answer them!

How can you even mention that flopping cry babies name when you have a picture of Devin Harris as your picture? "Fall 7 times, get up 8...except when his team isn't very good and he doesn't feel like playing any more, or when he has to get wheeled off the court crying like a baby"

I understand Devin Harris isn't a Maverick anymore, but he was still a part of the team 2 years ago during that travesty.

*As you can see, that is still a sore spot for some Maverick fans.*

PS: I applied and was accepted to Marquette as well. I was interested in their sports law program. Unfortunately, coming from Texas, I think I've decided that it is just too cold when I've got a couple warmer options on the table. It sounds like a really good school though, especially some of the recent large donations that they have received and the new law building coming in a couple years.

I got to UG here. The 2040 lofts are the best place to live but it is on the other end of the campus (~10 blocks from law school) There is good housing available closer to the law school around the Public Library. You can rent a house and it works out to be much cheaper with 3-4 roommates (I pay about 500/month). As for the social life, there are some good bars on water street. The bars on campus are usually filled with UG students.

PM me if u need any specific info about the area.

I just got in with some money and was wondering if there were any current Marquette Law students out there on TLS!

If so can you tell me about the atmosphere at Marquette? How about WI? Also how flexible is the University with giving more $ in scholarships?

THANKS!
