June. I posted this already, but I'll post it again: --LinkRemoved--. Those are the letters Chicago sent to incoming students last year. I would assume it'll be the same this year.
Also, I've been trying to decide whether to live in Hyde Park or up north. I found this website (http://www.peekacity.com) where you can type in an address and find all the amenities (grocery stores, banks, parks, etc.) nearby. After looking in Hyde Park, I decided I definitely want to live up north.
i've been trying to decide this too. i'm from chicago so if it were solely up to me i'd live in lincoln park or wrigleyville since I don't mind commuting but my instinct tells me that i should live in hyde park for the first year. you're right though, the places to live up north are FAR superior and better value when compared with the places in hyde park.
What are the benefits of living in Hyde Park? Everyone says that they recommend it, but no one really says why. Is it because you're going to be going back and forth between your apartment and school a lot? Is it because people party in their apartments in HP?
I'd love to live up north, but I think I'll be in Hyde Park for 1L at least.
I'm not planning on going back and forth between home and school too much, but I'm guessing I'll be so busy at school that commuting for an hour each way (I figure it would be something like that, door to door) on the train or bus doesn't seem to make sense. It would also be pretty nice to be able to go home and have dinner with my SO and still head back to school in the evening if I needed to.
I also thought when half of the class lives at Regents, living up north would mean missing out on a lot of social stuff.
