There isn't much drinking on, and not a lot of school spirit either, so case sponsored events don't really make up for it. I find that I go shopping or go out to dinner a lot for my "fun." Coventry can be fun, but it gets old. Downtown has some cool places but it's just a hassle to get there. Ohh, but I've started going to Uptown a lot. It's really close to the law school, like right next to Rascal house and it has good drinks (although expensive). But if you just want a place to grab a beer after class, I like it. Usually quiet.
It was sad though, because since I've been so denied a party school existence for undergrad, I was hoping to have a bit more fun in law school. Then I realized I kind of just missed my chance. But, I don't want to do nothing but work in law school. As the saying goes, it makes you go crazy. Anyone else have similar feelings?
Boring is in the eye of the beholder. I went to a massive party school and that gets boring pretty fast. You're not missing that much. I've had as much (if not more) memorable fun just drinking/eating with a group of friends at a random hole in the wall as I have in the most lauded and praised entertainment districts in big cities. I think Cleveland is just very direct and no-nonsense, no-frills. I remember I went to Arizona and me and buddy walked into a bar and all the waitresses were U of A cheerleaders wearing schoolgirl uniforms and walking around feeding people jello shots, something I, a young man from Podunk, Ohio, was hardly accustomed to. That was, ah, memorable, but hardly necessary for a good time. My most enjoyable 'party' memories are usually random house parties, which have the added appeal of no $100+ bar tab at the end. American drinking culture, especially college drinking, is pretty f'd up anyway.
I feel like I burned my party candle at both ends for a few years and pretty much ran out of gas at the end. That's not something you want to happen during 1L. Maybe after exams.
I changed what I said because I didn't want to make it seem like I wanted to be a total alcoholic. It's just that the vast majority of my friends don't drink at all, and their idea of a wild night is staying up late to watch a movie. It kind of gets to the point where you get so bored, that you just want to get all your partying out of your system. But, in reality, I don't think I could or would want to go out every night. But I also can't stay in every night for the next three years. I need a mix.
