Fun in the windy city?

Postby toolfan » Sat Jun 05, 2010 6:06 pm

I like beer. Actually, I really like beer. I like to drink beer socially. That includes drinking beer with my soon-to-be peers. However, after browsing these novelty rankings (--LinkRemoved--), I've come to what I hope is the premature conclusion that Chicago area law schools are boring. Are there any Kent/Depaul/Loyola kids that can shine some light on this VERY important issue? I've excluded N and C on purpose. I don't suppose they'd be any fun in the first place.

Kidding aside, what the hell Chicago?

Edit: According to the stats, Uni of Chicago and Northwestern are much more fun than I thought. I've got it all wrong.

Good edit, because you were TOTALLY wrong. Chicago is arguably one of the most interesting cities in the US. There are all kind of different things to see and do for all sorts of folks.

And we've got killer beers with Goose Island Brewing right in the city. Matilda FTW.

I'll let you know what I think of Chicago after I go there in July. I will be there for three days-that is obviously more than enough time to form an accurate opinion.

Rest assured, Chicago is an incredibly fun city. In the summer, I think it's the best city in America. If you like beer, there are some veritable beer meccas in this town:

lol wut?

Chicago is one of the biggest, most vibrant cities in America. It is full of clubs and bars and things to do. Also, I hate the Cubs, but I recommend spending time here:

Wrigley Field is a blast and the Wrigleyville area around there is full of great places to drink beer.

I'm looking forward to living in Chicago. It just surprised me to see that, according to that survey, chicago area law students don't seem to have social lives, atleast when compared to other law students at other institutions. I was trying to be facetious, tho, as I'm sure I'll enjoy myself and the city, irrespective of my peers. Oh and thanks for those beer spots. I'll definately be checking those out.
