Im talking to a Chicago grad tomorrow about this, but what I'm trying to decide is if I ought to ED chicago or not.
I can take this one... kinda. I actually got rejected from Chicago. HOWEVER, I did actually attend UChicago for one of their masters programs last year and got the opportunity to take classes in the Law School, so I've actually experienced both UChicago and Michigan. Honestly, I like the vibe at Michigan much, much better, so much so I'm actually glad Chicago rejected me. Sometimes things work out for the right reason. I have no problem with Chicago on paper - their professors are AMAZING, and their classes are great, and of course they have a wonderful reputation for preparing you to go in any direction (academia, clerkship, firm, etc.). However, their student body struck me as... cold. Some of them were very nice, but none of them seemed all that happy. Everyone seemed to have their head down and focused on their work. I think that's great for them, but its not me. I've had a MUCH better time at Michigan, but I think that's mostly because my personality fits there better. I'm sure there are many out there for whom Chicago would be a better fit.
