What you all have said makes sense.
I do like UChicago a lot, but I also love New York, and my SO, friends, and family are here, so I'm just figuring out whether it's worth leaving that.
I understand that it's a hard decision and you seem to be very angst-filled over it, but I also feel like this is a good time to make the general point that this really is neither a recruitment thread nor a thread of law school guidance counselors/therapists. This applies to a few people, not just you.
I think everyone is happy to talk about Chicago classes or living in Hyde Park or our experiences with professors or Career Services or whatever. Maybe it's just me projecting my frustrations about our brief assignment onto internet people, but it's kind of annoying when some people come in looking for either people to tell them how to weigh their personal lives with law school or to justify our grading system or to try to persuade you to pick Chicago over CLS/NYU.
If you are coming to Chicago and you have questions and are excited, that's awesome. But we are not the admissions committee. We are not guidance counselors. We really don't care if you pick Chicago and if you seem annoying we (or at least I) probably want you to choose somewhere else. In summation, although I want to be helpful and pay it forward the way this thread helped me last year, whether you pick Chicago or not...
