Do people feel claustrophobic in Hyde Park because there isn't much to do, or is it fine?
Also, I'm going to see Regents on Saturday. Is that where most people live? How do people like it?
Finally, do most people spend most of their study-time in the library? If yes, it seems like living close to the law school would be nice, but that area felt dicey when I walked around there.
To all you working on briefs, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, and good luck! (Sorry, I've got one more: is only the last of the three LRW assignments graded?)
I'd say libertarian. Maybe a few social conservatives, but it's not like they wear t-shirts.
HP is fine, especially for 1L. You're pretty busy.
Most people live in Regents their 1L year, people seem to like it fine.
People study in the law school during the day a lot, but most people filter out by nighttime. There are also free UChicago shuttles that go around campus once the buses stop running.
No, the open memo during winter quarter is also graded.
