I wish I could come during the week and sit in on a class and all that but unfortunately I couldn't get work off. Anyways, do you guys have suggestions on what I could do besides touring the school and checking out apartments?
This weekend (i.e. the weekend of the NATO Summit)? Might not be a good idea.
Uh oh already booked my hotel...why's might it not be a good idea?
They're shutting down some of the most-traveled roads in the city. The actual summit is taking place only a couple dozen blocks north of where many of the law students live. I believe that the law school is recording 1L classes so students don't have to go to the school if things really go to hell. There should be a ridiculous number of protestors and police in the city.
Is Metra even running? I'm not sure if it is really going to be possible to get from downtown to school at all via public transit over the weekend? I guess you could take cabs, but with all the road closures the cab ride is probably going to be outrageously expensive. I'm impressed you were able to get a hotel room.
