No, I paid attention in Elements and I know how they taste. I'm sure the 0Ls prefer sugar-coated optimism to honesty, right.
It's been a long, long time since I've posted in TLS but cruising this site during my internship downtime, thought I'd post again to respond to the hate against my law school.
I had a fantastic 1L year. 1st quarter was a lot of fun, 2nd quarter was a little less fun, and 3rd quarter was a lot of work, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Before this, I've never learned so much in such a little time, been surrounded by high quality intelligent peers (who are also fun to be with), and learned from genius professors (who mostly are approachable and happy to help you outside of class). At least in my experience, this is a great school and was a great choice for me.
Hyde Park does suck, but Chicago is a huge city with a lot to offer. As long as you plan something fun downtown at least once a week, you'll be happy. There are great museums, bars, restaurants, and events to visit. Just make sure to maximize your non law school time.
I am sorry to hear someone has such a terrible taste in her mouth about our school. Don't put too much stock in that posters opinion: at least among my social circles, it seems like there are much more people that enjoyed our 1L year than those that hated it.
