Bucktown/Wicker Park

Wicker Park by Damen and North is about as hipster as you can get.

But all are a pain to commute to/ from school. I guess the 66 goes through Ukrainian village, and that's kinda close to the hipster neighborhoods.

There are express busses that run north up lakeshore drive and make the commute pretty manageable. Look in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, and Uptown.

Once you are at the Village, though, it's just a straight shot up the blue line from chicago/milwaukee. It's not that bad, really.

Does anyone have a good Evidence outline they'd be willing to share? Bonus points if it's for Turkheimer!! I will buy you coffee, a drink, or bake you cookies as a thank you!

I have outlines from Koehler, Allen, and Burns here. I suspect you're going to have a hard time finding a Tuerkheimer outline since it's her first time teaching it here.

Some people figured it out at ASW last year and others did so on the admitted students facebook group

I had the pulled chicken salad and the quinoa wrap and was underwhelmed by both. The dishes lacked flavor. In ingredients seemed fresh but either the dressing was bland (salad) or there was no sauce or dressing whatsoever (wrap).
The lemon poppy seed loaf was pretty good.

The sandwiches were much better before the menu revision (way before the renovation started). Back when everything had a legal-themed name like the deposition and the barrister.

Definitely try the people you get to know at ASW. I know multiple people who went in that direction and were not unhappy about it.

I'd recommend against living with law students 1L year.

So, strange question, but is there anywhere near the law school that sells high-quality (not grocery store) ice cream/custard/gelato by the pint/quart? I could be wrong but I don't think Ghiradelli or L'appetito do.
