I would not live there. I had a friend who lived in that area and was next door to a drug dealer.

The most important thing is: is he the only drug dealer around? Only competition brings violence.

Well this summer we had someone in my county cooking in the basement while his mom operated a daycare upstairs. All the kids got sick from the fumes, but thankfully no explosion.

I can care less about a ganja man living beside me, but it is the dealing part that gets a little curious.

Like I said, if there is no competition, all you put up with is more vehicle traffic. If there is, watch out.

Most stoners around here don't have a choice on who they live next to - they are poor.

The drug dealer got arrested. I'm not sure if that makes him good or bad.

Does anyone have an idea of how UVA places in Chicago for someone without ties? While DC and NY are obvious draws if I manage to do well enough for BigLaw, Chicago is my favorite city that I've been to in the US. However, I have absolutely no ties to the city.

Submit a request to connect to an alum in Chicago and ask. I put it one for CA and waiting.

It's difficult. Not as difficult as Boston, but much harder than NYC. The Chicago market isn't exactly flourishing right now, and from what I could tell, the Chicago firms that came to OGI were pretty much only ones that would look for above-average grades or better.

Edit: the few firms that weren't as grade conscious had smaller classes.
