It allows you to see recent crimes. There have been two separate shootings like one block away from the law school within the past coupe weeks (doesn't appear that anyone died, but still). There have also been tons of random less serious crimes. Can some current Chicago students or anyone from Chicago elaborate on exactly how bad it is and what boundaries should be drawn (for choosing apartments etc.). Also, does anyone know if we can get a concealed (or not) handgun permit? I'm thinking it would be pretty easy for a female law student.
uhhhhhhhhhhh ok now im scared. i dont want to get shot!
My friend who went to UofC undergrad the last four years said that the "dangers" in Hyde Park are blown totally out of proportion and that you have to be doing something stupid in order to be involved in one of the sketchy situations.
