Not sure if it would be the same as an official visit, but it would save me the money. I haven't been to NY in years so I would definitely fly out for that to figure out NYU.
Let me ask you this, is UChicago really the place where "fun goes to die" LOL? Secondly, I don't have a strong econ background...AT ALL, will I be hampered there? I mean I don't mind reading up on my economics the summer before matriculating if it comes to that, I've been planning to do that anyway. I was just wondering. I know they semi-answered it on their website, but you seem to be a UChicago stalker LOL..so I figured you would know.
NYU seems like a place I'd like a lot...and I like their clinicals more than UChicago's...in fact that's my only knock on UChicago from what I've seen. Their clinical program doesn't seem that extensive though some of them appear interesting. I don't think I saw a mediation/negotiation clinic.
Well Chicago gives a travel stipend for ASW if you're more than 150 miles away, so you can go cheaply then!
I hate to disappoint, but everything I know about Chi (the school) is from the threads on TLS - I haven't visited the law school yet. I've been to the UG campus and Hyde Park, and my mom's from Chicago so I've been there a lot (and love it, of course!), but most of my love for the school is wanting to be in Chicago (the city), and I've had my heart set on the T6 for law school, so it was the best of the three for me. Sorry I'm not of more help, but I think visits will be really helpful for you! Good luck in the decision!
