Not really, but Xifeng can.
Off the top of my head, definitely look over the new LRAP and new clinic they started, but other than that I'm all biglaw, so she knows way more about it than me.
Xifeng is PI? lolol. Dany and I can answer questions re: models/bottles.
Yes I am, bitches! XD
Quick summary: from what I've learned talking to the people at Chicago, PI is becoming much more important to them. Even last year, the LRAP sucked (sorry, Chicago. It's true), but now it's wayyy better and even clerkships count in case you want to do that before doing regular PI stuff. They have a new "Director of Public Interest Law and Policy," Susan Curry, who seems really great. They're also expanding clinical opportunities!
Here's an article about them expanding their PI stuff:http://www.law.uchicago.edu/news/susan- ... st-program
tl;dr of my 'quick summary': they seem to be working to build up their PI community, and it definitely feels that you would get a lot of support/attention even if you are in the minority at Chicago
ETA: and feel free to PM me if you have more questions about PI/my talks with Chicago people. I would like to only be outed on Day 2 of orientation versus Day 1 <3
