I emailed Ann Perry a few days ago, and she said they had just started reviewing financial aid info.

My conception of what is fun is so different than the traditional one of parties, blasting music, intoxication, etc., that Chicago sounds like a lot of fun to me.

Oh I had to add this gem from the TLS profile:

Brian Leiter wrote:A friend of mine from NYU’s faculty came to a conference here and participated in a Friday evening session of the conference and it wasn’t like it was a Supreme Court justice, it was a bunch of law professors on a Friday evening, and there were about a hundred and fifty students and he couldn’t believe it. He said this wouldn’t happen at NYU — there are more distractions.


This visiting professor from NYU was literally incredulous at how lame Chicago students are.


How is it lame to take advantage of opportunities to learn?


It was a joke. I was playfully implying that Chicago students might not have as many "fun" options on a Friday night (in reality, I'm sure they do).

TBF, I don't think all the students were hanging around on a Friday evening just for the law professors' scintillating conversation.

There's free beer at school on Fridays.

Ooops. Number one problem with online communication: people ascribe tones of voice to sentences (often wrongly). Sorry!

Yes definitely. However, like TexasAggie13, I will need to know N64/GCN/Wii so I can start my 0L prep.

Good point. I vote GCN / Wii - the N64 version feels too "slow" after playing the latter two.

Things will get real if we set the damage to 2.0x and play with bumpers as the only item.

I've always preferred Melee over Brawl. It just has that special something going for it!

I'll play. I was never that good among my friends but that's because I have a few who were actually tourny players and do all the wavedashing and fancy moves and shit lol.

I have a hard enough time just being able to selectively choose between tilts and smashes!
