Thanks!! I may have to sneak out of work to catch one of the 2:30s! (or both?? Am I allowed to sit in more than once?)


I don't see why not.

Definitely PM and let me know if you come to Contracts, I sit by some empty seats so you can peek over my notes.

Thanks! These are super helpful. I suck at twitter and don't even know what google plus is....Clearly I'm social media challenged.. Sooo sad to feel old at 23....

P.S. is the past tense of "tweet" what i think it is?

And I'm 33. I grew up before broadband. My dad is a 64-year-old computer programmer who grew up with vacuum tubes in his radios. Age is no excuse.

Guess I just have a dirty mind hahaha... :oops:

True, age isn't an excuse. Though my mother asked me once how to minimize a window... She has a BS in Computer Science....

More on topic though: How much does everyone love chicago? Even though I live with all the yuppie douchebags in River North, I freaking love this city

The indoor heating policy is retarded (wearing a tank top indoors as I type this), I miss having a car, the August humidity almost killed me, and sales tax sucks. But the museums and restaurants are fantastic, the architecture is beautiful (except for the Prentice Women's Hospital), and I love the view of the lake from the library.

counter: love not driving, and prentice is awesome and beautiful and it's a damn shame they want to tear it down. Chicago is amazing.

Indoor heating policy?

I'm terrified of driving, so I lovveee not having a car. (The most ironic part of this is I focus primarily on automotive companies at work). I didn't think August was that bad, but I had a super busy August work wise, and spent most of the summer in the office...So it may have been bad... :/ Agree with the amazing architecture! Haven't seen the Prentice Women's Hospital, but the General Growth building is across from my work and is quite possibly the ugliest building in the world... takes up an entire city block and is literally only 4 stories tall on Wacker. Almost looks like the Men in Black building haha

I took the LSAT last Saturday in LM Hall and had a view of the lake from the classroom. Definitely put me in a more serene mood before the test!!

Prentice looks like a Soviet Space Prison. It's cracked and yellowed concrete and could not look any more unattractively dated if they had tried. Why Goldberg is revered as an architect is beyond my comprehension. His buildings are god-awful eyesores bridging the gap between the fantastic old stuff and the cool post-modern. (Yes, River City is ugly too.)

Even natives said August was bad.

My complaint is that as soon as the temperature dropped below 75 outside, buildings (particularly my apartment building, which is my specific beef) immediately cranked the indoor heat up to 75. I'm used to using indoor heat VERY sparingly, and this is fucking up my fall. The weather outside is fabulous and I want to curl up with a blanket and some soup. Instead, I'm flopping on my couch in a tank top eating cottage cheese. I'm barely able to keep a sweatshirt on at school without sweating to death. They even heat the GYM.

Oooh your apartment building controls your heat? That definitely sucks. My building is a "4-seasons" building so I control the heat at all times...Definitely pay for it though and will not be living in a building this nice in law school. So sad to going back to being poor again! But sooo worth it career wise.... Do most of you NU Law folks live in Streeterville or somewhere cheaper?

Did someone call for a Chicago love-fest?

Ohai!

I LOVE Chicago. It's much colder than I'm used to and I dislike humidity, but I think the city more than makes up for it. There's so much to do!! The public transit is fucking amazing, especially when compared to LA. I LOVE LOVE LOVE never having to drive. There are so many bars and such a great nightlife, and SO MANY AWESOME FOOD PLACES. My friends and I are thinking of starting a list and hitting up one every week. Everyone here is so crazy nice, it's so clean, and seriously it's a great city.

(secret: I've also grown to kind of like the chilliness. It's so refreshing. Jury's still out on whether I'll survive the winter though :lol: )

Would this narrative have been as effective without this detail?

I imagine a negative Yelp! review written by you would put a place out of business in a week, lol

I did!!! I love this city! Fall is definitely my fave weather. Leather jackets, skinny jeans and boots are my FAVE casual wear, hands down. If you think it's "cold" now, you better go buy a superwarm winter coat ASAP!! Last winter was super mild, but I have a feeling this one will be a killer. I'm a total Chicago restaurant nerd!! When she asked me what I did in my free time during my NU interview, I said, "Well I LOVE the Chicago restaurant scene" and proceeded to talk about restaurants for like 7 minutes. She probably thought I was a total nut.

I literally JUST bought a Land's End floofy puff jacket thing because they had a 40% off deal, and I bought a pair of Steve Madden rainboots that I'm hoping are awesome because they're $100 cheaper than the Hunters I was going to buy. I sadly had to leave a lot of fall clothing back at home (I flew over with just what I could bring in 2 50 lb suitcases) so I only have like 2-3 fall jackets and 1 pair of boots :(

I'm definitely scared of the winter weather though. I've never seen a white Christmas in my life, so I don't know how I'll deal with below-freezing temps. Hopefully I'll be fine though. It helps that I live uber-close to campus.

DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE. The thing I am MOST EXCITED FOR is Restaurant Week!!!!!!!! I hope you get into NU, I get the feeling that we would be besties.

You may want to invest in the Northface triclimate trench. This thing is freaking amazing. I've lived in the midwest my whole life, went to UG in Iowa and this is the best winter coat I've ever had.

Snow is BEAUTIFUL!!! You'll love it. It's just so pretty! I love snow like crazy. But it is cold and when it gets dirty it's ugly and gross.

I just moved here in July 2011, so I've only had one restaurant week, AND I MISSED IT!! I was slammed at work and had to cancel everrryyythinggg. It sucked and I'm determined to go this year.

:shock: That is way above my price range so hopefully my $100 Lands End jacket will be good enough. If not...well, I know what I'm asking for for Christmas... :lol: When exactly is restaurant week? I want to be fully prepared.

You'll be fine!! I had similar jackets for 21 years and they worked great! Last year restaurant week was around Valentine's day week. So most people had fantastic V-day dates. I felt really bad because I had to cancel on other single friends due to work... :cry: Not sure when it is this year, but I'm excited. I went to Sepia in the West Loop last weekend and it was awesssoomme!

I knowwwww what you mean! As an IBanker, I not only got dumped last year, but find it IMPOSSIBLE to meet anyone new...so I'm a perpetual singleton it seems. I've embraced it and love hanging out with friends so it's NBD, and restaurant week will be super fun with or without some dude! (wow I am woman hear me roar! Didn't mean to go on a giant rant haha!)

I'm not sure how they announce it...I'll ask my trendy friends haha. I did a quick google search and it looks like it may be Feb 1 - Feb 10 this year, but the link that backed up that claim didn't work, so I don't entirely trust it.

I'll be your lady-date! bonus: no need to feel awkward restaurant week gorging, because I will be face-forward into delicious, delicious food.
