To be fair, 2.5 feet of snow in a 24 hour period is a lot for any place to handle. You could literally be stranded at work for days if you caught it at the wrong time.

Like I said, people in DC can't handle the snow. I lived there for a year after graduation. Every time it snowed, people acted like it was the end of the world.

I'm confused by Chicago's admissions procedures. Maybe they average LSAT scores. Or maybe my wholeheartedly liberal and PI-oriented PS was not to their liking.

Have any of the accepted people gotten an e-mail or had that status update from the 2/4 UR?

Chicago is relatively conservative and leans more toward BigLaw than any other T6 except maybe Columbia.

If you base your perception of the priorities of the school on their dean at all...

Would any of the new admits be so kind as to reveal the first letter of their last name?

When you say "Chicago," who do you mean? Faculty? Students? How does a school "lean"?

Faculty. I don't know how this rubs off on the students.

And a higher percentage of Chicago grads go into BigLaw than any other T6 except maybe Columbia.

Consequently, my PI-focused PS and thinly veiled liberalism might have rubbed them the wrong way.

I heard this wasn't really true anymore. I think I also read that Scalia scolded them for not being conservative enough.

He'd probably scold Regent Law for not being conservative enough.
