He spent like 5 minutes in an hour long welcoming speech talking about the weather. I appreciated the point, as I was under the impression that Chicago was significantly colder than the other two cities.
Where fun goes to die! Could not find anyone to refute this school's reputation and most of the admits were weird!
Really? I'm kind of surprised you got that impression. Most of the admits seemed perfectly normal to me. While it does seem that Chicago may have an intellectual environment, I didn't get the impression that it was "where fun goes to die" particularly more than law school not being especially fun in general. But I do think atmosphere and thinking about whether you can see yourself at that school are important factors to consider in your decision. So if you were really turned off by the school's reputation, then that is a valid reason to not attend. You'll have to weigh that against other factors, but keep in mind the main reason you are going to school: to find gainful employment.
Don't dis other law schools!- why did they keep dissing Columbia in Moot Court? unnecessary in my view
When was this? I don't remember any of this but I might have missed it. I didn't notice significant bashing of other schools at other. In fact, I got a lot of "well, those are both great schools" when I told them about what schools I was deciding between. They seemed to make an effort to not diss any other schools, which I appreciated but did not find necessary.
Juices - why were they all so warm and auditorium cold?
What? This shouldn't really be relevant to your decision whether to attend or not.
Hyde park is a ghetto
Yes, Hyde Park is certainly a less than desirable area to live in, but in no way would I consider it a "ghetto." Most people move up north after their 1L year anyways, but I can understand how this would be a legitimate factor in making your decision.
I am being picky but I was really excited to attend UC but US vs Arizona did me in! I looked around and it was a yawner for everyone including prof posner
Again, you really shouldn't be making your decision whether to attend or not based on this. It was a little boring, and I agree with the poster who said if they had staged it as a debate it would have been much more interesting.
