Hey thanks for making yourself available in this thread and info re. Doctorof. I was hoping you would answer a couple quick questions.
What''s your experience been like regarding the community at Chicago? I've heard it can be pretty gunnerish.
Also how does the quarter system affect your classes? I went to undergrad with semesters and my friends with quarters always had whacky class schedules.
The community is what makes me happy to come back and happy to stay here. I love these people; they have quickly become my family. I was afraid of our reputation as well but it's not really true. There's people who are intense and we're all here to learn and better ourselves academically but it's never at the expense at someone else. Having a small class-size helps prevent being a gunner because everyone would instantly know about it.
Classes are fine. It's great in the fall and backlogged in the spring, but at least you ease in to law school finals. They're about 8 weeks long but depending on the schedule it can change. It's a great opportunity to take more classes and get a wider breadth of experiences although it comes at a cost of losing some depth. That being said, our professors are kickass and will teach you a lot in your time with them and are always happy to chat if you're still interested.
I'm just paying it forward - best of luck and keep the questions coming. It's a nice break from OCI.
