The John Marshall Law School Reviews
The weather in Chicago is only extreme during the winter months. However, the winter minimally affects the campus experience. The campus is located in Downtown Chicago, IL and is in the heart of the bustling and convenient south loop neighborhood. The campus in located in the same block as one of the city's transportation subway train stops, and the entrance to the train stop is no more than 10 yards from the campus entrance. That being said, the weather elements are not much of a factor. Additionally, there are several restaurants and shops within walking distance, and there are several bus stops traveling toward different directions located in the same block of our campus. The weather does not effectively affect the campus experience.
The local atmosphere is ideal for a college and college students. There are several attractions within walking distance such as museums and city monuments. Additionally, the city is a cultural hub with an array of events for a multitude of cultural events every week. There are many shopping malls and stores within walking distance, and the Chicago sports teams play at venues which are relatively close to the campus. The locals are very accommodating of students and much of those in the area are themselves students.
I live in Chicago so everyone's perspective is different. Personally, I learned I am not a city person, there's is A LOT of crime and it's very dirty. It's a hassle to go anywhere in town and takes forever. The cost of living is outrageous as well. But the opportunity to say you lived in Chicago for a few years, the experience, and the variety of people of people you get to meet is priceless (almost).
