Hi again all. I am in my senior year of high school, and I now face the challenge of choosing a good college to go to. I hope to go into the sciences, probably engineering. One of my choices for schools is Northwestern, in Evanston. I love the school, and I'm fairly certain I can get in, but I'm not quite sold on Chicago. I've lived in a medium sized city(Memphis) all my life where the only way to get around was by car, where I knew where everything was, and where the population of the entire county was only around 1 million. Now, I am looking at attending a school outside the third largest city in the nation! So, the prospect of living in so large a city, especially one that feels so unfamiliar, is intimidating. Can any Chicago residents tell me about the city? Anything I should know? Would it be a hard adjustment? This is all new territory for me, and I appreciate any comments you guys have.
