Law school looms, and there are only days before decision time. I have been cramming in visits before it's time to put down a seat deposit at my favorite choice...
Portland was a terrific experience! Lewis & Clark Law School is located on the edge of a state park/miniature rain forest. To say that this place is lush is an understatement. From what I understand, things are only going to get greener over the coming months as spring puts even more leaves on the deciduous trees to compliment the already stunning coniferous vegetation.
Trails run in every direction around campus, and I feel a wonderful energy being in such a beautiful place with air this clean. Lauren was equally impressed by the stunning situation of the campus and correlating warmth of its faculty and students.
The city strikes me as a major metropolitan equivalent of Boulder. Clean, friendly, contrasting boutiques and trendy restaurants, and full of outdoorsy intellectuals. Public transit was top-notch with light rail service from the airport to downtown, and wow, the food trucks!!!
Whether Portland winds up being home for the next few years or not, we'll be back for sure!
