I can't tell you much about the course but I can tell you a lot about the city as I have spent some time there. In general Cleveland is pretty nice city and often overlooked for bigger more well known cities but it really shouldn't be.

If you like music the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is located there. Each year they have a ceremony where they induct musicians into the hall of fame and often they show up in Cleveland for the official ceremony.

Climate is not very bad. It is on the Eastern part of Lake Erie and that does affect its weather. It tends to get more rain and snow at times because of this but not too much. It isn't that it really rains or snows more often there just that when it does, the amounts of rain and snow are sometimes greater because the storms pick up moisture from the Lake Erie (one of the US' great lakes.

It isn't too far from Chicago if you wanted to take a bus there for the weekend (about 7 hours) and about 4 hours away by bus to Niagara Falls which is really quite beautiful to city.

Cleveland has a lot of good restaurants and a very diverse ethnic composition. So you can find a wide variety of foods. The Flats and the Warehouse district are 2 nice areas where you can find some interesting places to eat and go out for an evening of entertainment at bars and nightclubs if you like that type of thing.

Generally the people are friendly and the city isn't near as corrupt or expensive as Chicago.

For law there are definitely better schools to study at. Their medical and dental programs are highly regarded in the US. Maybe someday law will reach the level of their other professional schools.

I know we focus on mostly the top-ranked schools on this forum but you may not need a top-ranked program to advance your career.
