Connecticut / Re: Housing

A lot of students live right by school in the West End of Hartford or in West Hartford like you mentioned.  West Hartford is cleaner and nicer than West End, but West End is okay to live in.  There's a lot of building and houses that rent out to law students in the area.  I live in the West End and it's nice being so close to school.  It shouldn't be too hard to find something.  I don't know of any bldgs or contacts in West Hartford.  Admin should be giving you a list of housing contacts at some point.

Are you from Conn?  It's a good school for in-state tuition.  Even if you're coming from out of state, you can petition to get residency and in-state tutition after your first year. 

I like it here.  Some days more than others.  I'm not from CT so I miss where I'm from, but don't have a lot of time to dwell on that with all the reading/work.  It's a beautiful (although small) campus.  Depending on whether you want a small student body or not - it's good because I think it's easier to get lost in a school with a bigger student body - you get more individual attention here.  At the same time, it is a small state law school, so maybe not as many resources as a private school.  Especially in terms of Career Services if you want to practice outside of CT.

The student body is not too competitive.  People are friendly and helpful.  Although the small class size makes it seem very high school at times.  There's not much to do around here though, which makes it a good study atmosphere.  Professors are for most part accessible too.

As a 1L, you only get about a week/10 days for winter break since there is an interim Moot Court class held in January (learning how to write an appellate brief and do oral arguments within the one month). 

Anything else or more specific that you want to know?
