i highly doubt that they actually enforce the "no overnight guests" rule. almost every dorm-type housing i've ever heard of has had that type of rule and it was never enforced.
yeah, the twin bed sucks - almost made me change my mind about living in the alabama. but for me, convenience is soooo important. i'm also still in "college mode" and, as such, i'm used to rolling out of bed five minutes before class begins. it'll be realllly nice to be able to (basically) do that for the first year of law school. i'm also worried about distractions, etc...i just think living there will make me really focus and then, come spring, i will know the city well enough to take the time and find an apartment in an area that i really like. it'll also be nice to meet people there. a ton of my friend will be in nyc, but i'm really hoping to make new friends too and not be stuck in the same tight group from college.
i actually got my assignment today, i got a studio and i'm excited about it. i checked out the building a few weeks ago, it seemed safe, quiet and well-kept, and the unit i saw was nice. yes, it was "dormy" with the small bed and generic furniture, but it was big enough for one person to be totally comfortable (and had 2 closets!). it's not cheap but i think we're paying for location, which is good enough for me.
