I'm living in a 1BR by myself, and I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. Pick something that suits your personality. If you get irritated easily and value your space, spend the extra money and live by yourself, at least first year. I'm staying put for the rest of law school. When I get home from school, I don't want to deal with anything that might set me off, and that includes a roommate. Some people also opt to live alone first year and then move in with roommates second year, cause by that point it's not as big a deal and you're not quite so stressed out cause you've figured out the game.
And I would say don't worry about the people who say you won't be employed at graduation. There's no guarantee, but honestly, it's completely within your control based on how hard you work and (perhaps more importantly) how you network.
