I lived for in DC for four years as an undergrad and thought it was great. I would agree with nukelaw's assessment of the city.
i imagine most of your friends will come from your law school class unless you already have friends that live there.
safety in northwest dc is just fine. like any other big city, you just have to be mindful of where you go and at what time you go there.
foggy bottom is in a pretty good part of town and its location is convenient to the rest of the city. living in the city is fun, but expensive. i've never lived in northern virginia, but i've heard that it's nice as far as housing goes, especially ballston where there is a younger crowd.
as far as friendliness - i don't think it's particularly friendly, but it's not notoriously rude like nyc. and nukelaw was definitely right about people avoiding eye contact (but that seems to be prevalent all over the east coast).
it's a great town with a lot to offer. the city has something for everyone. and gw is a large enough school that you'll find your niche.

my fiancee and i were set on an apartment in the logan circle/thomas circle part of town (just 10 blocks from campus), but the move in date was a little too late for us. and, 13th and mass (where the apartment was) didn't really have much of a neighborhood feel, not that that will matter much to me since i'll be at the library studying most of the time.
anyway, today we got word about an apartment that we applied for in adams morgan. my fiancee is moving into the apartment in a few weeks. i'll join her after the wedding in july. there is a bus that goes directly to gulc from 18th and columbia (the 96 bus) and then there is the 42 bus that goes to du pont where you can get on the red line. it's a little removed from campus, but that can be a good thing too (at least that's what i'm telling myself).
Thanks. Have you heard of foucault's pendulum? I have heard it is supposed to be good.
i've also heard that foucault's pendulum is supposed to be very good. from what i've heard, it's the thinking man's (or woman's) Da Vinci Code. i've also heard that the geographer's library is supposed to be good.
mr. wildcat please accept my deepest apologies. i hope my misreading of the question and subsequent explanation did not do permanent damage to your refined sensibilities or sensitive ego. if there is anything i can do to make amends, please let me know.....
i thought i read iBook, not iMac (my mistake), which are indeed being replaced by Mac Books.
the Mac Book Pro's have been out since january. but i think the question was really asking when Mac Books (the iMac's replacement are coming out). i've heard they will ship in may or june. they'll have a 13" screen and be available with the core duo or core solo intel chips. also, i've heard that they also might be available in crazy colors like the originally iMac notebooks - but who knows.
AZWildcat - i've been reading a lot about high pitch whining sound coming out of the new Macs. have you had any problems with this?
here is a link of a bunhc of disgruntled macbook pro purchasers talking about their noise problems:
i hope by the time i buy mine the problem will be fixed.
also - did you buy yours at a store or throught the website? how long after your ordered (if your ordered it) did it take to arrive?
yeah - you have to send an official transcript and a dean's certification.
i read somewhere (maybe it was law school confidential) that you should get a couple of copies of your official transcript for yourself as you will need them during law school. i don't remember why you need your official transcripts, but the authors thought they were useful.
i'll be there. since i applied ED, i don't have to make any deposit.
as for living - my fiance and i were seriously looking at a couple of apartments on 13th and mass, but i think we're going to end up living in adams morgan. if i wasn't engaged, i would happily live in the dorm - the convenience can't be beat.
