Lakewood and University Heights are both good areas to live. Lakewood has lots of tall apartment buildings along the lakefront, and the rent is reasonable ($450 for a one bedroom with garage parking.) Ohio City is a historic district, really culturally alive place to live, with the west side market, lots of people out, cool bars and good music. University Heights is near Case, so you get a student-type crowd and you are near the heart of little Italy, so the food won't disappoint. Coventry is nearby as well, and it's funky and young adult friendly. I would advise driving around and checking out which area you feel comfortable in, since they all have their own advantages/atmospheres. If you want to live within walking distance, Reserve Square is an apartment complex about 2 blocks from the law school.
sometimes you can get Arabic through mosques or maronite catholic churches, free or cheap. Hebrew you might be able to get through a Jewish center or Temple. That is obviously specific. I've also found you can ask foreign students for tutoring. Lots of fun!
I was admitted and I am still up in the air (waiting to hear from 4 schools still.) I got into a school in Oregon that is sort of on-par with C-M. I am a native Clevelander and right now I am leaning towards C-M--I am just waiting for something (I don't know what) to push me over the edge one way or another!
Any clue about where you guys are living? I have been wondering where to live a lot recently!
are there any current Willamette students out there? I am seriously considering attendance (have already been admitted) and would love to hear your opinions... top 3 great things, worst 3 things about the school? How bad is this curve I hear about and how many people lose scholarships? Thanks!
