A 30 year repayment plan doesn't feel like a temporary challenge.  It is like having two rents.  I'm sure it is not as daunting if you are interested in Big Law but for those interested in other types of law....yikes

It also depends on what you are interested in doing after graduation.  If you are leaning towards public interest or gov't work I don't see how you can afford Brooklyn.  From my research, I've basically found that Brooklyn's loan repyment program sucks compared to Rutgers. You will get a good education at a fraction of the price.  Debt is a harsh reality.  I'm friends with a Fordham graduate who is a slave to her firm job and still has $80,000 to go.  She always says that if she could do it over again she would pick the cheaper school instead.

Thanks for the feedback.  I think, that since I'm looking for a one bedroom or a studio, the rates are just more expensive.  With a roommate, it is doable.  But I was really hoping to avoid moving in with strangers for my first year of law school.  I've had bad roommates before and I don't want to risk that kind of drama during my first year.  Does anyone know if the Greenville or Jersey City Heights areas are decent, safe?

So, I've figured out that living in Hoboken is about as expensive as Manhattan.  Anyone know what the nice areas of Jersey City are?  I don't know anything about it and don't know how to evaluate the ads on craigslist.  Thanks.

Concerning the trains.   If you are taking the subway from Riverdale you will rpbably wind up taking a city bus to the subway.  Depending on where you live.  It used to take me about a 10 minute bus ride to get to the subway.  During prime travel times the buses ran all the time but it is really annoying to wait late at night.  There are parking lots near the metronorth train lines that go to Grand Central.  Some you can even walk to. 

I would rather mathlete understand why his comment is totally rude than just insult him.
