Yeah, I wasn't sure about it before I visited but then the visit really impressed me. As for where law students live, its pretty much wherever in the city. I'm thinking about Arlington because I like it much more than DC.
Unless I get in somewhere else I really like and am impressed (or another school offers me $$ haha) I think I'm going to be at Catholic next year.
for hotels, try the baymont..well..ok it used to be the baymont i'm not sure what it is now..i think a holiday inn express maybe. it's off of williston. other good hotels are right off archer and i75. but don't stay downtown (the little downtown that there is) because its really shady, and hotels off of 13th street are hit or miss (mostly miss)
I want to visit Hofstra next week but I don't think I'll make it: Flight :$78 (roundtrip, thats right) Taxi: who knows Hotel: $200 (2 nights) ------- probably 400ish, I don't know if I want to spend $400 on a school I'm not sure about..but what if I visit and absolutely love it? grrr
