The CTA thing is only really true if you live in Lincoln Square or something. If you live on the lakefront commuting will obviously be longer. Both the neighborhoods I suggested are on the Blue Line, which is one of the fastest. For like 10 months they had a slow zone near downtown while they fixed the tracks, but its fine now. So, okay, if you're going to the airport, or want to ride the Clark bus up to Wrigley Field or something, yeah, its going to take longer. But I get through downtown to the law school on the CTA in about 10 min.
Well, with the funding situation, there is no way to tell what is going to happen. That's why I am saying it's completely up in the air. And yes, coming from the north sucks. My friends who live in Lakeview or Lincoln Park allow at least 45 minutes to get to Loyola. And that's pretty ridiculous, compared to how it was 2 years ago.
