Some of the duplexs, etc. around the law school are great. However, with Macon you have good neighborhoods very close to not so good ones. While I really like some of the stuff downtown, I would live in North Macon and drive the extra 10-15 min. Colonial Properties has a few complexs, I used to live in one out in a golf community, Barrington Hall. Little price but really nice.(they are doing a ton of construction/development out this way now. Major traffic.) They have another out Riverside Drive, I think it is Colonial at Spring Creek. They seem to be one of the larger companies and pretty much have their stuff together. They allow pets with a deposit too. My house is in the "midtown" area. there are a few cheaper apts. there, but usually pretty small companies.
I've been to an Open House, etc. at the law school and have a lot of friends there. Majority of students are single for the most part. Think I will be the minority there.
