Can't help you there...I plan on living off campus.
Nola8688--I plan on living off campus because I don't want the Tenderloin to be my only SF experience. I want to have a diverse experience and get to know people outside of law school. My hope is to find a roommate or 2 on housing day and find a place off campus. That way, I get the experience of living w/ several students, but not hundreds. I just think exam time would be a total frenzy in the tower. I think living off campus will help me keep perspective. I also agree that the tower is quite expensive now compared to what you can get off campus. So...hopefully I will find some nice folks on housing day. I spoke to a 1L at admit weekend and she said that is how she found her roommates.
