I am considering many housing options for the fall and wanted to get a feel for how others have approached the following issues:1. Roommate or no roommate? Why or why not?2. If you had a roommate, how did you find one?3. Is it best to room with a law student or live with someone in a different graduate program (med, business, phd, etc.)?4. Should you make home as comfortable as possible given the stress of being a law student ( i.e. going for that pretty high rise around the corner because you will want a nice place to come home to after a rough day)? OR, is the stress not worth it/high enough to balance out the cost of living/debt management (this assumes, of course, that you are somewhat concerned with the high cost of attending law school)?Thanks!
With regard to your last question, I don't know that anyone who hasn't been to law school yet can speak to the benefits of choosing a relatively nice place over a relatively cheap place.
but luxury apartments or 2BR places by yourself just strikes me as financially irresponsible for a student (assuming you're paying for it all with loans).
cantwaitforuva-I have a friend who is graduating this year. She lived in a place called Turtle Cove (iirc) and it was a 2 bed 2 bath for ~$800. If you want 2 bedrooms, that's a way better price. But, you'd need a car, it's about a 10 min drive from the law school.
