I've got a transfer offer from Washington & Lee. I know it's a top 25 school, and I'm pretty sure the school has great reputation.
My question is as follows:
1) How far is Lexington away from Washington D.C.? I'm currently a student at Buffalo NY, so I'm not sure whether I should drive or get rid of my car and just fly. The map indicates Lexington is pretty far away from D.C. (just as much as Buffalo is far away from NYC). I know I'm going to have to return to Buffalo anyway, because I gotta pack up my stuff. Would I need a car in Lexington? Or is Lexington like NYC that having a car is actually a burden?
2) I wonder how big a city Lexington is. One of the reasons why I desired a transfer was not because I had problem with my current law school, but I just wasn't able to enjoy my life at a small mid-size city. At one point, I was so emotionally stressed out that I had to go and see a doctor for psychological reasons during the middle of the semester. I eventually ended up falling in love with the school itself, but I just can't imagine myself returning and going through the pain of living in the area again. I made good- actually great - friends, so the school itself, I have no problem with, but it's the small city life I really want to avoid. So, how is Lexington like compared to D.C.?
