i don't even like sharing my space with my pet so another person is not even an option. i'm willing to bet if married couples didn't live together the divorce rate would be much lower  ;) j/k...kinda :)

I tend to agree, I already started weighing that option.  :D

there are things you just don't know or notice about someone until you live with them.

Very true.

I'm going solo for the first time and am psyched about it  :)
I am officially a law school graduate : )

interesting question... interested to see what current law students would have to say.

i am considering living by myself, but it would be ~$400 more expensive per month.

I have accepted the fact that to live alone means I will be living in a 400 sq ft apartment...as long as it is all mine...then it is all good :)  I remember living with another person in a 100-150 sqft dorm room.  I will miss the space in my one bedroom but alas that cannot be helped.

400 sq ft studio's aren't that bad. I think living alone is worth the payoff, personally. Not to mention, it seems like most of our time will be spent on campus in the library anyways. I'm also married though, so I've moved SO past those roommate days, I have no desire to repeat my early college days by living with random people who may or may not have habits which will adversely affect my ability to study/relax.

I am really, really looking foward to getting a place by myself. I'm getting a studio, but a larger one that is about 600 square feet. I've never lived by myself before, but I think I am really going to enjoy it!

I've had bad experiences with random roomates as my roomate freshman year of college was addicted to meth and coke and also snorted vodka (that was fun to watch, I must say).

i'm looking forward to living with some of my grad student friends. they are the opposite of law school anal stereotypes, which i think i will need after a while..

Alone!  Keep in mind that if you are going through your school, you will not have a roommate, but a law school student as a roommate.  I think we have all accepted that law students are a breed apart and often competitive and/or Type A.   :o Of course this is not universal, but god forbid you get stuck with a gunner as your roommate.  Live alone.  For how much you will already be paying, the extra investment is worth it.  As it has been said, living alone is priceless.
