Also, not to be presumptuous, but unless you have a pretty sweet job right now you're probably living with your parents. That's certainly not something I'd want to be doing in law school.
Speak for yourself! Walnut Creek is awesome. Also, I'm not sure why you assume that one would either have to live with their parents or have a "pretty sweet" job to live there. My job is far from sweet and I've lived in Walnut Creek (and other parts of the Bay Area) on my own for years.
I would not commute from Walnut Creek to Davis though. The traffic on 80 is often horrendous through Fairfield and Vacaville and it doesn't seem to matter when you go. Don't do it!
