Right now I'm considering Pinnacle Ridge, as it seems to be the place where all the law school students live, or Alexan Place. These two seem pretty affordable as well, especially if you get a two bedroom apartment.
I'm going to send my deposit early next week.
I was told not to go with Pinnacle Ridge by a current law student, and I am going to listen to that advice. I am looking at about 5 places right now. I think Alexan Place is one of them (or was it farms...).
I would also be interested in what you have heard about Pinnacle Ridge. These were just a few preliminary places. If you wouldn't mind would you also list the others you are considering. I have a little apartment book, but some of the places are definitely too expensive.
I will do you one better, I will post the links to all the places I am currently looking at.http://www.beechlakeapartments.com:80/a ... S&pid=1877http://www.berkeleysouthpoint.com/
<--Don't know how much this one is, so I am not really sure if it is in the running or not.
I could very well add more to that list soon, but I have to start somewhere.
The person I talked to about Pinnacle Ridge did not like the apartments (the places where you live, not everything else on site). I think she thought they were a little run down and old, especially for the price. I don't really remember much else, but she was very persuasive when I talked to her.

If I cannot find a good roommate I guess I can live alone, but I would much rather have one. The main reason is (of course) price, but I may have my dog with me next year and it would be nice if someone else could watch him if I have to fly somewhere for an interview or something like that (more of a concern the following two years). Also, living by myself I get lonely. But I figure that is not as big a deal next year since what time I have to spend at home will probably be sleeping, eating, working, or playing with the pup.
But it really comes down to price. A two bedroom is sooooo much cheaper, and that way I don't have to furnish the whole thing myself
^^ Oh and my 1000th post is right up there.
