Well, if you fly into C-ville, you could theoretically get a taxi to/from the airport, stay at the hotel on Millmont St., and be walking distance from the law school and Arlington Blvd. It's possible to do the trip without renting a car.
However, to really get a full look around at the community you're going to want to rent a car. Renting a car costs the same either way, and flying into either Dulles or Richmond is going to be cheaper than flying into C-ville in my experience. Plus that'll give you more options looking around for cheap hotels in C-ville instead of having to go for that one on Millmont, which I think is a Courtyard and pretty expensive. Dulles is about two hours away by car, Richmond is an hour away.
Don't fly in and out of Reagan. Just don't do it. Dulles is closer, cheaper, and has more flight options.
