I was hoping to get some input on housing. I've read through all the old threads- but I was wondering if anyone can telling me about Huntington Village Townhouses vs. The Jefferson?
Thanks so much!
If you mean the Jeffersonian Apartments on Arlington Blvd., they're one of the closest places to the law school you can possibly live. Not far walking distance from Barracks Road Shopping Center and its two 24-hour grocery stores, either, just a couple blocks downhill. I've been in the Jeffersonian, and it's rather nice; the two-bedroom units have enough of a living/dining room area that we were able to have a 25-30 person Thanksgiving potluck dinner in there and only feel slightly cramped.
Huntington Village is on the other side of Ivy Gardens, so that's going to be a long walk. It's a doable walk, but one you're not going to want to do on times like this week where it's in the 30s and raining or snowing. People in Ivy Gardens are considered too close to the law school to get a parking permit; I don't know if that applies to Huntington Village or not. I've never been in the Huntington Village myself, almost all the 1Ls I know either live on Arlington Blvd. or in Ivy.
(Jeffersonian also disqualifies you for a parking permit, but there you live closer than the Blue Lot where a lot of 1Ls end up parking anyway.)
