Also is there any way someone could post some pictures or links to pictures of both Ivy and the Jeffersonian?
Did you check out the photos on the Ivy Garden website? http://www.ivygarden.com/apartments_1B.htm#
Click on the link in the middle that says "Model Apartment Interior." You can also check out the different floor plans on the site.
You can make a request to be as close to the law school as possible when you fill out your application. Since Ivy is filled with law and business school students (the business school is right next to the law school), obviously a lot of people will be making this request so the sooner you get your application in, the better. I made the request, but didn't submit an application until early June and am almost as far from the law school as you can get, but the extra distance is not that significant. I'm like a 12 minute walk, whereas the ideal location is probably a 6 or 7 minute walk.
The only time I ever regretted living in Ivy was one morning in November during a torrential downpour. By the time I got to school, my jeans were completely saturated with water and stayed that way for a couple hours. I really wanted to just leave them hanging on a bathroom stall and go to contracts in my underwear, but that wouldn't have gone over well. I learned an important lesson: buy a fucking umbrella (which I still haven't done). You can also occasionally take a gamble and drive to school, but you'd have to pay to park in a metered space if you don't want to get ticketed, and there isn't always one available.
