My only concern is that after spending the last 2 years abroad maybe I should just stick to America for a while. London sorta kills South Bend though, dudn't it?
From someone who did UG at ND, South Bend offers just enough to do so that you don't hate the place, but it's not Chicago, it's not DC, it's barely even a "college town" (though they're trying hard to change it). All you really need is Friday at Finnigans or Oyster Bar and a Saturday football game followed by dinner at Rocco's and a nightcap at the Backer, and you'll love the place. It's an awesome place to be "stuck" at for 3 years, and with it's strong placement in Chicago and DC, there are certainly worse options out there. (Plus the LS is about 200 yards from the stadium.)
