1. How big are the average rooms?
2. Disappointing as the shared bathrooms are, how many people share them?
I can't decide if I want to live in LC; it seems to work out a little
pricier than other options, but the convenience of having meals prepared for you is unbeatable (but the lack of a kitchen is sad -- how will I make brownies?!)
+1, i wanna know too! also, how many 'guest meals' do residents have where we can bring a friend to eat with us?
I am terrible as far as giving a square footage estimate, but the bedroom part of the room is big enough for your twin bed, with space for one twin bed to fit next to it (my boyfriend and I actually did this when I went to visit because we couldn't both fit in his twin bed, so we used an extra mattress and laid them side by side and they filled the entire room). The closets vary from room to room--- his is EXTREMELY small (one shelf, one bar for hanging clothes about 4-5 feet across), but the people across the hall have closets double that size. The living space is much less cramped than the bedrooms (maybe 12x15 ft or so? I have nooo idea), and after looking at the pictures entchen posted, looks like those people did a lot more with their space than my boyfriend and his roommate have done, which definitely makes a difference. With just the 2 desks, a couch, and a TV, it can look a little desolate. As far as bathrooms, I think it may vary by block depending on whether people are in doubles or singles, but in his block the bathroom is on the second floor and has 2 shower stalls, 2 bathroom stalls, and one sink, shared between the 6 rooms in their block so maybe 10-12 guys? Each room also has a little sink/mirror area in the hall space between the bedrooms and living area, which they use to brush teeth, shave, etc.
I wish I would've thought to take pictures when I was there last semester, but if we don't get to see the inside of the rooms during ASW I will be sure to take some pictures of his room then to post on here. Like entchen said, not terrible
but also nothing compared to the gorgeousness of the exterior!
As far as guest meals, non-residents can pay to eat at the lawyer's club, but it is super expensive (I want to say like $8-10 or something for lunch/dinner). I think law students not living in the lawyer's club can get a meal plan though.
Hope this helps!
