I'd love to know what the price/quality/size situation is. Are you looking at 1br? Studios?
Definitely check out the challenges/questions thread for ideas of places to see where a lot of students live.
The prices are steep in Streeterville, but the way I figure it, if I'm taking out 77K in loans for year one alone, I might as well pay an extra 3-4k to live near campus.
I actually checked out (listed in order of cost) 860 DeWitt, Lakeview Plaza, McClurg, and 420 Ohio when I was there for Diverse Admit Weekend. Didn't get a chance to check out Onterie or The Streeter (Both out of even my adjusted my price range) but if anyone has questions feel free to fire away...
Basically price/quality/size are all directly correlated in the order they are listed, although McClurg definitely had the best gym/rec center.
If anyone has any more specific questions feel free to ask...
