I don't want to have to deal with living above/below a landlord...I have had bad experiences with that.
hrm.... It's not my specialty, what with me having a house in the area... but I remember hearing reletively good things about L.C. Apartments (near W. Hartford Center), and Clarendon Apartments, which is near Quaker Lane and Farmington Ave. Maybe start searching there?

We should put together a restaurant list!! I was a broke college student when I was last in Hartford, so my restaurant skills are small. Also yay Corner Pug! Love that place.
Hey Snapdragon! That is a great idea - thankfully I am what they call a "serious foodie" and amateur cook, so I've got a pretty good list of places off the top of my head.
Elaine's - great little egg joint
Mo's Midtown - classic diner for anyone working in hartford.
Wood and Tap - Great burger joint close to the school.
Corner Pug - my personal favorite for chips and beer.
Reuben's Deli - Deli... Good pastrami sandwiches.
Pho Boston - Vietnamese, great Pho
Restaurant Siam - Thai, good takeout
Harry's Pizza - EXCELLENT Pizza.
Arch Street Tavern - Good food, Great Jazz every monday.
Lox Stock and Bagels - Best bagels in town.
Ginza's Japanese Cuisine - My personal sushi-ya of choice, and I/we WILL be going there at some point. Awesome sushi, good pricing, and the owners are great.
Black Eyed Sally's - Great barbecue, good blues artists and jazz nightly. Very popular.
Max-a-Mia - one of the many restaurants owned by the Max restaurant group (you'll learn about them when you get here), good italian food.
Max's Burger - another one of Max's... good, but a little more expensive.
Chengdu Asian Bistro - probably best Chinese in Hartford area... but I haven't really looked around.
Plan B Burgers - Great bar and burger joint.
AC Peterson Farms - For that 12AM, "Really want pancakes moment".
Tapas Mediterranean Cafe - Good Gyros, tapas, and so such
The Elbow Room - used to be a good grill place, but has gone downhill recently.
Ichiro Sushi - Another good sushi joint, though a little more expensive.
The Firebox - A nice upscale bar in hartford, good for lunches and happy hour.
Max Downtown - Soo Expensive, and so worth it.
Trumbull Kitchen - supposed to be excellent, but I've heard uneven things over the last year.
The Pond House Cafe - excellent food, somewhat expensive, but great for romance.
Feng Asian Bistro - Probably the best sushi in the area, but I wouldn't go there except for very, very special occasions. Otherwise you'll go broke in a matter of hours.
Bestito - Fantastic and authentic mexican food, but pretty expensive. Worth the price, but not very affordable on the "law school" budget.
Bin228 - An expensive but high-class wine-tasting restaurant. (another passion of mine)
Cuvee - another expensive wine-tasting bar
Hrm... that's all I can think of... if people think of others, or want to know about something specific, I can probably expand on it.
