Plus, I think it is worth spending extra money to live in a safe neighbor, so you don't have to worry about getting jumped coming home from the library late at night. Sure, most of the time you will be okay, but I think it's just not worth it to save a few thousand. It's all subjective worth though.
I'm at Temple Law, and the one thing I wouldn't compromise on was a safe location. Also, I wanted a roommate, but not multiple. Especially in Philly, you want to be in safer areas. Sure, there are some areas that aren't too terrible, but the problem with them is that once you're home for the night, you're basically stuck there unless you take a cab. Philly has an awesome nightlife, but not if you can't get to it.
