Checking in as well, beginning my apartment hunt for next year. Was told today that they haven't firmed up plans on a Laywer's Club replacement yet.
Welcome to the club. Have you found any good prospects? Some of the more popular complexes seem to be: Harbor House, Woodbury Gardens, and Lake Village. A little on the expensive side, however.
Harbor House seemed the nicest out of those three. Not sure I'm ok with being that far off campus though. I'm used to walking in my UG and coming from a place with a similar winter to Michigan I don't trust the buses and roads when I'm on a tight schedule.
The on campus towers (Zaragon, 411, etc. are very nice buy craaaaazy expensive). I found the 4 apartment buildings that U of M is leasing for law students to replace the LC, and right now am considering one of those. Big downside to those is none of them seem to have private laundry, which is one of my neuroses.
I live in HH. Taking the 7 bus and switching to the 6 gets you door to door in about 20 minutes, but it only runs every half hour. In the evening, I walked .4 miles to grab the 7 direct as its longer to transfer because the 6 gets late.
Now, I drive around the block and take the 36 which runs every 9 minutes straight to the LS. You can walk to it (.4 mile) through Lake Village as well. It'd be closer if you were on that end of the complex. My roommate did it last year with no car although it could be an inconvenience at times.
After the 36 stops running, you can get a free cab ride to the lot where it picks up.
