That's not too far. I estimate 30 minutes from locking your door to sitting in class. Plenty of people walk that distance. I don't know a soul who lives south of the river, but you'll be close to your 1L job if you stay in Chicago and work in the Loop.
For others: if you want quality/value near campus, you need to find a condo that an owner is renting out. Those are hard to find, but they're out there on craigslist and they are the absolute best value in my experience.
