Does there exist a neat area near the law school where one could reasonably survive/enjoy town without a car?
Not a deal breaker, but it's one of my favorite aspects of my current living situation, and I kind of dread a different arrangement (and I don't have a new car in the budget).

I wouldn't want to live without a car, but it's doable.
