What are you looking for? Apt downtown? Apt within short bus range that's newer/quieter/nicer?
I would prefer newer/quieter/nicer and would REALLY prefer dog friendly so my puppy can visit. Got anything like that?
I checked out a bunch of places and just signed a lease at Woodbury. It's a nice complex and very popular with grad students (particularly MBA's and law students). Let me know if you have any questions.
You will like Woodbury. A couple of people in this thread have mentioned issues with noise. We lucked out and have a very quiet building. I would think noise issues are going to be the same basically in any of the mentioned apartment complexes. Sometimes you will get lucky and have quiet neighbors, other times you are not so lucky. That is just part of living in an apartment. We have had no noise problems.
I think the main advantage of Woodbury is the convenience to the law school. The number 6 bus stops right at the apartment complex and drops you in front of Hutchins. I did not want to live somewhere that I had to transfer buses to get to school, or had to drive to a lot and then catch a bus. It has been very easy and convenient getting to and from classes this year.
