How long is the commute from there to the law school - and what's the mode of trans? If I end up at NU, I anticipate living in that area.
I drive because I have an included garage parking spot at my place (parking in the ramp near the law school is 300ish for the school year of 400ish for a calendar year).
However, when I do take public transit, the redline (L train) gets me to school in 20-30 minutes. The stop downtown is about a 5-10 minute walk from the school. I find it to not be a bad commute at all. There is also a great bus system if you live close to the lake that goes express and can get you there as quickly.
Cool. I'll have a car, but I hate driving, so I'd prefer to take the train when possible.
Second question, re: the neighborhood you live in. I'm pretty sure I know why.
Do you find it to be a major distraction from studies - not only the general noise/nightlife scene going on around you, but also your desire to go out and be a part of it?
ETA: Along those lines, what are your thoughts on th NU scene and Chicago more generally?
