I'm also curious about this. Does anyone have thoughts on getting a meal plan?
Thanks in advance!
I don't know anyone who purchased a meal plan.
I'd venture that most students either eat breakfast in their apartments (cereal, eggs. w/e) or skip it.
For lunch, a lot of people take advantage of the various lunch talks which provide free lunches. If and when you get sick of the same three meals, though, there are a number of decent places to eat near the law school. Coupa Cafe and Russo are popular lunch spots, and the Tressider complex has some good lunch stuff. Also, the new Business School cafe is about a ten minute walk away, but it has great food.
For dinner, eating at home is pretty common, as is (again) Coupa or a few other on-campus dining facilities. A good chunk of students have cars, so it's not uncommon to see people go off campus for food (especially on/near weekends).
