Depends on you. Hughes=much cheaper. CT Terrace is like 1600 for 1 bd (studios less, but they will go ultra fast) whereas it's prob 500 cheaper at hughes. That being said, you won't have to share a kitchen with dozens of people at Terrace, will have an on site gym that is part of rent (you have to pay for gym at Cornell if you are in hughes I believe), and is a lot nicer and newer. There's also a shuttle up the hill to the law school and you'll have a little distance from all the madness if you need it. There is def a premium though. If you are debt financing sticker, I probably wouldn't go with Hughes. If you have plenty of money or lots of scholarship maybe consider aging a little more for the comfort and conveniences of Terrace for 1L and see if you can find something in between for 2L and 3Lol.
Btw, CT Terrace 2 bd are much cheaper and quite nice. I think they are going for about $1000
Where do you go about finding a CT terrace apartment?
Google. Call the office. They will help you get started and are pretty helpful and responsive.
To just add on (I don't live in CT Terrace or Hughes btw)
A lot of your classmates will end up in either CT Terrace or Hughes, but if you are looking for affordability (under $1,000), there are certainly other options that are close to the law school in CTown that are solid options (read: not slum houses). As Trippel said, CT Terrace is solid if you want a real comfy set up, but you'll have to shell out $$$. If money isn't an issue (whatever the reason) I'd certainly recommend it for the amenities and convenience. Otherwise a simple craigslist search will yield some solid and affordable options.
procrastinating on my memo, so feel free to shoot any questions you may have at my general direction.
