Not so. There are quite a number of students who do just that and are able to make it part of their daily college routine. I agree it is not the optimal means of getting to class, but we do what we have to do. Think of those that have to commute from the suburbs to downtown Chicago. Many take the train and that means driving, parking their vehicle, ride the train (not a short ride), and then walking a few blocks to work. Insane? Yes but they live with it.
You are right also, Hancher is not close to the law school. But what parking lot that is attainable and under $300 a semester is? (Besides the church parking lot which I agreed was the best alternative if of course it is legitimate)[/quote]
Well, one better solution would be simply taking free on-street parking immediately east of downtown and taking a bus from there. You could also keep a junk bike locked up in that area and use that instead of taking the bus.
