As for Victor vs. on-campus, most people pick one of the two. Victor is more expensive, but it's also significantly nicer (and you can get a studio/1 BDR if you don't want a roommate). Go take a look at both if it's feasible. They are also building new grad apartments, but they won't be ready until Fall 2012.
Which did you choose and why?
Also, roomate or no roomate?
I live at the Victor and have a roommate. Roommate/No roommate depends. I split a 1 BDR, so it saves money (seriously the rooms are ginormous, so it works), but no one else I know does it and building a wall isn't possible because of the ceilings. Next semester I will probably live alone, but am not sure at this point (might be at the Victor, might be off-campus in the 'burbs; there are a few things up in the air right now). Personally, I'm glad I didn't go with the dorms, but mostly because I've been out of school for a few years and didn't want to feel like I was surrounded by law school 24/7, but plenty of people like the dorms, at least for 1L because you don't have to deal with buying furniture. If you have more specific questions about the Victor, feel free to PM me
Roommates, again, depends on your preference. I don't think it makes a difference either way.
If you are really money tight and can deal with commuting, there are also places in Collingswood/Haddonfield/etc. near the PATCO stations which will basically take you right to the law school. You can find some really cheap options this way, but I preferred to be very close to school 1L year and I like to go home during the day if possible. Some people commute from even further out in South Jersey and live with their families, etc. So, again, if you're from the area and want to save money it's another good option.
