PSU is definitely in my top three; I'm just waiting to hear back from BU and GW. The town is incredibly cheap to live in. There's a very good chance I'm ending up there for the upcoming year.
Another thing -- there is university housing all over the place, and to my understanding, there is housing right by the law school (I may be wrong about this - If a student could clarify it, please do!)
If you want more details, PM me! There's not much I can give insight to other than the town and what I saw.
I'm so glad to hear that you had a good time. I hope you could sneak into the school and take a look while you were in town
There is a lot of housing in UP in general because so many students live there. The only official housing for law students that is actually part of the university is the White Course Apartments (I live in them now). They are more expensive than other places in town, but all inclusive and may be a good option if you can't come to State College to apartment shop and you can afford them. There is a bus that runs from right outside them to about a block away from the law school and it is free to everyone.
If anyone does make the commitment to the school I do suggest starting to look for housing ASAP. The places around town fill up very quickly because of the massive size of the student population. Also, don't be afraid to get in touch with 2Ls and 3Ls, on facebook and such, because many of them take 1L roommates.
I hope more of you get acceptances soon! I have my first final this afternoon, so if anyone has any questions about what that is like, I will be able to share soon!
