Definitely off. I think it will help me maintain a (very) tiny bit of balance in my life. As much as I anticipate loving my classmates, I just don't want to live in a law school bubble.
Also, I hate dorms. I lived off campus for my last three years of undergrad, and have no desire to go back to dorm life.
Isn't it apartment style, though? Or is it "apartment-style" but really dorm style. The housing information that I've seen has been...ambiguous.
I don't know, actually. It looks like it's at least mostly apartment style, if not entirely. If I were doing student housing, it would definitely be apartment style, because I would only consider it if I got family housing (I've lived with my SO for three years, and really want to keep him around).
I suppose that things like not being able to bring my own furniture, and the awful experience of moving in and out on the same day as everyone else living there, and never actually feeling "at home" are what make off campus housing more attractive to me. There are definitely a lot of advantages to on campus housing, it just isn't for me.
