If you're from a small town, WS is happening. If you're from a big town, WS is the sticks.
Good restaurants, decent bar scene. Lots of stores in the mall, not sure how the shopping is. You're usually only about 10-15 minutes from where you want to be.
Like any town there are places you would rather not go. Some apartment complexes have shit tenants and a little crime, others are quiet and safe. Rent is cheap here, compared to where I'm from.
Reasonably progressive alcohol laws, so if you're into craft beer you can get most of what you want (Dogfish 120 is a notable exception I think).
Wake has a beautiful campus, but you won't ever see it. Worrell is its own little world. By the time you graduate, the business school will be moved out and you'll have the whole building to yourselves.
Do you happen to know of good apartments close to the law school? I'm from a big city, but I'd love a change of pace; sounds pretty awesome from your description.

Thank link will definitely be useful, but it's a lot to digest.
There are a number of apartment complexes around campus. They'll take you to some of them if you show up for househunt. I live in one of the Crownes. Its too expensive (760 a month, 1 BR, no utilities included) but its clean, quiet, the staff is attentive (my fridge went out, they had someone out to fix it within a couple of hours). There are other complexes really close, like the Pines and the Corners.
Honestly, I would recommend trying to get a house or an apartment on Brookwood Drive. It's less than 10 minutes from the law school by foot and dirt cheap (a buddy of mine gets a 3 BR for less than a grand)
