I'm coming from the San Francisco area, where living is obscenely expensive, and I've been so impressed by how reasonable it looks to live in Richmond. I'm considering living in the law dorms, though, for convenience's sake, since they're furnished and I'm not sure what my car situation will be like next year, coming from so far away. Anyone else considering the law dorms or heard anything about them?
I know a few classmates who live in the law dorms.
From what I've heard, you get a few roommates (one person said they had 4 I think). Also, they are on the other side of the parking lot- you're looking at at least a 10 minute walk every day. Other than that, I know nothing. If you are a few years out of college, going back to dorm life might be hard. Also, living with law students will most likely get stressful, especially around exams. And if they are already in your section, you'll either become extremely good friends, or hate them by Thanksgiving.
Just what I've heard. Lots of reasonable places nearby. Not sure what your budget is though.
