Maybe it is just because I have not been accepted to any other schools yet (Santa Clara does not count till I get the letter in the mail), but I am finding it very easy to picture myself spending 3 years in Nashville studying law.
It definitely does. The low rent is just sucks me in! My fiancee (applying to medical school same cycle as me) has an interview at Vandy Med next month so we are seriously considering it. However we have to look at Penn and Duke and dream about Harvard as well. We graduated from a T5 ranked Ivy undergrad so we don't want to feel like having wasted that. (Not that going to Vandy Law and Med would, but we must consider other options as well) Even if they are more expensive cost of living wise...sigh.
Seriously, less than 900/mo for a 1 bedroom apt that is 800 square feet that is a 5-10 minute drive from campus?! Coming a city living, that is such a bargain.
I live in a city where a 2 bed+2 bath apartment costs less than $900 a month, so I wasn't really impressed with that. But compared to places like NYC/Los Angeles, yeah it's pretty good.
