Hey, quick question--how far is the Cedar Rapids airport from Iowa City? What method of transport is most convenient/cheap between the two cities?
let's talk apartments!
->best area to live, considering the proximity to the law building vs ppl's satisfaction vs price
if you have any idea, that is.
I was considering that myself too (even though I haven't heard anything from Iowa Law at all, yet). The law school is located west side of the river which is a little bit away from the downtown (but the campus bus is well systematized for those of you who worry and wants to live on downtown or other areas). So if I was coming into Iowa for the first time, I would look into apartments around the hospital area (search google: "seville apts iowa city"). These apts are in walking distance and is priced not bad (I live west side of the city with 2beds and pay $650/mo). Otherwise, I would just go into the dorms (slater, hillcrest).
okay maybe dorms are not the best for grad students b/c of those undgrads, but I would give it a good consideration for its location and all (slater for example is located right next to the law building and has all the things you need like dining hall, school gym/pool, etc.).
oh and the parking isn't good around the law building, so that may be a factor to consider.
