I don't plan on looking for apartments until the end of June/start of July, but I would also be interested in what other people are finding.
I see myself living a bit further from the school as long as I can find a place close to a train station. Something reasonably priced that would allow my dog <---(see tar) and have some street (or cheap) parking. I don't know the city that well, but I figure that I am probably going to be a 30-45min train ride away from the law school by the time I that reasonably priced place. Not that I wouldn't like to be right downtown, but everything seemed to be out of my price range after a brief look on craigslist.
If anyone has any ideas of what areas I should be checking out, let me know! Also, I wouldn't be opposed to a roommate. Two bedroom places seem to be a better value and would let us be closer to school. Not too picky (guy/girl, non-traditional/just out of undergrad, brewers/cubs fan, etc...). Only requirements are that you are not the world's biggest slob and you like my dog. Let me know if that sounds like you and we can chat.
