In general, that whole area is pretty safe and within a mile or two of the law school. Places right around Magazine further down river are worth looking at, too. If you get a chance to visit, just drive around uptown a little bit and you'll get a good idea of the areas that you'd like to live. It's really not a big place. Doesn't take long to get your bearings.
And FYI, there are supposed to be some bike lanes added to St. Charles Ave, this spring, so that should help out as well.
Thanks for the info on good places to live, Nianlong. Good luck to others with scholarship details! Tulane is still my best option at this point, and I look forward to checking out NOLA; I continue to hear good things about the city.
