My impression of Wymount in general is that it is convenient, but not the biggest, nicest, or most comfortable for the money. For 600 bucks and a decent housing search you can find something that will probably be much more comfortable for a family, but it probably won't be as close to the law school.
The majority of the apartments have a "I was built in the 70's feel," but that's probably because they were, and in these older apartments the painted over cinder block look has always made me want to puke.
If you are willing to look for a house or apartment off campus, I bet you'll find something that you'll like more, but if you would rather have the convenience of on-campus sign-me-right-up housing I'd go with Wymount and you probably won't be too disappointed.
For any of you deciding on Wymount, keep in mind that the south part of wymount was built in the 70's, and the north part much more recently. DO NOT LIVE IN WYMOUNT SOUTH if you have the choice of living in North. The complex doesn't differentiate between the two when getting an apartment, so you have to have some initiative in making sure you get north. I would live in Wymount north again, but never in wymount south.
P.S. To be more clear, the south has the cinder blocks painted over (think MTC with painted walls), as where the north apts. are nice and new(er). A steal for the price, hence the difficulty in getting a spot there.
unfortunately my fiance really likes the idea of living at wymount. we haven't toured the apartments yet. one thing that looks attractive is the option to rent furniture for dirt cheap. i don't really want to live there and from what the few people have said on here it sounds pretty bad. lead paint, paper-thin walls, no ac...then again it's seems like a good location. i guess i will find out more next weekend but if there is any more insight you guys can offer i would appreciate it.
