I am from Michigan and am considering attending law school at the University of Richmond. I have spent quite a bit of time in northern VA but am unfamiliar with Richmond. If anyone could provide insight into the city, rent prices for college students, and ideally, the law school, I would appreciate it.

Rent is very affordable compared to Northern Virginia. Higher than normal vacancies mean you can find a great deal.

The area around University of Richmond is very nice, but a bit quiet for my taste (I'm more of a downtown/Fan District kind of guy myself)...but its still very nice.

The campus is BEAUTIFUL...I have a good friend there and I visit all the time.

The city is a nice city overall....From U of R you're kind of removed from the rest of the city (maybe it just feels that way for me) but its only a 10 minute drive from downtown and its on the bus route (if you want a cheap alternative to having to pay for downtown parking)

From what I understand the U of R Law School is pretty good. Its on my short-list of graduate schools for either law or business, though I must say I haven't done as much research about its law program as I would like.
