So I've lived in New York my entire life and was recently accepted to BC Law School. It's been a top choice of mine for a while, so it looks very likely that I'll end up attending this fall. That being said, the school does not provide housing, and I'll have to find somewhere to live.
From what I've been told, students tend to live around the Cleveland Circle stop and various areas around Allston and Brighton. I'd ideally like to be a decent driving distance from the school (in Newton) while not being too far from the city as well.
I essentially have no knowledge of the area; I've really only gone to Boston to watch Celtics games. So if anyone could provide me with any insight into some of the areas I've mentioned, or has had any experience or recommendations regarding good, safe (and not crazy expensive) areas to live around there, I would very much appreciate that.
