All I can say is you have your work cut out for you with that commute. 20 miles in normal people world is not that far, but the unpredictability of the combo of freeways between ER and UCLA is a different animal altogether. To make it manageable, I would suggest leaving by 7:00am and planning to study before class everyday. I know it seems harsh, but it means the difference between a 25 minute drive and an hour+ drive. Also, I would plan to escape right after class everyday to avoid the reverse traffic. I don't mean to be negative, but I learned the hard way commuting from Torrance to UCLA my first year there for undergrad.
