Not worth it IMO.

The entire point of transferring up is to have better job prospects at OCI. You already have a job lined up, so there's really no reason to transfer.

You have much more control over your schedule during 2L and 3L so try to accommodate your commute better next year. See if your school has any externships available where you could work in St. Louis for credit, or cram all your classes into Monday/Tuesday to reduce the number of days you have to commute.

The comfort of a shorter commute is not worth 100K.

Thank you for your input. Yeah, that's what all my friends and family members are saying -- they don't think it's worth a 100K increase in cost. I'm going to email the school to see if I can rearrange my classes in a different way starting next year, or take summer classes or something.
