I'm curious, lic, how far away is home? I'm debating living at my parents' for 2L and/or 3L, but their house is about an hour from campus, and I'm a bit nervous that's going to be far enough away to impact studying/extracurriculars.
About the same as you, roughly 45 minutes. But its all back roads, on a good day I can make it there in 1/2 hour. I'm a grandma type driver, I know friends who zoom and make it there in 20 minutes with traffic. Imma be a part-time student so living near the school is not too much of a concern for me.
Plus after living 4 years with roomies in an apt, it's nice to move back home to a big bedroom and not pay grocery bills etc.
