You'd be paying probably $150+/mo on the metro, how much are you saving on rent by being out there? A ~45~ minute commute isn't going to be the worst thing in the world, but it's kind of pushing the limit of tolerable IMO. It definitely won't be a problem for getting to class/academically but could be an issue if you're worried about being social or plan on being on campus late a lot.
Are students often on campus for social events after 11 pm? I would have to leave to get back on the train around 11:45 (I understand this may not be the safest option). Additionally, I will have my car at my apartment. Georgetown's website says the fee for parking is $8.40 a day. I could drive on days that I know I anticipate being there late. Do you think that is practical? Alternatively, I'm thinking of going home and grabbing my car for the evenings I will be on campus late, time permitting, since parking is *free* after 5 pm.
I've literally never been on campus *that* late and in the rare event that you are I'd just lyft home in that instance anyway. Anytime you'd be out that late it would be social for sure and most likely not on the campus but out at bars. Commuting home then driving back for free parking would suck don't do that. Otherwise if you're not commuting averse this is a fine plan depending on how much you'll be saving since like I said you'll be paying a lot on the metro. I'm pretty unfamiliar with Hyattsville but PG county generally has a pretty bad rep if you're unfamiliar
