Well this girl would like to save some money by not having to pay rent if I don't need to (I haven't lived at home since I was 17, fyi). but the train might be an option, just trying to check everything out.
I would check out the Metrolink Web site and time it out. You'd have to match up the Metrolink and Metro timetables to figure out the length of your commute. At that distance, it may very well be more time efficient to take the train --- and it is almost certainly more cost efficient, given the student discount for monthly passes and the fact that Loyola will pay for half the cost of the pass. Plus Loyola charges $500 for parking pass. I live only 20 minutes away from Loyola, and I'll still be taking the train to save money.
That said, do you really want to live with your folks? That would seem like a HUGE distraction. And do you want to spend three hours of your day commuting? Law school will be busy enough as it is. Yes, you can study on the train, but your concentration will be deeply impaired
I don't think its worth living at home, even if your parents live in LA. I think your grades will suffer from the distractions, and to me good grades are worth more than what you'd save.
Just my two cents.
