I'd be living there the first semester (since its obviously the hardest) and then figured I'd save some money by just making the commute from home the next 2 1/2 semesters. Is this doable/advisable??
This is very feasible. There is also a flex program if you are interested, which starts early afternoon everyday and doesn't have class on Friday. Many of my friends with long commutes went this route. Otherwise, I started at 9:00 two days a week, 9:30 1 day, 11am 1 day, and 2pm one day first semester. My second semester schedule is pretty comparable. I chose to live very close this year, thinking it would make a difference, but I would truly be fine with an hour commute and it wouldn't have had any impact of my studying. It's really a personal decision.
