With traffic, I'd say you're close, but I'd lean toward 45 minutes in the morning. The evening traffic is typically worse going back that way, but you can just wait that out by studying in the library or something. You can take side streets if the 10 is really backed up and get the same results. I've never lived in Santa Monica, but friends who do seem to pay around $1200 for decent places.
$1200 for a one bedroom? Not a studio? In Santa Monica? Really???
Sorry -- they are studios. My bad ;;
