Does anyone out there commute a long distance to and from class? If so, how long is your drive? Do you have any advice for someone who may consider commuting a long distance daily (1.5 hours)? Is it worth it? Can it be done....feasibly? Would it otherwise be better to rent an apartment while in school and go home on the weekends? I'm looking for experiences from those who've been there and done that...the pros and cons.

How about for clinical sites? Are they a long distance away, and if so, how do you accomodate staying for the period of your experience? Does the hospital put you up or offer a room to stay, or is it more like find a hotel for the duration?

I'm currently pondering my options, and just trying to figure out the best means of living arrangments.

Thanks, Melanie
