I am attending college 8 hours away from my hometown and living in Chicago. I currently hold an account with a local bank in my town that doesn't have a branch in Chicago. Is it better for me to open an account with a bank in Chicago and transfer my money so it is more accessible or what?
My parents will be supplying me with some money for living expenses and such and would just be able to send me a check or maybe deposit money in my my new account online. Anyone know the best route to go for this? Thanks!
