<p>Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I wanted to know if you guys could give me a short list of disadvantages/advantages of commuting. I can't get a student loan anywhere, and I have 23k to pay, and being that I can't get student loans, my mom will have to pay that in 10 months, just for my freshman year, so I'm thinking about just commuting, where it'll be 12k less. Besides the fact that you save money by commuting what are some other advantages.? I only live 25 minutes away from campus so it's not that far of a drive.
I just need enough 'info' so I can make my final decision. I start school in less than a month. Thanks :)</p>
<p>Also, I'm looking at my schedule, and on monday/wednesday, I have a class from 10:20 to 11:20, and then my next class on those days would be from 2:50 to 4:20. Would it make sense to you guys to go home during those 3 hours, if I wasn't able to find anything to do in between those classes.?</p>
