Are jobs so scarce in your area that you have no choice but to drive? Did you take the first job you were offered and didn't consider the drive? Did you hear wonderful things about your school which made the commute worth it? Just wondering about some reasons for the commute. I'm trying desperately to avoid it. I like to drive, but gas prices are horrid and I have a son to get to school on days my husband has to be at work by 7AM.
