Yeah after thinking about the amount of travel and the sheer unpredicability (wait wrong word) certain calamity of Philadelphia traffic and weather I think i'm just going to lease a dorm room for the year, if we're spending 28k for tutition what's another 4k on housing.  So if anyone else is living in Shipley or i forget the other hall I'll see you there. 

Good idea.  I just finished my 1L year after driving 85 miles a day to and from Widener.  It did not matter what time i would leave my house, the earlier I left, the worse traffic would be.  I found that the only chance i had of getting to my 10am classes on time was to leave exactly at 9am, missing rush hour.  Sometimes it would take me 2 1/2 hours if there was ever an accident or construction.  It was a horrible experience. (the commuting, not the school!)  Live as close as possible!
