most schools allow pt to transfer to ft. I am from So Cal so I know long commutes but that is one hell of a commute. If you can use the time on the train though to study then it seems reasonable, but I think I would be inclined to not go to class with that type of a commute. If you can get yourself to class and use the time on the train to study then I say go for it. Plus if you get burned out after a year you can always move closer.
