Since I still have two cents (finals are coming up), I'll share them.Though I am not involved in tons of extracurricular's, I can say that there is a definite advantage to living close to law school. I am 7 minutes away from mine. And it's great.Forget a book? No problem. Need to do some research? No problem. Friend calls you up to study? Done. Not to mention, I can leave between classes and still make it back.Ideally, living on campus of your law school, when possible, is the way to go. 60 miles will take an hour and a half each way out of your day. That's 3 hours a day that you can't study, relax, hang out with family and friends, review your notes, etc. It is not worth it. You will not have the chance to know people and will miss out on alot of the bonding that happens at law schools after classes.There are students who live 20 miles or so from my law school and they have very little family time and virtually no social life with the other students, which is sort of sad....Good luck!

QuoteRe: 60 mile commute to LS. Am I nuts?yes. You could stand to move the 6th grader with you... but don't move the eldest just before his senior year of highschool.
