I'm going to be starring law school in the Fall, and I'm considering going to my local law school (UB).
I live about ~45 min away, and I commute for undergrad. But, for law school, I suspect that I will have to spend long hours after class studying in the library after hours and on the weekends. I would also like to participate in mock trial and/or a law review journal. This being said, it will be add a significant cost to get an apartment. I think it would be easier in general to be able to have a home base to bounce back and forth to between classes, but of course my father disagrees and thinks I should just sit in the library between/after class, then come home after I'm done.
What should I consider and what do you think I should do?
