Commuting between the 2 is just generally a bad idea. I live NE of Atlanta, and the traffic will be terrible. I suggest if you need to go to school in Athens, you live there. Apartments are cheap and you can see each other on weekends. I am hoping to get into UGA and my wife will stay in Atlanta, thereby minimizing each of our commutes. Traffic is terrible... As stated earlier in this thread, I would not be surprised to have 2 hours each way for each of you. I honestly suggest you get 2 different apartments and spend time together on weekends.
