I just applied to two grad schools (masters programs), and am now moving about 15 min drive away to be closer to the school of my choice. It feels like a bit of a rash decision, since I haven't actually been accepted yet, but the apartment I'm moving to is bigger, prettier, and a little cheaper. When I was deciding whether or not to move, I asked friends about their commute time/routine, to establish if what I was signing on for was reasonable as an everyday commute. I got a lot of really interesting responses, and it made me want to learn more about everyone's commute routine. How they travel, how they spend their time waiting if they're taking public transit, how they deal with bad weather if they walk or bike. I'd love to hear more about everyone's commute (or future commute, if you're still in transition). Mine is going to be an 11 minute walk to my bus stop through a nice neighborhood, but some of it will be uphill unfortunately. I don't currently bike, but I'm considering starting since it might cut down the time a little (although maybe not, since there's hills). Once I get to my bus stop, I'll have about a 13 min ride to my stop on campus. Once there, I think the main building I'll be in will be about 4 min walk away. The only thing I worry about is the walk through the neighborhood after dark. It's a nice neighborhood, but the section with my apartment complex is not so nice, and the lighting right at my complex isn't great. :S That's what I most worry about. This is all depending on what program I get into (if any). But this is my ideal future situation assuming I get into my first choice... What's yours?
