    Personally I would say no.. 1 hour 15 can easily turn into 2 hours if you have a lecture at 9am and you find yourself stuck in all the rush hour traffic =/ You say you're more interested in study but when you're spending 2+ hours in the car everyday thats time you could be studying..

    I agree, 1hr15 is going to be on a good day so you may regularly be spending 3-4 hours in the car... depending on your course this may be every day of the week, it may also be 4 hours travelling for a 2 hour lecture. At that point I'd imagine you're likely to not always attend. You're wasting all that time which could be spent studying.

    I had to do a 1 hour 30 journey to work. It was fine going to work because it was quiet but at rush hour, it took me over 2 hours to get home. With traffic (which is likely to happen), that's almost 4 hours of commuting a day. You can do so many more things in that time like studying, socialising or hitting the strip club, whichever appeals to you the most.
