I just wanted to know what people's opinions were on commuting. I've been accepted to York and UofT accelerated programs, but I'm having quite a hard time trying to decide whether I should commute or not. Its pretty expensive to live downtown toronto, but commuting from mississauga would take me about an hour and a half everyday, each way. I would also have to use a combo of driving, bus, and subway... which is really annoying...
the commute to york is a bit easier for me, its just one GO bus. but is it really do-able considering the compressed intense schedule? anybody know of people who are currently commuting and their thoughts on it?
I did my 4yr undergrad at uoft st.george n live in brampton so my commute is about 1hr 30 min n honestly it really wasnt that bad n time goes by really quickly. The only issue I had with commuting is the cost.
i got accepted to uoft nursing so i'll be doing it for another two yrs but i'm used to it. While york may only be one bus, i think you should also keep in mind that the uoft campus is literally right around the corner from several hospitals (sick kids, toronto general, mount sinai, princess margaret and toronto rehab), whereas york is really only in close proximity to one (sunnybrook), so either way a significant amount of travel will be involved. I just dont think you should base your decision on commute because they're pretty comparable in terms of travel times and cost. It'll all be worth it in the end.
