I'm now counting my blessings. The next phase of my education, the bridge program, will be an extra 20 miles or so. I was grumbling before, but I think I'll stop now. Thanks for putting this into perspective for me.

To clinicals it could be from one street away from me to no more than 50miles away BUT after looking at the list of places clinicals have been held, it looks as if I'll be driving no longer than 15 minutes. Thats not to say, when my clinicals start, they won't add new places (which, with my luck, WILL be 50 miles)
