So what were your plans if you got accepted earlier? How were you going to get there since it is 2 hours away? Not trying to be sarcastic, just curious. Perhaps you can try to suck it up and drive until you get your financial aid. OR if your lucky, maybe when you start classes you can get lucky and find someone to carpool with. Then during that time until financial aid comes in you can look for places to stay. But if it were me I wouldn't move (too much hassle, too uncertain, and too stressful) I think you would be better off just getting a new car.
