For me this is a big part of why I want to move out. I sort of have the opposite parent situation that you have, I have don't have a good relationship with them in the sense that I disagree with them socially on basically every issue, and I have no respect for my father particularly for many things he's done in my life. This leads to constant fighting wherein my father will threaten to kick me out on the street.
Being so far away from the school is another important issue, I hate being at home so I tend to do most of my studying at the library. After a long night of studying I hardly feel like commuting home for an hour, where upon getting home I get interrogated by my parents because "there's no way that I was at the library all that time".
I feel like being so far away from the school would also hamper my ability to make important connections in law school. Since law school is a relatively small faculty, building a network of connections in school with people that will be my future colleagues, I think, would be very valuable to me. Having to commute so far to get home to a place where there's no transit access would likely mean me skipping out on many socialising opportunities.
Lastly, as I've mentioned, I am in quite a serious relationship and she also lives quite close to the university so moving closer would save a long commute for both of us multiple times per week. For those that have wondered why we don't simply move in together, she is from a rather traditional family, and they would be quite disappointed if we lived together before we are, at least, engaged.
Also, since this seems to be somewhat of a salient point in this thread, I am 22 years old.
