*The closer you live to I-285 or another major freeway (I-75, I-85, or I-20), the shorter your commute time.  There are some locations in Atlanta which are relatively close to campus, but if you live 5+ miles off the freeway in that geographic area it may double your commute time.  Take Alpharetta, for example.  If one lives in Alpharetta near GA400, s/he can be at RTS in under 20 minutes, but if one lives ~5 miles away from GA400 it may take 35+ minutes.
