    <-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to a conversation between two students.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> By the way, Frank, I heard you got a summer research position with Professor Davis.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Uh-huh. But I've got a problem.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, well, since I didn't hear from her for so long, I assumed I didn't get the position.
    So I didn't apply for a dorm room for the summer.
    I'm afraid it's too late for that now.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, the deadline for campus housing applications has already passed.
    So what do you gonna do now?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, I can stay with my parents.
    They live two hours from here an' so I thought I could drive, uh, commute to campus every day.
    I know my mom and dad would be happy to have me over for a few weeks.
    And most of my old friends'll be home for the summer, so in a way it'd be fun.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I understand.
    But you'd spend quite a bit of time on the road going back and forth. Won't you get tired?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, that thought did cross my mind.
    The other thing I could do is rent an apartment off-campus.
    Besides being much closer to work, I'd also save tons of money on gas.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Uh-huh, but then you'd have to pay rent.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> I know. [Audible sigh] There's always something, isn't there.


The students discuss a problem and two possible solutions. Briefly summarize the problem. Then state which of the two solutions you prefer and explain why.
