In either case, there will significant impact on your normal activities from either the extended commute or from being far away from home. Therefore, you should put that part aside and try to determine what else differentiates the opportunities. As you are just a sophomore, you will have another opportunity for an internship after your junior year. This internship would be a good opportunity to determine for yourself if you are comfortable with the career path that you have initially chosen. Therefore, I would lean towards the finance opportunity. If after this internship, you decide that you would like to go in a different direction, you still have time to make such a change.
