Stay out of blind spots.
I know this is difficult in Interstate traffic but it sounds like the Corolla was ahead and to the right of you when it began merging. Even in the unlikely occasion of the average driver using the rearview mirror before changing lanes, the relatively narrow forward profile of a motorcycle makes being seen on that rare occasion considerably less likely than, say, a passenger car.
When I am alongside a vehicle in multi-lane traffice, there is no speed limit. I get into the operator's forward field of vision as quickly as possible. In heavy traffic this can become nearly impossible and univited lane company is practically inevitable.
Good luck, ultimatly it will be up to your own alertness and reflexes for successful daily commute.
