So, I'm in a very serious relationship in the DC area. The relationship is very important to me and I'm trying to look at the long-term aspect of this whole thing and not just the next three years. Is anyone else out there considering going to a "lesser" school because of a relationship?
Here's the low down: I'm already in at Catholic in DC and have put my deposit down. However, I'm waitlisted at American and Washington & Lee right now. I've got it worked out with my girlfriend that I would go to either of these schools over Catholic if I were to get in and that I would probably go to W&L over American.
Now here's the other thing, I'm still waiting to hear from a few schools UPenn, UNC, and BU. Obviously, we've discussed that UPenn is a no-brainer (I'm not getting in anyway), but if I were to get in, it's too good of an opportunity to pass up. UNC I'm no longer interested in. But the problem lies in getting into BU. BU is a bit further away from DC and more so a flight rather than a drive if we want to see each other with any regularity.
If I were to get into W&L, BU, and AU I'm thinking the compromise is W&L right now. We've also discussed that BU is a better opportunity for me over Catholic down the road. However, we keep running into conflict when it comes down to BU vs. AU.
Any thoughts? Anyone running into a similar quandary?
