I must admit that throughout my life, my parents have always stressed academics. You basically made whatever sacrifices (sports, personal life, etc.) to make sure you did well in school.
When it came time to choose an undergrad, I chose the best school over the one that was closer to my signifigant other. For my parents, it was a no brainer...and I, none the wiser, thought my relationship would weather the distance. Yea, I was WRONG and my first semester was miserable. Still, after some time, I got over the girl and I did enjoy my time at my undergrad.
Now, I'm faced with a similar situation. Choose the law school close to my gf or choose the school with the better rep. Part of me sides with my upbringing -- going to a better school will open more opportunities, things will end up okay. The other part of me says...stay here and do you remember the *&^% that happened before?
I will make this decison on my own, but I just want to know there are people out there going through the same thing.
