Should I leave my boyfriend?
« on: March 22, 2007, 08:23:17 PM »

Should I leave my boyfriend for a better law school?
I got two admission packages in front of me.
One from Tier 1 school-it was my top choice school-8 hours drive
and one from my hometown-local-not so great-Tier 2 law school- where my boyfriend attends.

We've been together for 2 years and plan to get married in near future.
I really want to go to the former school, but at the same time I don't wanna leave my boyfriend behind. Actually, I transfered to another school when I was in undergrad, but I ended up transferring back to my old school because I missed my boyfriend so much.
I'm kinda dependent and emotional.


I know it'd be stupid to choose a guy over my future but I really don't know what really constitues a happy life. Is it money or love?

The boyfriend would want me to go to a better school if I wanted but I know he'd rather want me to stay here and be with him.

What would you do if you're me????

I don't see why you have to choose. Go to the school. If you're meant to be, a long distance relationship for 3 years isn't the end of the world. I've been in a long distance relationship for 4 years now and am not choosing my law school based on my bf. If you think you have to decide between the boy and the school then maybe you shouldn't be together anyway.

I'm in a long distant relationship. My boyfriend told me he would be there waiting at the end of the 3 years. If he is worth it he will be there when you are done.

I loved my BF.  We graduated college and got jobs over 18 hours apart.  After all, we were just dating for 8 months, no need to be crazy serious.  After 18 months long distance, we were engaged.  About another 18 months later he was able to get a new job in my town.  The wedding was 6 months later.  So, we did 3 years apart and ended up happily ever after.  It can work out without sacrificing your T1 school if you want it too.
It's been brought to my attention that boss is my favorite poster  :-*

Tag for potential flirting opportunities.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

I think this question can only be aptly answered after a drunken night of sex with yours truly.
PM for details.
