hahaha is this true?   nice.  I would also rather hit the bars with reezy than be married, for what it's worth
 

hittin bar w/ reezy and gettin easy nashville girls is way better than a wife any day!  haha!

I'm lucky that my GF will have a nursing degree right around the time I'm heading to LS, so she's ok moving with me and finding a job for her shouldn't be a challenge.

She's from Charlotte and is the spawn of her mother(not a bad thing, actually). I've been floating ideas like Tulane, Bama, UTK, UK, and others. The first question I get everytime is, "How far is that from Charlotte" ::)

In the end, I think we'll probably be engaged by that time, so she'll more than likely tag along wherever I go.

Sigh. The sort-of plan was that she will finish her last year of UG while I am a 1L, and then move wherever I ended up for my 2L/3L. We're both big city people, and my targets were CCN (with H as a far off distant dream.)

I got a Darrow invite e-mail this weekend, and money's a huge deal for me. I don't necessarily want to live in a small place like AA, but Darrow.

She mentioned that she wouldn't come to Michigan with me.  :-\ :-\ :-\ :'(

AA really isn't that small.  You'd be surprised by how many amenities it offers for a city of its size. 
The noobs are so into themsleves you'd think they allready have offers at Tool, Tool, feminine hygiene product & Dumbass LLC

I know the shopping would make her want to kill herself, amongst others.

I'll have to visit it, but I have a sickening feeling it'll be like my hometown of Peoria, Illinois which I despise.

The SO and I went to the same law school out of undergrad.  We both got into some places the other didn't - but she had the far more difficult decision.

neverborn - I think this advice could change your life. Introduce your SO to online shopping. As a new yorker who spent 4 years in the middle of PA, I can speak from experience. AA isn't as scary when you discover eluxury, shopbop, adasa, etc.

I realize that every relationship is different and to each their own.  However, if living in a big city was more important to my SO that living with me, I'd take that as a sign.  Particularly if it was only for ~1.5 years and would help secure our financial future.  I can understand being hesitant but to straight away say "I'm not coming" is odd to me.

When we started talking about it I got a lot of "I dunno baby, lets just see what happens." But now he has progresed to "when we move for law school." It has been a nice changem but I will believe it when I see it.

Next August is still a long ways away.  Be sure you've applied to some schools that take a serious relationship into account.  Apply to a school or two that would let you guys stay put or a school or two that provides adequate job opportunities or something your (potential) spouse would want.  (His/her family is from NY? Apply to 1 or 2 up there.)

For about $300 you can have the option to stay together in a way that lets both of you have opportunities.  It also may be worth putting down multiple deposits (so don't say "no thanks!" to a school until you're sure) to have the options available until later in the game. 

This is something I wish I'd done when I applied for Round 1, and my failure to plan ahead led to Round 2.
