The SO and child cannot move with you? Because in your position I would take the T2 with lower tuition. I understand not wanting to spend time away... which is why I ask why they cannot come with.
That may be in the cards later. We talked about finding a place halfway between so we both just commute 30-45 mins a day if it gets too rough. Going into 1L with 5 years of marriage and 11 years together total so we aren't exactly newlyweds who can't be apart.
The problem with just up and moving is we still have the house to dump for a loss, use for storage or rent out. Plus then instead of spending 200-300 a month for a spare bedroom in the local student ghetto just for me we are going to have to find our own place in a nicer neighborhood.
Not to even mention having to find a new pediatrician and a new daycare.
