Is the love based on looks? Those will degrade over time, while diploma paper will stay pristine for decades.

Tell her to look for job near the Cambridge area. New Haven's school system may not be that good though.

This is the correct answer.

Next step: Write a Yale 250 essay saying that you want to go there because your girlfriend lives there.

No. I wouldn't do it, unless the best school you got into happened to be where the "love of your life" is teaching.

You've got to think about what's important in life, man.

And then you have to think about the foolishness of the concept of "love."

depends on where shes moving to. The teaching field is very tight right now- and unless shes willing to live in a meh location or take a meh job she may have trouble. especially right out of UG. Her best bet will be to get some subbing experience for a year or 2, get a master degree then shed have a better chance.

Teaching jobs aren't that plentiful right now. My wife's a teacher, and budgetary cuts, etc. are really cramping job prospects. There's one school district a couple of hours from where I live that might have to lay off close to 20% of its teachers.

Hey, those meh location jobs will pay off her student loans, though. Well, the fed gov't will if she teaches there long enough.

A teaching job could be pretty hard to find right now, keep that in mind. And what if she hates it and quits?

TLS is the exact wrong place to look for advice on your love life. You're not really asking for law school related advice. Just know that law school will put the squeeze on your time, temperament, energy and general well-being. Not an easy thing for any SO.
