This person is an ex for a reason. Unless something drastic has changed, go with the school that gives you the most options.

An ex is influencing my decision too...

I'm moving across country to finally bolt that coffin shut.

I was just wondering if anybody else was in a similar situation of leaving someone for law school or if anybody had similar stories to tell.

For those that wanted to know more about my personal situation: yes, we've talked about marriage. No, she wouldn't move (residency program). If I attended SMU, it would be for reasons mostly outside of my dynamic with her.


As in the program that follows four years of med school or as in she really wants in-state tuition. If the former, get your a** down to Texas, buddy

If you won't be significantly worse off closer to the old flame then I don't see how it could hurt too much. It might work out, you never know! I would go for it, honestly.

You and your education come first. Your ex can leave you just like she did the first time. Your JD isn't exchangeable. Think with your head. Don't go back to your vomit. Tread carefully, you are about to make one of the most important decisions in your life.

Look, you can always hook up with her when you are back in town. Just make sure you are more awesome than her husband or her children. This has not been a problem for me.
