Duke is 4-5 hours... not too bad but still quite a drive and we have already done long distance when he was still in school at... get this... MICHIGAN!! So last summer i convinced him to give up a job offer in Michigan to come back home, only to find out 6 months later that I got in to MI with a scholly. So needless to say, he's sore about MI. So naturally Duke seemed to be a front runner unless I heard good news from UVA. But the more I hear about UVA and talk to people who are currently there, the more I like it. Basically I'm just totally lost and unfortunately I haven't visited the schools yet so I don't really know which I would like best.
Sounds like UVA is much more convenient. If you and your bf are that serious, you should talk with him about this and not us. Would you be really upset if UVA accepted you with no scholly $$$? Or would it be a bigger pain to relocate to Michigan/NC?
You probably do not want to do a long distance relationship for another three years. Talk to your boyfriend.
