    Is it feasible to live ~2 hours from your SO?

    The town where I am set to begin residency is rather small. My wife has been working and building her career for the past 5 years and I’m afraid there may be less opportunity for her to flourish. We’re going to be about 1.5 hours from a major metropolitan area where she can really prosper +...

    Dating a College Student While in Med School?

    Hi there, My current girlfriend is 2 years behind me in school, so she will still be an undergrad for my first 2 years of med school. How common is it for med students to date college students? I'm aware that most of my peers will be older than me, given that I'm not taking time off, so I'm...

    Pre-med/Med student LDR Tips?

    I am a third-year pre-med undergrad (planning on applying summer 2019 and starting med school in Summer 2020 if all goes well) and my SO is starting M1 (4.5 hour drive from me) tomorrow.

    Choosing to go for additional courses in person

    I have a bit of a dilemma that I really need to make on my own but can't seem to grasp both options. I have applied to vet school already for Fall 2018 and am currently taking 13 credits online through CSU while working full-time. This semester, I am taking my last remaining prerequisite as well...

    Long Distance Relationship in Med School/Couples Match

    My boyfriend and I will be attending separate med schools in the fall 2 hours away from each other (not super far but still). We've been dating for 2 years and are planning on doing the couples match together. I was wondering if anyone had experience with a long distance, long term relationship...

    Mount Sinai and two-body problem: options (post-bacc, lab tech, Masters) for gf

    Hi all, I'm leaning towards Mount Sinai's MSTP program. Problem is, my girlfriend (wants to get her PhD in Microbio) only applied to one NYC school (Columbia) and got rejected. She's most likely getting into a Baltimore school, so long-distance is our back-up plan. We're fretting about our...

    how do you factor in your relationship when choosing your med school?

    Okay so I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place for this thread but I figured it had to do with significant others so I chose it. I was accepted into two medical school programs. The first a DO very close to home and close to where my boyfriend goes to grad school. 4 months later, I was...

    Pre-med dating not med-student

    My boyfriend and I had already been together 4 years before I decided to begin my pre-medical studies. Where I am studying undergraduate now we are only 3 hours away, so it allows him to visit me ~once a month and it works out really well. We've been able to make it work so far, but I'm worried...

    Dental Students at UB - Quality of Life?

I've lived in Buffalo before (after graduating from college elsewhere), so I know what I'm getting into with regards to location. I live with my...
