How far away are the schools from your family/bf? I might be a different opinion here but if one school is 6 hours away vs 8 hours for another, I doubt that means you will actually get to go home and visit that much more frequently. If it's like an hour vs 3 hours than that could be significant. But, if they are both 5+ hours away, it will be difficult to visit home no matter what. Honestly, it sounds like you really want to go to LSU and I would reflect on that. Make this decision for yourself and what would make you happy! Sometimes it is easy to get caught up pleasing others when your own feelings are just as/more important!
