Just wondering how far away from the place you currently call "home" or where you were born/raised you will be when you attend dental school both realistic and optimistic?

For me, my first choice is my optimistic choice. VCU. Richmond from my hometown of Buffalo is about 557.16 miles.

After having been away for seven years, I will be returning to the area where I was raised and my family still lives! Only about 10 miles from school!! Home cooked meals!

Well, if I decide to attend VCU then according to mapquest, about 4,400 miles from my hometown in Alaska. We did the drive in about 8 days.

I think I win.

Detroit area to Morgantown, West Virginia so about a 7 hour drive from where I live.

By they way if you are moving from a warm climate to the NORTH...haha good luck the weather can get really cold in the north. In Michigan the other day we hit about -20 degrees with the windchill! Ouch plus lake affect winds and snow around U of D, Marquette, U of M, and Cleveland.

Being from the north I definately want to head south for some warmer weather! But those are all great schools.

Yeah probably, but I don't speak Russian and there's more mosquitoes in Russia.

2915 miles From NYC to San Francisco..

While were on the subject of long distance moving, what are you guys planning to do with your stuff? Im seriously considering getting rid of anything that cant be shipped in a box or put into luggage.

According to Google Maps, it is exactly 301 miles door-to-door between my home and my dental school. Not too shabby ...

But of course, who wouldn't want an Alaskan what with the whole dental therapist controversy up there? JK...quite a few actually.

Speaking of which, I wonder what's going on right now with that - haven't checked in quite some time.

Whacks bassman :mad:

I thought you said you wanted to be in Virginia because of your husband!?!?

Do you really want to exchange acceptances because I really wanted to hear from VCU and haven't heard a peep? I'd have to go see the school of course, first...

HAHA... you are such a sweetheart! I'm happy with VCU. With my husband, we do have to be down there and to be honest VCU is a better fit for me personally. I will miss my family though...and even if I didnt end up attending UB... it would have been nice to have been accepted by them. That being where I graduated from, it's sort of insulting to not even be seriously considered...and told that flat out. I'm just bitter, not upset. ;)
