Hopefully I will be going off to medical school next year, but my boyfriend may not be able to move with me because of his job. Depending on where I get in (if I get in) I will be somewhere between 6 to 12 hours away. We have been together for a year now. So far our relationship has been a long distance one; he lives 6 hours away from my school, but I am able to take every other weekend off to spend time with him and I spend most of my school vacations with him. I am assuming that once I get to medical school I will not have the time to be able to take every other weekend or even a weekend once a month off to see him. Not to mention the stress of being in a long distance relationship. It already causes some stress for me now only being able to see him every two weeks and not whenever I want to or need to. I can't imagine the stress of medical school and the stress of not being able to see him at the same time. I've been doing this for a year and the thought of having an extra 4 years of this is maddening. Am I going to have to choose between the two most important things in my life? Has anyone else been through a similar situation or have any words of wisdom for me?
