Hi everyone, I have a fairly difficult question for you. I was lucky enough to receive acceptances to UCSF and the UCSF/Berkeley Joint Medical Program in the past week. So far so good, right? However, I live in Virginia. Most importantly, my mother who is ill (probably terminally) also lives in Virginia. If this wasn't a factor, I would without a doubt go to UCSF. As it is, I'm pretty worried about being 3000 miles from home at a time like this. Do any of you have experience with a situation like this? Do any of you go to a medical school far from home, and if so how often do you get to see your family? Any suggestions/stories/etc are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
