    My boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years. We've done long-distance through the majority of undergraduate. He has a job offer and will be moving to NYC when I start medical school. When I apply to medical schools in the area, is it beneficial or risky to include this information in my secondary applications assuming my other reasons for attending the school are well-justified?

      It won’t hurt you to mention it, but it won’t help you either. All medical schools, but particularly those in NYC, are inundated with applications. In fact, 60% of all applicants do not receive a single acceptance. Good luck!
