Hi, I know that there are several threads about LDR and relationships in general in medical school, but I was hoping to get a more updated (if it is at all) and more modern perspective, as it seems like a lot of the threads were from a while back! It's my first time posting here (I've lurked without a membership for a bit) but I am a pre-dental student. My boyfriend of almost 2 years is going to be going to medical school literally 30 min away by bus from me, so it won't be a LDR next year, my final year. What I was wondering is, how hard is it to be in a relationship with a 1st year medical school student? We are in a serious and committed relationship and have met parents, etc. I will most likely be busy with my final year + interviews and other normal college activities/academics, but are the stories of medical students having only one hour of free time per day true? Also, what are your thoughts on dental school students dating medical school students? This might not be the perfect place to ask, but are they similar enough that it would still be a very busy schedule on both ends? I am hoping to go to the same school (except in dentistry), or somewhere in the area, but we are also aware that there is always a possibility that I might not be able to be in the area! Thank you for your replies Sorry if this was a it long!
