I'm in a situation some of you may have found yourselves in.

I'm in a long distance relationship now, and I plan on being with this person for a long time, if not forever, but she's applying for IM and I'm going for radiology. She had exactly 1 interview in the city I will most likely be going to, and we have no other cities in common (I'm in MI, she's in TX). Is there a way for her to transfer mid-PGY1 or end of PGY-1, or even break her contract before starting? This is causing quite a bit of anxiety for us so I decided to use this wonderful resource. Thanks.
