I applied to schools on both the east (where we live) and west coast (top choice school), I decided to let college admissions be the deciding factor in where I was going. Surprise surprise, I’m staying on the East Coast and will just be commuting into the city which is what I currently do (pre-Covid)

Assumed we would end up LDR for the experience (she’s a year ahead of me on the grad school journey) but we ended up at the same school. Agreed going into both app cycles we would not let it influence our choices.
