Depends how much you think distance will impact your relationship. Honestly, I know of this happening in the South- people writing to the admissions committee to ask them to admit their fiancé so that they can stay together. It worked. It wasn't for the same program and wasn't at as competitive of schools. Now that I think about it, it might have been Duke!

OP - marriage and family is the most important thing, we work to live not live to work. That said, you both got into amazing schools - it would be a shame to delay your lives and or pass up on those once in a lifetime opportunities. Do the distance relationship, do not get married until after B school, utilize the time in school to be engaged, it'll be a difficult period but if you overcome it then you both can manage anything as a couple. Also the first year or two of marriage is an adjustment period, even if you've lived together beforehand, so don't mix the stresses of school with marriage. In a distance relationship, utilize the opportunities to focus on yourselves but do travel together for holidays and long weekends, make them fun and adventurous. Best of luck!

I do think a relationship is actually the best reason. I believe that deciding who you marry is the only important decision in life.

Defer it. It's easier to get into business school than it is to find someone you genuinely want to marry.

Shocked neither school would admit you both. Obviously both have the chops. You did disclose your relationship, right? I'd let them both know the situation and, at some point, that you're considering deferring and re-applying.

Thanks guys. We did apply as a couple formally on the application. Neither one of us got waitlisted at the other school. We actually contacted both deans of admissions and they said "we consider applicants individually." Ouch.
