Maintaining a relationship during b-school?
I know this topic is not related to admissions so my apologies in advance if it's not in the right forum.
I am currently in a relationship with a great girl; we've been dating for about 2 years, and even though marriage is not something that's on my mind yet, i could definitely see myself marrying this girl. She applied to business schools during round 1, and I did applications for round 2, for mba as well as mfin. She was lucky enough to get into her first choice and already sent in her deposit, so there's no ambiguity on where she will end up this fall. On my end though, i'm interviewing, and if i don't get into that school i will have to go elsewhere. I also applied to a few european mfin programs, so depending on my options it could become a real long-distance thing.
Question and concerns. From what I have heard from different people, conventional wisdom seems to be that if you and your significant other are going to be in different schools, it's simply not going to work out. I think there's a term called "black friday" or "black october?" To what extent is this true? I would love to hear serious responses from people who may have been in similar situations.
Thanks a lot.
