Turn down tier 1 undergrad to be with girlfriend?

Context: I've been with my girlfriend for 2.5 years, we both plan to stay together in college, even if it's long distance. I've gotten into a top university worldwide (H/Y/ASU/Oxbridge/M), which I would want to attend, but my girlfriend and I BOTH got into a tier 2 university worldwide (Columbia/Princeton/Northwestern/Stanford/Dartmouth)

Now, like every high schooler on this forum, my wet dream is GS TMT -> KKR/BX/APO, but that broad has an absolute killer pussy, what should I do? Will GS TMT scoff at me and laugh me out the door if some tier 3 institution like Princeton was on my cv?

Nah bro you cannot turn down a tier 1 college like ASU for any girl in the world. You'll be dripping with so much pussy that you'll forget your wet dream of GS TMT (et al.) by the end of the first year. It's unfortunate that your girl couldn't get into a prestigious school like ASU, but they are really selective with 86% acceptance rate, so only the best of the best are going to make it in.

Listen carefully right now…do not ever follow someone. I was that dumbass who decided to attend the school closest to my ex. A month in, I was sad, single and stuck at a lib arts college in the middle of bumblefuck when I could've been at a top tier business school. I will never forgive myself for that and will always by haunted by the regret of not doing what was best for me, myself, and I. Whatever you choose to do, just make sure you're doing it for you.
