Grad school and long-term romantic relationships
(full story below)
I know this is a bit off topic from the rest of the threads, but I was wondering how many people are in a similar situation as I am. I'm applying for literature PhD programs and my partner is applying for MA programs in I/O psychology. We've been dating for about 2.5 years and our relationship has made the application process even more stressful. We both applied to upwards of ten schools and we tried to apply to schools in the same area (since it's hard to find schools that have both a good psych and lit program) which limited some great options. Now that we're starting to hear back from places it's even more stressful because we have to start making decisions about where we want to go: if we don't get into schools near each other do we risk going long-distance? Should one person compromise if the other gets into a really great program? Should one of us take time off and try applying once the other is finished? The questions keep compounding and I was wondering if anyone is dealing with similar issues. I've noticed from some peoples' comments that many applicants also are in long-term relationships, so I figured this might be a common issue.
