Hi there.  Welcome to the hive.  It can be a bit chilly when you pour your heart out in a post and nobody responds.  So I thought I’d try to weigh in, but I have to admit, all the numbers are mind boggling.  Plus, you have lots of numbers in your ‘name’, so it’s a bit of a blur, but here goes:  no, you shouldn’t have to be two hours from medical school.  Too, too tough all around.  And, no, you shouldn’t have to live in different cities to start off a marriage, either.  So, something’s gotta give if at all possible.  Can he move? So that you are both, say, about an hour or so from each of your schools til all this settles? Or can his school (# 2 I think-lol) which you say is so accommodating to significant others — reconsider your app — or in the reverse, help him get into your school? Some things to consider… or not!!

Yikes!  It sounds like they have applied the residency match method to admission.  Years 3 and 4 are predominately rotations if Texas med schools are like the others I know.  Is there anyway that he could arrange his rotations in the same location as school #3?  

My brother who is currently in his 4 year of med school disliked the hospital he did his rotations at his 3 year so he arranged all of his rotations for his 4th year.  This ment a bit more work on his part but he actually got to do a lot more rotations he enjoyed as well as being able to solidify the type of situation he would like to work.

Ugh, that’s so not fun, sorry @ninefivethree:. I do like @JoeBeth12:‘s idea of moving to a more central location so you both share the drive. Or, even though it’s way less than ideal, living separately for a bit may help you focus on your studies in your down time and you’ll really enjoy your weekends together. A few of my law school classmates live in town here during the week and then drive 4 hours home each weekend to spend time with their husbands/wives. It’s tough, but it can be done, and no matter what you two choose, just keep an eye on your future together and your goals and how everything you do is working towards a bright future together.

CONGRATS on getting into med school, btw!
