    Ishouldbewriting got a reaction from whitmanifesto in 2018 Applications Thread   
    My partner and I do this now. She is doing graduate work in a different state than me and driving 9 hours one way is definitely out of the option. We split the cost of plane tickets and manage to see each other on weekends about twice a month. It has put some strain on the relationship (especially at first when we were getting used to the transition), but we think that the separation has actually made us stronger. Calling/messaging regularly has definitely been key, though! 
    I guess making the long distance thing work really depends on the couple, but it is definitely feasible! I wish you luck with whatever you end up deciding

    Well, received a rejection from UPenn. I'm kind of relieved, to be honest. At least now the wait is finally over and now I can just focus on actually deciding between the options I have. Good luck to everyone that is still waiting on different programs!

    You're posting on the Communication forum. You know what must be done!

    My condolences for you and your family. 
    Also, don't let it get you down! It is still very early on in the process. I'm sure that something will end up sticking. What other programs are you waiting on?

    I'm in the same boat with UPenn. I heard a rumor somewhere else on the forum that they will be sending out notifications of acceptance/rejection in mid-February. I'm unsure of how credible the rumor is, or not, but it is something!!
