Basically, I'm torn between 2 unis, A and B. A is about an hour and a half away on the train, the other is about 4 hours. A is the uni I originally wanted to go due to location and study abroad but after visiting applicant days and researching, B is a better choice in terms of course, career etc.
I am an only child, and I live with my mum. I get the feeling she wants me to go to A simply because it is nearer and I can return every weekend or every other weekend. If I chose uni B, coming home even every other weekend would be difficult due to cost etc. and I would feel bad that I would be leaving my mum on her own, due to a lack of siblings she would probably go insane (not actually but just get a bit sad I guess). Am I being reasonable that I should take this into account? Because its one of the reasons A seems appealing, but not taking distance into account would make the choice between A and B a bit easier to make.
Why do people do it?
