    Basically, there is one university that I would really like to go to, everything looks amazing, the course, the facilities, (I'm visiting soon), but there is a person in my college who also wants to go there. They will definitely be accepted because they are super smart.

    I really don't want to spend another 3 years with them. It sounds harsh but they are very needy and selfish, and I don't want them to ruin the university experience for me. I tried talking to them about it, but they insisted that we should ring up and move into the same college, which was exactly the opposite of what I was suggesting.

    Should I let them dictate which university I want to go to?

    You don't need to spend time with them at uni. You'll both make new friends and you can slowly limit and eventually cut off contact if you so desire.

    How large is the population of the university? Chances are if it's a lot, you won't even see them. Also, if you're both in separate departments usually, there's also a decreased chance of ever seeing them if you truly love the university, don't let this force your decision to not choose it.
