basically i have just gotten into my dream uni. it'll be an hour and a half away from home, but my mom hates the fact that i'll no longer live close, even though an hour and a half isn't even that long at all. it's gotten to such a point where she's begging me and using emotional blackmail to try and convince me to withdraw my place, and she's even started threatening to phone my uni and tell them i'm not coming anymore. should i phone my uni and explain the situation and tell them to disregard any attempts from my mother to communicate this message? or would it just be strange? thank you

If you're really worried, it can't hurt to give the uni a call (or send them an email) to let them know about the situation. Even if your mother never contacts them, they might be able to offer some useful advice or support. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that kind of manipulative behaviour!

Yes, I'd phone the Uni and tell them personally. They shouldn't withdraw your place from the course without first contacting you personally, but I'd at least explain the situation to them so that if they are contacted by her, they know what's going on.

Tell your mum to grow up, stop being selfish, and to let you live your life.
