I agree with people saying "if you have to ask, you already know the answer".
I've been with my boyfriend over 6 years, and if I had to move 5 hours away, there would be no doubt in my mind that we would stay together. I believe long distance relationships work, but not forever. When he's done school, is he willing to move to you? Are you willing to move back here to him? Are you both willing to compromise and move somewhere in the middle?
If you haven't even thought about or discussed this kind of stuff, or neither of you have plans to move for each other, I don't think it would be worth the time and effort (for both of you) to commit to a long distance relationship.
I had a long distance relationship a long time ago, and no it did not work. However, I moved 5 hours (driving) to another city last summer, and my boyfriend and I are closer than ever. But it's because we both know we're in this relationship for the long haul. When I moved, we didn't question anything other than "What kind of webcams and long distance calling plan should we get!"
