I will buck the trend here. If the game play of this is much like Sims 2 University - it gets rather dull when you send lots of teens off to University. And with the open ageing system, I’d be worried that the rest of the family is ageing too fast compared to the students.
Someone else wondered if it would be like traveling (pixelpixies, maybe?), and I’d be totally on board with that.
It would be like gaining extra lifetime, to build skills, find romance, collect oodles of gems - and everyone else would be on hold while we do it.
If it’s just a new town with apartments set up to look like dorms I won’t really be into it.
