I'm in college right now with my bp, and there haven't been any problems. I'm on campus, and they're technically illegal, but most colleges look the other way on things like that (check with current students and your potential college, though). But as long as you don't flaunt it, it should be fine.
I really hope it all works out for you...a year old ks on pinkies because of fear of CHOKING is ridiculous. Good luck.
