Welcome to you. Much depends on how far driving distance is for you. One day up and one day back? More - less?
As college students do you have a place that you can keep a pup? Will you be able to keep the pup through all your years of college and beyond?
What will happen if you and your brother disagree or decide not to split expenses anymore? Who gets the pup/dog and can one person manage financially and emotionally?
Life changes a lot during and just after college. A puppy and or dog is a huge responsibility.
I can tell you to look at this breeder:
She is in Oklahoma. My young girl, Mayhem, came from this kennel. I can tell you she ask lots of questions as will any good breeder.
Wishing you sucess in your search and welcome to the world of GSD's.
