Which one is correct?

No student ought to be put into a situation...in which / where he has to choose between his loyalty to his friends and his duty to the class.

When do we use 'in which' vs. 'where'?

usage of "where" here seems to be correct.

sorry I don't know rules but while reading the statement I can make out "where" is the best choice.

GMAT only use "where" for a place/location
"in which" is correct.
