I think that the Upper Midwest in general isn't doing as poorly as a lot of other areas. Their housing crisis wasn't nearly as bad as what happened elsewhere and the states are more solvent than say CA, NY, RI, FL, etc.

I'm not sure if there even was a housing bubble in the upper midwest. But the states are definitely more solvent. CA is teetering on insolvency as we speak.

OP is on to something. MN is rock solid. Substantive.

I'll be taking Minnesota over WUSTL, and I very strongly prefer it, for reasons beyond preferring Minneapolis to St. Louis. PM-

Anyway, we got someone claiming that UMN does have national reach (even to DC and LA) and others saying that you’re stuck in Minneapolis (and is this for the short-term or the long-term? In your opinion, does the degree become portable with work experience?). Does the truth lie somewhere in-between here or what? Any UMN grads/students out there who can comment?

Great to see some other UMN supporters out there! Does anyone here know what a median student from UMN can expect, however? Doc review or a decent mid-firm job?
