Yeah, but what if you want to work in, say, Seattle/Portland/San Fran? GULC should place out there, right?
Sure. I live and work in California, and there seem to be a lot of GULC grads out here. I'd be surprised if a Northwestern grad has an advantage over a GULC grad on the west coast. For west coast placement opportunities, my sense is that DCNG are at roughly the same level.
