Money is not a factor really and I am not sure where I really want to work and I want to have the best options to move if I decide one of these markets....I know these schools are regional really, but still wondering

Just guessing but I would think the latter would be easier. While bc/gw etc may ne regional schools, you don't have as many big name schools in ohio turning out grads for you to compete with. In the former scenario on the other. Hand, you will be graduating from ohio state and trying to compete with national and regional school grads for a position in already difficult markets.

ND would probably be stronger in the Ohio, etc. market. However, it would be weaker on the East Coast. The advantage ND has is it has a very loyal alumni base. That said, it probably won't help you out very much out.

It is difficult to get DC even from East Coast T30s. I would avoid OSU if you want a realistic shot at that market. Keep in mind that there are tons more grads trying to go from OH/PA ---> NYC/DC than vice versa. Also:

Ohio 56%
Illinois 8%
New York 5%
Washington, D.C. 5%

Placement from BC/BU/Fordham ---> Midwest (non-Chi) is probably more like 1-2% due to self-selection and sheer market size.

Basically this. ND is just an all-around stronger school.
--Is it better than OSU for DC? Doubt it matters.
--NYC? Probably.
--Midwest? Definitely.
You should go there over OSU anyways unless money is a factor.
