IS THE DC MARKET CRAP???

Postby SHANbangs » Wed Dec 22, 2010 6:35 pm

I've been hearing that the DC Market is a "bloodbath". Initially, the plan was to hit DC (I've applied to GW and W&M, got dinged at GULC ED), because my parents want me really close to them (they live in baltimore. I'm not applying to UMD bc there's no way in hell I'm chilling in downtown baltimore for 3 years). But if the DC market is bad, I may seriously consider other schools. I just got 3 fee waivers from UIUC, WUSTL, and Bloomington. Worth applying? How are the markets they target in comparison to DC? My stats are 3.24, 169 - if I got in, would i get much money?

My mother's health is not very good, so I would like to be closer to her, assuming I can find a decent job. It's not the only consideration, but it is a consideration for me.

DC has few jobs and is ultra competitive.

UIUC/WUSTL/IU-B are all in the midwest so the major market there (Chicago) is probably worse than DC, though the competition is less.

The best way to go would be to go to a school that can get you NYC as that is the easiest market, something like BU/BC if you can't slang Cornell with your stats.

WOW. Someone has a terrible family life, huh? What exactly is wrong with wanting to live near family? It is not like he is going to be actually living with them.
