If you want to work in a secondary market and have significant money to a highly ranked school in a secondary market, why is this even up for debate?

This. I'm not sure what "secondary markets" you mean OP, but WUSTL places pretty well in a number of them (STL, KC, Indianapolis, etc.) Do you have ties to a secondary market? If not, it is going to be tough (although not impossible) to break into one no matter what school you go to.

ITE, I'd avoid paying sticker at all but the very top schools. GWU is a great school, but sticker + DC COL is outrageous. You'll save tens of thousands just in COL in STL.

IMO, WUSTL.

+1, clearly WUSTL is the better choice IMO.
