My question was more like this: I want to move to Oregon. Is it better to go to law school there now, or go to Pitt, work, then try to move?
Then I'd go to L&C if it's cheap enough.
Or move out there now and reapply to Oregon as a resident.
Pitt will be you nowhere outside of Pittsburgh.
Outside of the T14, go to where you want to work.
Is it reasonable to think once you have several years of work experience, like in other fields, that matters more than the school? As in, if I have a solid job for 5-9 years, would that be enough to move to a different city?
It can be, but you're counting on a number of conditionals here. If Oregon is what you really want, I'd work like mad to establish ties there. Moving out there and working for a year or two before starting law school could do the trick, especially since (like tflem said) you could establish residency
