My impression is that it is, yes. (But I'm not super familiar with it so that's just an impression.)

Probably one of the most insular/parochial in the USA

There are also only around four maybe five vault 100 firms with offices in the PNW. I don't know the exact number. While Washington may place well in the PNW, it isn't feeding into "biglaw." That isn't necessarily a bad thing, so long as you've kept your debt under low and you don't mind working at a more mid-sized firm. The comparable Boston schools (BC BU) feed into the typical Vault firms in Boston/NYC/DC.

You can go down the Vault 100 list until you find a firm with a Seattle office which might give you a decent idea of the type of firms Washington feeds into.
