Unless you have ties or went to WVU law, forget it.
Maybe you could swing it in the eastern PH near Martinsburg. Not much else though.
"eastern PH"? (sorry, Philly gal here!)
Yeah, that's precisely what I figured. I'm gonna tell him to not expect to be welcomed with open arms and to network like crazy with the handful of BC alums that are there. Perhaps a downward transfer to WVU Law is in order if he's so bent on ending up there? As a friend, I'd be sorry to see him go, but it would be more ideal for his very specific career goals. He doesn't regret coming to BC, but is a bit disillusioned with certain aspects of the experience--for example, the very "privileged" student body (I suppose this is the case at all top schools), obsession with BigLaw, etc.
Entirely my fault - typing between class. Eastern Panhandle region (in the DC metro market). They are more willing to accept "outsiders." To some degree the Northern Panhandle (Wierton/Wheeling) but that is a smaller market and subject to competition from WVU and Pitt.
I have a name of a BU alum if you want to PM me.
