1) How hard is it to find a job in a secondary market outside of the Midwest? I'm thinking of somewhere like San Diego, Phoenix, Atlanta, or Miami. Maybe those are all different, but I'm curious whether UChicago makes sense in any of those scenarios.
Thanks for doing this, this thread has been really helpful
Anecdotally, the UChicago brand carries great weight in secondary markets and it's completely possible to get jobs in those places, especially if you have ties. I know of median-ish people who got jobs at firms in San Diego, Dallas, Philly, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Miami, and New Orleans. Most had at least some reason to be back in those cities, however.
Does being median mean you have to go smaller market? Or can median at UChicago still get you DC?
