Does anyone know what job prospects are like for UW grads in California?
Doesn't seem good from what I can gather, not to mention that California's bar doesn't have reciprocity, which means I would have to take the CA bar exam.
If I had my way, I would be living in Seattle/the Northwest FOREVER, but my girlfriend is insisting that I at least research the possibility of moving to CA.
Thoughts on this? It seems to me that CA is saturated with grads from CA schools, but I could be wrong.
My guess is that its 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other, Local firms here (and granted Seattle is a smaller market) like to hire from our top school, or other top schools ie if you grad. UW a are up against a Harvard grad well...
From what I've heard from other UW grads who moved out of the area, it was more about who they knew in their personal network than that they went to UW. Very regional school. But that said, very good Regional school. Also if you are from Chicago you'll be paying out of state tuition either way CA or WA, pick the place you like the best. Good Luck
