Unless you want to work in the Virginia/DC area, do not go to WM.
I posted earlier about this based on a friends perspective who is currently in attendance. Tennisking88 is right that Virginia/DC are the places that W&M primarily places in, but I think those hoping to gain employment outside of the region can also be successful so long as their grades are good. W&M has a pretty big alumni base, and I know of some out where I live (CO). As a safety school it is a pretty good choice, especially if you DO want to work in that area. It is probably one of the best schools that you will find outside of the T14.
And like I said earlier, if anyone has any solid contradictory evidence to this, please let me and for that matter everyone else tracking this thread know.
