This is one of the things I'm most worried about with UVA. With Boalt, Chicago, NYU, Columbia, etc. there are big job markets. I'm worried that Charlottesville is going to be a difficult place for my SO to find a job.
On the plus side, at least you're not paying 2k/month in rent while the SO is looking. For what it's worth, my college roommate's wife didn't have too much trouble finding a job in the area after he chose UVA Law, but she's also a teacher, which is probably a bit more flexible. As a last resort, there's always Richmond, too, and your SO can take heart knowing her commute is still shorter than what most people are doing from NOVA to DC each morning.
ETA: assumed SO is a she. Maybe not. My bad.
