U of A does place outside of AZ. I thinks that's a pretty big statement..
It does place outside, not significantly, but yes. A handful are spread across the Mountain West region. It seems like a people go to Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, etc. It seems like if your heart is set on practicing in New Mexico, University of New Mexico is a great choice. However, the majority of grads stay in Arizona though. To me, it just makes sense to go to a school where you want to be if you're not going to T-14. It would be silly to go to U of A if you thought you might want to practice in Florida. I went to the Admitted Student Day, and I asked the dean about students who want to go out of state. To be honest, his answer didn't make me feel better. Over half of their alumni are in the city of Phoenix alone. If you're cool with ending up in Phoenix, okay. Personally, I know I don't want to be in Phoenix.
and what if OP really wants to be in Oregon? Probably better off at Lewis and Clark or University of Oregon. It's all about preference. The only person who can figure out what's a better school for them is the person who asked the question. It all comes down to preferences.
