Interviewed in-person as well. What were your thoughts? I thought highly of the interactions I had with the staff, but have concerns regarding the reputation outside of the region. I think I'm leaning toward schools with national recognition and large alumni networks, but really enjoyed my visit to Portland. Not out of the running yet.
Yeah, I mean, the PDX legal community is what it is. I have family in the area and I definitely would like to practice in Portland, but yeah bigger markets obviously ease the job placement anxiety. Are you looking into Davis or UW?
I applied to Davis, Colorado, U of O, L & C, Utah, and USC. Would love to end up in Portland, but as you said it is what it is. Davis would be nice, but I live in the Sac area now and it's kind of a drag (just my opinion). Also, would be competing with Berkeley/Stanford/Hastings crowd for SF jobs. I'm just going to pick somewhere I would enjoy living/studying in for 3 years, then hustle/network my ass off to get a job.
Not a bad route to go. Yeah, I'm from Sac originally, south sac actually. I'd only want to live in midtown or the pocket area if I were to ever live in Sac again. Fuck Elk Grove, South sac, roseville, folsom, rancho murieta, etc lol
