my money problem is pretty bad too. sticker price for GW is 43k for tuition only. Fortunately, my parents live 15 min drive away from the metro station and foggy bottom is 10 min metro ride so commuting (although going to be a hassle) is a possibility. (hopefully GW accepts me off of the waitlist)
as for your question, GW is known for jobs in DC and NYC. If you look at their stats, good % of the students take the bar in NYC and get hired by NYC firms. I think Wake is pretty much limited to NC...but then again, if you can be like top 5% of your class, you might be able to go other places. I'm not sure.
You should withdraw from GW
