I live in Kansas, and can tell you that Topeka is a boring town. Washburn is a good school however, if you want to practice law in Kansas. The legal field isn't hurting quite as much as the bigger cities throughout the country either. If you can stomach a small, boring town in the midwest for three years, go for it. You could always move to Wichita or Kansas City after school. Both of those are great cities to live in.
