I know "someone" very well who goes to Pitt and has been extremely frustrated by their Career Services help (or lack thereof) and the job search. It's been a bad experience as far as finding employment goes.
Can you elaborate on this a bit more in terms of how well they've done in classes and what specific type of employment they're looking for?
Do you know how they like the area itself?
I am in a similar dilema. Theyre offering me a decent amount of money but theyre 4.5 hours away and im almost certain I want to come back to the DC area. However, the only DC school ive gotten into (so far) is Catholic with no money and theres no way in HELL im paying 50k a year to go to Catholic. They kind of pissed me off actually...im above their medians but they didnt throw me anything.
Also, i wouldnt take any one person's anecdotal experience as an indicator of how the whole office operates. But I am sure that unless youre in the top 20% or so, you wont get a job through OCI. However, there are other ways to get jobs than oci.
GW...not even a question.
