Well, if you don't mind working in the region for a little while you should be able to relocate eventually. I am from Virginia and plan on staying. I have lived in northern VA and southern VA but never Richmond. Did the dean give you a deadline to let them know your decision?
She left a voicemail telling me to call her, so I'm assuming that I'm off the WL. She said something like, "I really hope you call back soon...yadda yadda." It would be funny if I dialed up and she was like, "Oh, psych...we don't want you!" Haha.
Yeah, I know nothing about Virginia. My great-grandmother was born in Richmond like a 100 years ago, and that was my last Southern relative. We're all in NJ/NY now, which means I'm clueless.
