Thanks for your comments. Luckily I'm not interested in working north of Kentucky. I was thinking FL, AR, GA, TX.

Washington state has some of the worst unemployment in the U.S. actually.

Where should I go next fall? / University of Kentucky

I was recently accepted to University of Kentucky Law School on a provost scholarship. Lexington, KY is a nice community and the school looks appealing, but I am wondering what kind of placement they have. I'm sure they place badass in KY, but what about bordering states? What kind of reciprocity does KY have? Anyone with info would be appreciated.

Seattle U is only a drop in rankings, and ranking are bull. It's a great school, in many ways equal to UW and certainly a friendlier and definitely less pompous school. UW is significantly cheaper tho...

When was your letter dated Jackson? If it was yesterday, I ain't going to get the mail today.

Seattle is a solid school, no doubt. It's a good place to go if you plan on staying here. And yes, they are significantly more expensive (but with your numbers you should get some $$$). UW is pretty rotten in that they have such a small class size. I mean, where are all the WA students supposed to go?? The postage was dated 2/16, the actual letter 2/14.

P.s. I'll probably end up going to UK anyway (merit $$). I'm not too crushed.

Very sorry to hear it, Jackson. I've made the same point myself, that people in Washington are screwed because the only state school is so competitive. Most if not all of the other states with very competitive public schools at least have less competitive public alternatives. Good luck with your other applications. With your numbers you will get in somewhere good.

I appreciate the comment. The only alternative to UW is Seattle U, but it is a significant drop off. Places like CA, TX, VA etc really have it made, as they each have several quality schools.

160/3.5, WA resident.

I feel like I deserve to go to law school there. They're the only public law school in the state too. Bummer.

It rains A LOT in Seattle, but that is balanced out (in my mind) by the fact that it's green year-round. It's beautiful! And the mountains are incredible--you've got a mountain range to the east AND west. Yeah...I love the Pacific Northwest! :)

Actually, if you look at annual rates, it rains a lot more in Florida, Arkansas, TX, KY, GA et al. than Seattle. Because it is overcast a lot (which doesn't indicate "rain" per se), there is a popular misconception that it rains a ton here. What happens is in the winter months (Oct-April) it tends to rain often (maybe 2 times a week or so), but in the summer months (May-Sept) it doesn't rain at all. Like most of the west coast, Seattle basically consists of two seasons: dry and wet. The wet season here is longer than the rest of the west coast. But places in the south and mid-atlantic actually get more rain than Seattle ever does.

I'm sorry no, I don't think it's obvious.  7,000 x 3 = 21,000  I don't know about you, but that's still A LOT of money to me.  A lot more than zero for darn sure.

For a school like UT, 21K is nothing. You could probably work part-time during school for 3 years and pay it off before you even graduate. Regardless, you will be able to work anywhere in Texas doing anything. 21K isn't much for a top 15 school.
