The large region is fair. Wash U is trying to be more national. They have a large number of alums in NY and a fair number in the DC area. They are working on the West Coast. You just have to finish higher in the class to go to certain firms/places.

National versus Regional is silly, and overblown.People are more likely to leave their hometowns, or their desired area of practice, if they get into big-time elite schools, and are less likely to do so if they got into a perfectly fine local school, but no elite schools. Then, after graduating, they leave their law school's area--as they intended to do all along. Does that mean that the non-elite schools aren't "national"?Often times, if a person wanted to practice in their hometown of, say, San Diego, persons who would move to Boston to go to Harvard would not move to Boston to go to Boston College, especially if they got into USD locally. That isn't to say that Boston College doesn't have national pull, or is less of a "national school" than Harvard, it just means that people who go to Harvard (and top schools) go there for the education and have no interest in staying local.Name recognition means a lot, of that I am aware. But, to overplay its importance is pervasive here it seems.
