Everyone - Thank you so much for your comments! I definitely understand the point that it (most often) makes the most sense to go to school in the region in which one ultimately wants to practice. My dilemma is just that I want to practice in NY immediately upon graduating. That is my short term plan - call it graduation + 5 years. However, ultimately, I'm not sure if I would want to return to Pennsylvania or that general area, and it sounds like Pitt has an OK reputation in PA, DC, etc. I wondered if it made sense any way you cut it - to go to Pitt with the intention to get a job upon graduation in New York. Sounds like the concensus is that it doesn't....Also, I want to keep the option of transferring open, (just in case), and I'm wondering if (again) the region and rank of the schools affect admission as a transfer student.
