Montana has better skiing, so that's a plus ;)

I beg to differ...Jackson Hole is the best area in the US

I love to ski....but Jackson Hole is many hours (4+) from U of WY.....and Big Sky is 3+ hours from U of MT.
I know Missoula has a local resort (and great backcountry skiing) and Denver is less than 2 hours from WY (and Rocky Mountain National park is in between)

THese schools should have satellite campuses

I work in Jackson and live in Driggs, Idaho, just over Teton Pass. From my house it is 5 1/2 hours to Missoula and seven hours to Laramie. From my office it is about 6:15 to either one. Big Sky does kick ass, also, and Montana Snow Bowl is fun. I'd say Montana beats Wyoming in the proximity to great skiing category.

zzzz

I heard from Montana a few weeks ago (accepted). 

I'm really having a hard time deciding between my three options Syracuse, Gonzaga, and Montana.  I want to go to the best school possible and I also want to live in the rocky mountain region (preferably Colorado), but I realize that I may have to give a little here and there.  So, here's the deal: (1) Is Syracuse so much better than Gonzaga and Montana to warrant going East instead of going to a region that I really like? (2) If not, then between Gonzaga and Montana, which school will provide me with the best chance at getting a decent paying law firm job in the rocky mountaiin region (still waiting on CU and DU btw)?     

any guidance would be appreciated

neither school will be great for a rocky mtn job...Gonzaga will give you the option of having nearby mtns but you will be living in the PacNW
