S'all good. Yeah, I have a friend who goes there for UGrad and I've seen pictures...Wow. I live in NJ, and not even Princeton compares with that. I'm just concerned about placement outside of VA. I mean, I have nothing against living/working down south, but some degree of mobility would be good. I've heard UoR is really regional, and I have no family/friends in the area.
Richmond is a small city, and very obviously a southern city.. but there are some more progressive areas (carytown). step out of richmond and it's more likely than not that you're standing in some really conservative-religious ground. it's obvious, at least to me, that it's not in the north. i do hear a lot of northerners go to the school, but no idea if that applies to the law school specifically.
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?
