What are everyone's reasons for applying to UW, for those who want to share?
- Ideal outcome is Seattle PI work, so this is the ideal set-up
- In-state tuition/general low cost
You won't have a problem finding government/non-profit externships. And you should do all right finding a job after graduation, though it's still competitive. Wherever you're thinking you might want to work, be sure to extern/work there for at least a quarter or a summer. That's the best way to get in on an entry-level job opening. And save money for bar exam expenses during 3L, because even if you have a post-grad gig lined up with the government or a non-profit, they won't pay for that stuff.
That's the hope! Seattle is home, so I definitely know I want to be here long-term, and that extends to the summers as well - would you recommend doing that for the course of 1L and 2L summers? Or should I try to "burnish" a resume with a DC gig or something? Though this is a lot of cart before horse talk I suppose
That depends. We can talk more about it via PM or offline, I don't want to totally clog up the thread. But there are pros and cons to each.
