    It is the last school on your resume that counts most and if one goes for MS or PhD any top something school would be about as good for admission to grad program if one got grades and recommendations.
    If BS is your top degree, sure, reputation alone is worth a lot.

    This needs to be emphasized.

    If you are paying for grad school (other than law school), you probably shouldn’t be there. The school should see your value and pay you to attend.

    Just my opinion, of course.

    My sister was/is a rare bird. Moved from better weather to worse, and then still worse. Got her BA from UCSC, then PhD, MA and MS from Cornell. Then moved to Portland to work in various university settings.

    Having lived in Hood River for two years and venturing into the city occasionally during the winter... No thank you.

    45K for tuition is pretty normal compared to their peers.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    The real cost is about 80k a year. There are about 15-20 colleges in the US that are worth these prices long term. The issue is there are many colleges that charge Ivy prices with no real benefit other than taking classes. The college inflation game is a national travesty.

    Anecdotally, I would say the kids in Washington are much more similar to kids in California than California kids are to New Englanders. More socially conservative/introverted, as well as politically conservative in many cases. While I was there were definitely a few cliques that formed that had high correlation to where people grew up. That could be for any number of reasons but the social structures amongst them were undeniably different.

    I feel like I'm articulating this concept poorly but the point is there is more thats different about the east coast than just the weather.
    And heaven forbid kids be exposed to different thoughts and ideas; we wouldn't want that to happen.
