I don’t think I would move in your situation.  Since you aren’t making more and probably won’t have as many advancement opportunities, I don’t see how it will help you in the long run.

As someone who has no say in where she lives, I can tell you without hesitation that loving where you live is very important.  I wouldn’t take it.

Would you rather “work to live, or live to work”?

I personally would stay in DC.

@dcgirl655:  An interview is you BOTH trying each other out.  Doesn’t matter who decides the fit isn’t right.

As a fellow 26 year old attorney, I think you should stay in DC. I would probably have a different opinion if it were another major city you were considering. I went to law school in NYC and Fiance and I moved to Atlanta to upon my graduation for cheaper housing, better weather, and to be closer to my family in SC. The move for us was the best thing ever because we really only gave up the inconvience of NYC. We still walk to bars, dinner, etc. If you are a city girl, then you just ARE! Living in Albany is a major lifestyle change and sacrifice. It is not like job opportunities for you will not arise in DC in the future, and you are currently employed, so just be patient!
