Portland vs. Seattle

Jump to last reply

My fiancé and I are looking to relocate to either Portland or Seattle. I would like to find a job at a university where I can ideally do clinical research (but I am open to taking an administrative assistant position as well), while also doing some post-bac work. I want to apply to medical schools in two years and need to fulfill some pre-requisites. I want to get a job at a university so I can take these classes for free (or at a discounted tuition) as an employee of the university. My fiancé is a guitarist.

Can anyone recommend one city over the over? Does anyone know which universities offer free tuition to employees, or if discounted, what the discounts are? If I would be better off finding a job at a university in one city over the other? If the music scene for artists is more vibrant in one city over the other?
