My bf and I are trying to decide between the University of Washington and the University of Oregon. I'm leaning more towards the latter, but I worry that jobs will be sorely lacking in Eugene.. We will be attending graduate school, and one of us will need a decent full time job. Is there a relatively good chance of finding a decent job in Eugene?

My boyfriend will have a BS in Physics, and I will have a BA in Philosophy, if that helps.

Thank you!

PS. Any more general feedback you can provide about either city would be great.

Jobs will be much better in Seattle, though living expenses will be a bit higher there. U of O doesn't have much of a physics department. UW is much more prestigious in the hard sciences.
