Good call. I looked around to check the accuracy of the Wikipedia article but the cite I found only had 1990-Present. Thanks for the correction.
Still, I feel like Duke and Virginia are definitely peer schools, and that a shortage of representation often allows Duke to be underrated on TLS. I'm waiting to hear back from Duke, Michigan, and UVA, and aside from receiving more aid from one of them, I think it's an incredibly tough decision despite the fact that TLSers would most likely advise otherwise.
Where have you seen this? Most people would agree that UVa and Duke are peer schools. To OP: If you've visited both Duke and UVa and both look good, then I say pick UVa because of your slight preference for the environment and your goal of working in DC.
