I know next to nothing about Columbia's LRAP (as opposed to NYU's), but #4 is super-credited.

Basically it's the LRAP closest to HYS. It's downright gold if you land a government job paying over 60K ( it's the only non HYS LRAP that covers government jobs with good salaries).

1) Yale
2) Harvard
3) Michigan - visit
4) Virgina - visit
5) Penn
6) Chicago - visit
7) NYU (not visit but seen campus)
8.) Columbia
9) Georgetown
10) Vanderbilt
11)UT
12) Duke
13) Cornell
14)GW

I wasn't really interested in CA so no Berkley or Stanford (No real chance) nor very interested in NYC so Columbia (NRC) and NYU are lower than they deserve to be as schools. IRL I was choosing CN and down but went ED to Michigan to leave nothing to chance.

Live in that area for 3 years? No thanks. I'd rather endure Ithica

(None of CCN really appeal to me; I'd much rather take a substantial scholarship to a lower-ranked school).

haha well i grew up in TX and only want to go back to TX, which may also help explain my preference of schools

and TX is a unique market..where ties matter a lot and UT is seen as a very powerful hitter; in-state tuition + virtually a free ride = on par w/ NYU (w/ partial scholly) for me

I think it is an excellent choice. Seeing it there with those other schools just threw me off, haha...
