Granted, I overstated it in the OP--I concede that. But I'm just trying to be cautious in not necessarily assuming that I'm going to be a GPA superstar. I've seen threads in which posters get eviscerated for suggesting that median there would get you to NYC. Also, if you look at that chart I posted, from their own data, "only" 235 graduates have gone to NYC from the past three classes, of which some were pre-ITE. Of course, that is probably largely self-selection, but it's still something to think about.

When the poll started, Chicago was running a lot more tightly, but I'm glad the results now favor what I was already leaning towards.

Seriously though! NYU and Cornell should not even be in the running. I guess the difference between Uchi and UVA is ~45K for ~10% better placement into biglaw. Not that much, but not pocket change either. The difference in placement isn't that great, but not negligible either. I personally would pick UVA and not look back.


DELETE NYU AND CORNELL FROM THE OPTIONS, FO SHO

It's definitely UVA or UChi, and this seems like a decision that will be most easily sorted out by a visit to each. I've been to UVA, haven't been to Chicago, but from what I understand the cultures could not be more different. Neither is a wrong choice.
