GULC($) vs. UT($) vs. UVA

Postby jen13 » Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:04 pm

So I have full tuition covered at Georgetown and UT and as far as I currently know, no money at UVA. However, UVA is my first choice and I would love to go there! I want to do BigLaw, hopefully/maybe incorporating my Mandarin skills at some point.

So my first question is whether people think it's worth it to go to UVA over the other two but come out with significantly more debt (about 180000 as opposed to maybe 60000)?

And second question is, if not UVA, Georgetown or UT at about the same price? I really like them both so I'm having a hard time deciding....

Also, I don't really care where I end up.

Students at UVA were recently striking because they are so far in debt and still don't have jobs. Why risk it? You could have great opportunities at Georgetown with a fraction of the debt.

Have you tried to leverage the free ride at GULC for $$ at VA?

If this is in fact true, I think I'd roll with Texas.

Georgetown, unless UVA somehow puts up good money during your negotiations with them.

I'd definitely try to negotiate with VA.
That said, I think I'd go Texas over GTown.
Mostly that's b/c I wouldn't want to live in DC.
Plus, COL is much cheaper in TX.
However, you might like the idea of living in DC.
If so, take GTown.

Texas or GULC. No way UVA is worth 135k more than those two schools.

He is referencing the ATL article. It was a few unemployed 3L's who were wearing tshirts they made about being unemployed at ASW.

Believe me, there are unemployed 3L's at every one of these schools.

I know the article, but weren't the other 3Ls laughing it off because the students agreed to stop once the adcomms gave them free uva law tshirts? Plus someone on the UVA 2L thread i think said it was like a handful of 3Ls. Patriot1208 made it seem like it was so many 3Ls and there was a revolution going on.

I think you mean Aldenita made it seem that way. But ya, I wouldn't think anything of it. There was an article about something similar happening at NYU last year.
