Hoping to work for the federal government upon graduation. Location not important, but obviously DC would offer the most opportunity. Overall, I like W&M better but I really like the price tag at UGA. Would W&M give me a $30K edge?

In terms of marginal cost, it makes no sense to attend UGA if you want to work in DC. Both of you COA's are equally unmanageable if you don't have a job, so you should go to the one that gives you the greatest chance of working where you want to work. As alluded to in the first response, you will need to be tops in your class, at either of those schools, to get a federal government job. But I assume you know this.
