Never really realized the price difference. Lets say you wouldnt mind living in Texas, but would prefer: CA, DC, NYC, TX (in that order).

No money at either

No money at UT? $26K?

I thought IS tuition there was $32K/year?

Yeah, double check that tuition figure... it's definitely not 26K.

Your location preference is basically: most major legal markets > TX legal market. Go to UVA.

UVA is probably worth an extra 15k a year. It isn't worth 2x of UT.

If you want to work in CA, UCLA or USC would be better than UT.

You'll do fine at UVA if you want to be in CA. I have friends in SF and LA at the major firms who went to UVA.
