Because CCN students get BigLaw, assume they could have gotten BigLaw from anywhere now that they have it, and wish they had taken a cheaper route.
There isn't THAT much of a difference between CCN and MVPB. Especially if the 5-10% BigLaw difference comes with a cushion of not needing BigLaw.
ETA: OP, congrats on your choice. If you really think you couldn't be happy in Charlottesville, I think you made the right one... since being comfortable at your law school definitely isn't meaningless.
That ~10% difference between CCN and MVP is both statistically significant and tangible. Yes, it's not huge, but it's not small either. For many people, that cushion is very important. Plus, you don't have to live out in the boonies either.
I agree, UVA free tuition is hard to pass up. But it's not like choosing NYU here was a bad decision either.
