assuming cost of living is about 15k more in DC, Georgetown is about 10-15K cheaper than Duke.
I am leaning towards Duke but still conflicted. If only Georgetown had better placement and was close to home. Those are the reason why I am choosing Duke (Location to friends/family and safer NLJ placement). The cost of those advantages are steep though; I will have to live with myself and go to sleep every night knowing that I went to Duke.
Duke is easily worth $20k more than GULC.
Duke has much better placement, isn't appreciably cheaper, and is much closer to home. This is a no-brainer.
BUT MEANINGLESS COLLEGE RIVALRIES, ETC
