Re-take and get closer to 170. That's an amazing GPA. You can be looking at big offers from a bunch of T14s.

Given that you do not want to hear "retake," UVA is clearly the way to go. That's a nice scholarship to a great school. Good luck.

$25,000 a year at UVA with that LSAT is pretty amazing. Congrats!

That said, I agree with everyone else on this thread. UVA is head and shoulders above all the other schools you listed and since you're not paying sticker, I say go for it. If you're unsure at all in your decision, visit UVA's ASW.

(This all coming from a completely biased UVA law student)

wait... you got 25,000 with a 163 and 3.9??? I thought your numbers were skewed. Both my numbers were higher than yours and I got 0 dollars. I would accept as fast as you possibly could!

Wow money w a 163. Are you a URM?

Your profile says no, but I was wondering if that's not telling the whole story or if there are other circumstances. In state?

Right? Nope, not in-state, not a URM

I think there are many situations where T14 is a bad choice, but honestly this is UVA no question. It's worth the debt in your spot, and it's a valuable degree.
