UVA vs. Georgetown ($) vs. Vanderbilt ($$) vs. Emory ($$$)

Postby CBQ2 » Mon Mar 23, 2015 10:30 am

Family will pay for cost of living. The goal is big law, federal clerkship, family ADR/mediation, or to work for the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (or other organizations interested in religious freedom). I would be equally happy with any of these outcomes. Willing to adjust which outcome I pursue based on which school I attend. I have ties to the southwest and southeast and prefer all places south as opposed to all places north. (warm weather!)

Here are the options (the amount in parenthesis will be mostly financed with debt):

University of Virginia (after no scholarship, sticker price, $170,400)
Georgetown (after $60,000 scholarship, reduced price, $101,670)
Vanderbilt (after $60,000 scholarship, reduced price, $92,700)
Emory (after $135,000 scholarship, reduced price, $19,530)
Notre Dame (after $135,000 scholarship, reduced price, $20,676)

What school would you attend? Why?

Family will only cover cost of living and not tuition but books are included in cost of living.

Emory and UVA seem to be ahead in the poll. Anyone care to articulate an argument for one or the other of these schools?

UVA. Places really well in the south and has a strong clerkship program. $170,400 seems like a manageable amount if you're fine doing big law.

Wow, totally stoked and surprised to get a $15,000 scholarship increase upon negotiating with Georgetown. (I updated the OP to reflect the change) I have tried negotiating with Vanderbilt but to no avail.
