Dillard at UVA and it's not even close


I agree with this—full scholarship at a higher-ranked school is a game changer. Take it.

Hi-jack away! I have to agree that your Dillard is an INCREDIBLE outcome, and I think the fact that you aren't as "Texas or Bust" as I am makes a bit more of a case for UVA. I personally just want to go to Houston ASAP to work near family (maybe with? That is still pending:p), and so it's a lot easier for me to feel that UT is a more wise decision. But regardless of what you choose, I'm sure you're going to kill it out there!

right now, UVA. if Duke matches, choose the one you like better between Duke/UVA.

My experience is that UT is eager to match or beat other schools. They may well up you to close to a full ride.

I certainly hope so! But I've also heard exactly the opposite... I'll just have to see what happens!

Updated information with Michigan's offer! Would Michigan make it hard to get back to Texas, given my strong Texas ties?
