I'd go with UVA. That's a lot of money to save and you're already where you want to end up.

Do you know what need-based aid you'll be getting from Harvard yet?

I would most definitely not make any choice until then. HYS is typically very generous with need-based aid. I personally would take H with even a little bit of need-based vs. 3/4 (tuition, I'm assuming?) at UVA.

EDIT: Congrats either way! That's a pretty awesome predicament to be in.

Congrats!

I think it depends on your financial situation. Do you have any savings to dispose of / Are you a trust fund kid? :lol: Anyway both schools are really great and I am Jelly!

What's your LSAT score if you don't mind~

The massive prestige whore in me is yelling Harvard, but the financially prudent side is leaning towards UVA. Take your pick, OP. These are both terrific options.

No wrong answer imo. Go by weather and how much you like the campus/city.

Ask again when you know exactly how much it costs to go to each school. At this point it seems that money is the deciding factor.

I agree with this, unless Harvard is very generous with its need aid. If you want to work in VA, you'll be fine with UVA, plus you'll only be around 40-50k in debt (in state?) vs. +200k for Harvard.

lol if you want to work in the region then it is UVA unless you want academia or clerkships. when you graduate you will realize that +$200K in debt is not worth the harvard name is you can get what you want from UVA.
