The schools got a pretty good LRAP compared to other schools, though, and the possibility of landing significant PI work through UVA is very good too - so if you think about it, UVA actually gives you one of the best shakes if your interests are outside of big law. And worst case scenario, you're making 50,000 a year - with your earnings going up - and paying 20,000 in loans. 30,000 is livable, not extravagant, but you won't starve. And you will be doing something that makes you happy in the long term, that's how I look at it at least.
