It's really not that hard to find it. A lot easier than finding last year's WUSTL thread and posting in it too...

Here is a question. Would you rather attend UW with a ton of money or Top-14 for sticker?

I would probably rather attend UW at sticker than the bottom half of the T14 at sticker. No lie.

You like UW that much, huh? Are you are Washington resident? That would explain your answer a little more because non-resident at UW is not that much different than some T-14s. Maybe say $40,000 more over 3 years.

To be fair, it seems pretty easy to get the in-state waiver your second and third years. (IIRC)

I did not know that. So that would push the costs to around an extra $64,000 over three years. Is UW worth the saved money compared to the opportunities offered by a T-14?

Akili, if you were offered UVA and UW at sticker where would you go?

I'd choose UW without really sweating it. I have a handful of reasons, but basically it's just where I want to be.

Unless you really want to practice in the PNW after school, the T14 at sticker is almost always the better choice

I honestly don't know. The connections I have up in the Northwest are really tempting. Alumni from my university tend to stay in the Northwest and I know a few lawyers and judges from that. However, if I have Vandy with $$, that's an easy choice for Vandy. Michigan vs. UW would be even harder. I think it would come down to visiting each campus.

Is there a difference in your GI Bill (sorry if I'm calling it the wrong thing) funding for the two schools?
