Texas loves Duke/UVA. Keeping it in the South.

Michigan sends plenty of people to Texas, offers are close. Visit schools, see which one you like better. If you can't decide, save a few bucks and go to whichever you negotiate the most from.

After talking to a lot of students and graduates from both schools we decided on Michigan!:) I was mostly worried about their ability to place in Texas, but they do plenty well

Have you asked UVA to match?

According to UVA they are totally dry. If you do manage to squeeze any water out of that stone please do let me know.

Personally I think UVA is probably worth the extra $36k, but that's partially because as a future PI warrior there's a decent chance you won't be paying much of it back anyway.

Also, I'll be there, so there's that.


Apparently they have $120k back in the pot.

Glad you have made a choice. If you still have Harvard at the back of your mind, I would be seriously looking at the differences in LRAP offering since you're PI focused. Also, I'm presuming you did look at the fellowship offerings from both schools, since they're often a gateway into PI employment? I know UVA will has historically had a large number of Kennedy Fellows (1 year PI fellowships), Does Michigan do the same? That alone would make the cost of attendance just about even.

I'm sorry! I'm not the OP, and am actually aiming for biglaw
