Those are my top choices as of now and while I still have a shot for HYP or Columbia, Stanford's rejection made me more seriously consider what will might end up being my hardest choice. Any advice, insights, or anecdotes would be greatly appreciated. And I will definitely be attending both Cal's overnight stay and UVA's days on the lawn. Thanks!
About me: Cali resident, plan to study business
in-state tuition, moneys an issue for everyone, but my parents can afford any college (over 300 k/year)
no regents, so no perks or special attention
very generally and stereotypically speaking, i dont think i'm extremely fond of the quirky cal vibe, and I've heard UVA is a lot more conservative which would fit me
echols scholar, im thinking priority registration is a big plus at crowded public schools
both have top-notch business schools but Mcintyre is ranked a little higher, however much that counts for
in a remote area, which I've heard is amazingly gorgeous but I think I'd prefer to be at least near a busy city
perhaps less crazy competition than at cal?
