    Prediction: a CCer from Vandy will come across this thread and will argue about the positioning in the hierarchy.

    I feel UVA, as an elite public school, is being slightly underrated.
  • dell123dell123 Registered User Posts: 333 Member
    I think UVA is a great school, but very limited in its scope of strong degrees. Everyone I know who went there majored in English...
  • SUNY1111SUNY1111 Registered User Posts: 62 Junior Member
    Agreed.

    Still, In-state at UVA, UNC, and even UT are amazing deals that would be hard to pass up. Ive always wanted New York to designate a flagship state school.... its a shame

    Dell123, just because everyone YOU KNOW who went to UVA majored in English, that doesn't mean that UVA isn't great in other areas. For example, UVA is very strong in undergraduate business, architecture, English, Religious Studies, Government/Politics, American Studies, bio-engineering, Spanish, French, German, the list goes on.
