<p>What would be your preference?</p>

<p>I live in Virginia, so I would be paying in state tuition for UVA. I got fin. aid from CMC, but UVA is still 1/2 as cheap.</p>

<p>Honestly i'm not too hot about either schools, even though they are both great, as personally they don't fit me well (i'm waitlisted at Pomona and Brown, both of which are top choices). However, I do want to go to California for college, and being able to take courses that would suit me at the other colleges would probably be better than what is available at UVA.</p>

<p>But... would it be worth it having to pay twice as much? Money is not that much of an issue for my family, but I still respect the fact that my parents have to work twice as hard to pay for it. My gut instinct says CMC, but its not enough gut instinct to absolutely convince me to go.</p>

<p>What do you think?</p>
