Tuition isn't hugely different between the two, but you should also consider COL, which is much lower at UVA. In my experience G-town students in general (not the law school specifically) are really stuck up, serious (and largely undeserved imho) superiority complex issues. Not all of course, but an alarming percentage of the ones I've met have obviously displayed such traits. UVA folks tend to be very relaxed, laid back and humble despite being on average of equal or greater academic standing.
Also GULC is very strongly liberal (in the modern sense, not the classical sense) while UVA is only moderately liberal.
I personally didn't even apply to GULC, but UVA is one of my top choices. Its really a matter of personal preference, GULC's strengths hit areas that don't matter to me, its weakness bother me, UVA is the exact oposite in many ways. I don't care for big cities and enjoy a friendly, laid back, but academically excellent atmosphere:)
