Go to UVa. Better location (objectively), better reputation, better placement in DC (and probably everywhere else), better QoL, etc. Also, C'Ville isn't so far from Durham that you won't be able to see your family/friends on weekends if you so choose.

I may be a bit biased, though. I'm fairly obsessed with UVa, and it is one of my top choices.

Interesting that most of you speak about getting an apartment -- would it be solo or with a roommate?  I've never dormed (commuter school) and don't know how I would deal in a dorm situation (I'm thinking I might like to have the opportunity just once).  What about concerns that staying off-campus will separate you from the school/community and inhibit your ability to make good connections and friends?  And what about cost -- are apartments in the C'ville area cheap compared to the dorm?


I wouldn't be against getting a roommate, but it would have to be someone with whom I have a lot in common. From what I've heard about UVa (and this is probably true at most schools), there are a few apartment complexes that are largely populated by LS students; thus, you should be able to find a social living arrangement off-campus. As far as the dorm experience, I don't particularly care for it, though I might value my privacy and space more than others.

Plus I heard on the tour that the dorms there aren't very popular because you have to share a room and most people live off campus.

Right. If I decide on UVa I'll find an apartment.

I'd check the UVa website or  phone housing either this upcoming week or whenever they are open. I wouldn't think that you'd need to do anything quite yet, since most people have not committed.

what about running in NYC?  I know that it would be an urban nightmare in general, but are there at least good places to run?  Never been outside the airport there.  I could probably get by without biking if I could run every day.  Is NYU or Columbia in a better area for running?  I'm not sure if I'll be able to turn down the NYU offer.

Tralala is correct. It's a 2-3 minute bike ride (3-5 jogging) from the northwest entrance to Central Park. NYU has Washington Square Park, which is pretty good for picking up hookers or crack, or both.

I think it depends where you are located too.  I'm on the West coast, and I haven't heard of anyone out hear who has heard yet.

I think some people have heard on the West coast, but there have been two waves of letters - one postmarked 12/12 and one postmarked 12/14. Mine was postmarked 12/12 and I got the letter today - and I'm on the East coast.
