Michigan v. Virginia (both w. scholarships)


dnunes
Hi, everyone! Have offers with scholarships from Michigan and UVA. I'm having a hard time deciding between them both.
I believe both are great schools and have a similar reputation in the US (what about internacionally?).
Ann Arbor is close to big cities such as Chicago and Detroit, unlike Charlottesville (so it could be easier to find a job during OPT?).
Michigan is better ranked in some rankings (I know, I know, they don't consider LLM), but I've heard excellent things about UVA, so this is not an easy decision.
What is your opinion?
Thank in advance :)

Hello dnunes.

Although not directly related to the Uni's reputation and stand, i would consider the recent events that took place in Charlottesville. You know, the whole neo-nazi rally and etc.

Considering your position as an immigrant (and a Latino, according to your profile), that is something to be considered for sure.

Thanks for your answer, MV20178. Yes, this is a concern about UVA. I have talked to former students about this, they've calmed me down, but it's hard not to worry about an issue like this one.

I would really like to know about how effective their career services are for LLM students who want to stay in US during OPT, but I can't find much info about it.Do you know anything about this?

Not sure if it is my place, but I think it is wrong to link the horrible events in Charlottesville to the place or community.

The events in Charlottesville were protested against heavy by the local population. And they are still fighting/about to fight in the courts to prevent this from happening again. It was not carried by the community, but it were a LOT of outside people coming to Charlottesville. So basically, this could have happened anywhere else where they were about to bring a statue down and white nationalists got their sights on for a "Unite the Right" rally.

Also, they actually wanted to march again this year for the anniversary of the last march. It was denied by Charlottesville.

It really should not be linked to the place or the population. I get your concern, but I think this should not scare you in terms of going to Charlottesville. They could go anywhere where they are about to bring a statue down... (Let's hope not, of course)

Quite on the contrary, if anything Charlottesville seems to be a close and helping community like no other, especially on campus as well. (Which I derive from all the things alumni have to say)

Kind regards

Completely agree. There is much more to be said, but I'll resist the urge.

Hi guys, this is exactly what I have been told and what has calmed me down about this issue :)

I've seen you applied to UVA, are you going to attend the program?

So sorry, only reading this now!

Should it still be of interest: I am really hoping to attend UVA. I have had great talks with the Dean and alumni and received a good scholarship. I paid the deposit and really want to go.

Unfortunately it still depends on outside funding. I am waiting on decisions from other external bodies on whether or not they will give me a scholarship to study an LL.M., and only if this will be the case I will be able to go to Virginia. Fingers crossed!

What about you?
