UVA vs NYU


Airy

admitted to both UVA and NYU. Got a 15,000 at UVA.
My initial desire was to go to NYC. NYU has the specialization I'm interested in (Corporations), more interdisciplinary courses, better brand name outside the US.
If I choose NYU, however, I'll have to take a loan of appr USD 15,000-20,000, which is a bit scary these days.

On the other hand, UVA has a good law school and seems to be and a really nice place to spend a year in.

Any thoughts in favour of either of them?
any strong reasons not to choose UVA?

It's my dilemma too, but I'll chose UVA because of the smaller LLM class, the possibility to have all courses with JD students and the great small city.

Does anybody know how much applications UVA receives for the LLM? As they only have about 30 places each year and mostly the ratio of acceptance is 1/7-1/10.

agree to the idea of going to UVA.

apart from the advantages which have been set forth above, UVA has a very loose policy to allow its LLM student to transfer to its JD program without LSAT.
