    UVA would be my choice. They (a) have won and regularly compete for the NCAA Championship (b) have a beautiful campus (c) have ACC athletic events and to attend (d) are often ranked in the top 25 National Universities and (e) have lower tuition than most schools.

    Runners up: JHU – all of the above but not as nice a campus or as much to do there. Also, higher tuition. Duke – all of the above but have never won the title, coaches have not won the title and higher tuition. UNC all of the above but, again, coaches have not won the title. “Cuse – great lacrosse but not as nice a campus or as prestigious academically.

    The University of Virginia, no question. Great town, outstanding academics, lovely campus just a few hours from my hometown of Baltimore. Perfect social life, beautiful women. Program is obviously top notch and Starsia is a great person. What else could you possibly want?

    Obviously UVA would be awesome

    But at the moment, I dont want to play D1, I want to play D3.
    So Wesleyan would be the coolest place to go. AMAZING academics, great program, perfect size and location, and a beautiful campus
