My vote is for UVA and Duke. Don't like the GT angle.
What is funny is that someone who doesn't know the difference between "you're" and "your", and who writes "me says no" would attempt to critique the academic standing of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

In case you didn't realize, UNC is a member of the AAU and is currently ranked No. 41 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (Duke is No. 36). When you take into account the size of the universities and their alumni bases (UNC is twice as large) as well as football tradition and success, it really is an easy decision. UNC is a far more desirable target, and a better fit for the public university dominated B1G.
