GW - My Choice!

By Sh in LLM in George Washington University Law School on Apr 21, 2008

Finally, I got the news of my admission. I will go to The George Washington University Law School and I am very happy about this. International and Comparative Law is my favorite and I will concentrate on International Business and Corporate Law. I like the school. It ranks 20 according to the US News and Reports Ranking and its International and Comparative Law program ranks 8 in US.

Washington DC is a very nice place and I specially like its springs. I have been there for some days before during the very nice days of spring. Being the capital of the country makes the city more attractable to the international students who want to get more familiar with the US institutes and governance. GW which a four blocks from the White House puts you in the heart of a place with high political movements. For me it is even better that I would be there during the 2008 presidential election. For example, since Hillary Clinton became a candidate, she had two speeches in GW.

In order to be more prepared, I will participate in the Pre-LLM Program which takes four weeks in Georgetown University. Again that is in DC.

Dear shayan,

Congrates on your admission!
Proud to see such passionate afghan student!

I have been getting useful information from site about US admissions and specifically university placements. Especially, I really impressed by your knowledge and its open-heartly sharing. I am also from afghanistan.

Last year I applied to the Fulbright but due to some reasons couldn't appeared in the test. This year, however, I am again applying for the fulbright.

Dear Shayan, below is my email address. I would like to be in contact with you. Though my field of study is Finance/Corporate Finance, I still hope that you can mentor me throughout the process.

Congrats on choosing GWU! I'll go to Georgetown, so I see you there in July.

Yevvvvv: The pre-LLM is designed for foreign-educated lawyers who have been accepted into an LLM program in the U.S. It offers an introduction to the U.S. legal system, legal writing, the university system, etc: http://www.law.georgetown.edu/foundations/
I don't have the exact total cost here, but it's about 5000-6000 USD (free for Fulbrighters and maybe some other scholarships aswell). There are also pre-LLM programs at UC Davis and New Orleans.

Hey! just out of curiosity, what is the pre-LLM program? How do you sign up for it, what does it cost and what are the benefits? Thanks.
