Harvard vs. Columbia vs. NYU for human rights

Hi everyone! I hope you all have received positive answers to your applications. I’ve been lucky enough to be admitted to three of my dream schools: Harvard, Columbia, and NYU. I work in human rights. I know Harvard is the most prestigious one, but I also think Columbia and NYU offer good opportunities in human rights. Which one will you choose? Thank you!

This is a very tough question to answer! Nevertheless, I think the answer lies more in your personal choices i.e., which areas of human rights do you want to explore and which university holds more strength for exploring such areas. You can also look into some professors' profiles in each university to understand their expertise in your areas and if that aligns with your career goals or personal research interests.  All three law schools that you mentioned are prominent for human rights but if you consider global ranking and worldwide recognition, then HLS surely outstands the other two. I hope it helps you a bit and I would be curious to know where you eventually end up.
