UCLA vs NYU


Here I am

Good afternoon from Seoul



I simply like to know which school is better in my case



I and my husband applied for llm program this year.



Though we got admission from UCLA, NYU only offered admission to me.



Also, I got dean’s award from both of schools.



I am not sure NYU is much better even though I and my husband have to live apart.



I would like to know about your opinion and why



Thanks in advance!

Congrats. For your LLM degree, are you going to live apart from your husband? I do not think it is worthwhile to do that. I will support your decision if your goal is to get Phd. But, it is a kind of just terminal degree.

Depends on your goals. If you want to stay after the LLM, if you return to Seoul, or if you plan to pursue an PhD (then, would be useful to create a networking in the university where you intend to take the PhD, but not mandatory).

I would choose UCLA since you both have been accepted and California is a great place to live with costs similar to NY.

Further, holding an LLM degree you can sit at both California and NY bar, therefore, it doesn't matter if you go to NYU or UCLA. Either way you gonna have the (tough) route to work in US to become a qualified lawyer and to get a job as a foreign lawyer.
If UCLA course fits at your interests, just go. Both law schools are renowned, with great teaching and employability, and well placed in the academic rankings (THE - NYU 7th x UCLA 22th, and QS - NYU 8th x UCLA 26th).
After all, both are excellent master degrees with the same weight, but in different places.
