Which is better?

Hello fellow llm seekers,

I'm not done yet with law school, i'll be finishing in December 2008 when i dissert my thesis (graduation paper). I'm panamanian (born in The Republic of Panama), and i guess i'll just throw in this query to get some feedback and light on my LLM picking.

I'm interested in:
LSE - LLM
NYU - Trade Regulation LLM,
UNIL (Laussanne) and Buccerius (Germany) - for their MBLs

I speak French, English, Spanish and i'm currently learning Mandarin.
I scored a 112 on the iBT TOEFL.
I wrote my graduation thesis on "Dumping in Panama". (driven by a soon coming free trade agreement with the US with Panama).
I was not top of my class, more like in the mushy middle but i do count with some extracurricular activities like music (which is my alter ego really and i'm affiliated with musical foundations over here).

I guess i just want to know what my chances are and just posting this to seek some advice from more expirienced folk.
I must admit this stage is pretty scary.
Which of these LLM's can land me a good job opportunity and at most a grade A quality education?

Definitely LSE-LL.M. World Class and better known. Top 5 law school ranking in the UK. What more can you ask for. I think New York is probably a bit more expensive.

QSWE

dont know anything about ur chances as i am hanging off the tight rope myself but surely in case of lse, extracurriculars like those mentioned by you (having no relation to law) wont be of any benefit. But ur experience as a para-legal might be of good import, especially if u could mention any major cases in which u carried out research.

OpinioJuri...

Although NYU in recent years has dramatically improved its programme, there is no doubt that the universal appeal of a degree from the London School of Economics would make it a much more attractive programme, especially with the redevelopment of the British Library of Political and Economic Science (Lionel Robbins Building). Most professors who teach at the LSE are authors of well-known textbooks prescribed in many British universities. LSE is also known throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States.
