So.. I have finally decided to let go of my King's offer and stick to QMUL since QMUL has better IP modules and the reputation for IPR.. I just hope it is the right decision.. Got my IELTS exam on 16th May, 2015.

NYU performs better in overall LLM rankings, see for example this one for 2015 http://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2015/law-legal-studies#sorting=rank+region=+country=+faculty=+stars=false+search=

Set aside the rankings, NYU is traditionally strong in corporate law and international arbitration, in case that is where you wish to focus. Plus, the US teaching viewpoint is quite distinctive on its own and combined with the opportunity of living in New York adds up to an unmissable experience.

Of course, that's only my opinion. I would advise you to compare faculty members and subjects in the area you wish to study and take into account your goals after graduation (do you wish to work in the US or in the UK etc.).

First of all, if you really want good advice, state the true facts here. Secondly, from what I can scan through your previous queries, you have mentioned that you've NOT got a scholarship from NYU and now all of a sudden you are saying that you got a scholarship from NYU; leaving UCL aside for the moment.

NYU is a great institution and has globally reputed International Business law and Taxation law LL.M programs.

On the other hand, UCL is also an equally great institution and has some of the best LL.M. programs to offer.

Now, the question is what factors have you considered before applying to these universities (as far as I know, students who apply here and at top institutions have the tendency to research beforehand (asking alumnis, teachers, perusing blogs, articles, rankings etc.).

Is it the location that excites you?; is it the preferred specialization you aspire for?; the budgetary expenses incurred can be managed?(taking into account that US is expensive than UK); the more reputed law school worldwide and at your home country (employers etc.) out of the two.

To cut it short, go for UCL if u cant afford NYU (no scholarship). And if by chance u have both the scholarships, then go for NYU.

Well again it depends on the area of law preferred by you. So please kindly share some information about what you want to pursue if u need a succinct and detailed reply.

Plus here are some(.01%) of the discussions you can refer to:

Hi guys!

Does anyone know whether it is possible to be reassesed by UCL after rejection?
I messaged the admissions office asking for a feedback and then after a brief exchange of emails the admission officer told me that she will forward my reassessment/ detailed feedback request to the Admissions tutor.

Do you know whether there is a slight change that the admissions tutor will reasses my application?

Thanks
