Admission to Stanford


Milum

I've been admitted to Stanford (LL.M) (Corporate) and Columbia (LL.M) both for 2007/2008. However, I am very much in doubt on which to choose. Any views? My main focus areas are M&A and corporate law

Hi! Personally, I would choose CLS (corporate law professors + good reputation among law firms + leaving in NYC is a bonus). Stanford is a big name - but I guess it matters more for public service-oriented career in the US... HLS vs. CLS is a tougher dilemma, I guess...

I stongly believe Stanford opens any door for you just like Harvard and Yale, i.e. public service or private practice. Columbia is apparently not a bad choice at all but I wouldn't say HLS v CLS is a "tougher" dilemma because if you are clear about what you want, then there is no dilemma.

I only applied to Yale but I really think that the Stanford LLM is a very "elite" program.

In my view, unless you have imperative personal reasons to do so (compelling family obligations for example), its crazy to turn down Yale, Stanford or Harvard (the "Holy Trinity") to attend a lower-ranked law school.

The LLM program at Columbia doesnt seem so selective (more than 200 people attending it each year and many applicants turn down Columbia to go to Yale, Stanford, Harvard and sometimes NYU and Chicago).

Many people (LLM students of the previous years, American lawyers, even investment bankers) told me that Yale, Stanford and Harvard make a difference on a resume and I think they are completely right.

Like Yale, the Stanford experience seems to be very "unique" (ranking, employability, prestige, class size, etc) and Stanford would give you the opportunity to work in California OR in New York

I fully agree with the last post. What about HLS vs. SLS? I was admitted to SLS but am still waiting for HLS decisions... What do you think about it?
