American U. Vs George Washington Vs Cardozo


sakar

Dear All,
I am asking for some help here choosing the right school.
I was admitted at American University, George Washington University, Cardozo and University of Georgia. I am interested in International Law (International Business Law). I am trying to take a decision but it is not easy since all of these schools are good ones.
Can anybody advise me which would be best for the program that I am interested in?
Also: do you have any advices regarding funding?I was not admitted for a scholarship or a fellowship program and I am having some hard time finding funding for an International student. I live in the States for 4 years now but I am still being considered International since my degree was taken in Europe.
Thanks all in advance and good luck to everybody!

Cardozo seems to the best out of all though GWU ranks better. NY has an edge.

Congratulations!
I would like to recommend Cardozo; it is not that the others are not as good as Cardozo, it is just because that they are basicaly close in terms of fame. There goes with the consideration of your own background, as you have had education experience in Europe, and Cardozo locates in NY, where is the center of the international trade, can your european's educational background give you an attractive feasure when you look for a job in NY (suppose) after you finish international business law study in a NY territorial law school? I think any benifits of personal background for future work career might be better to be prepared as of the time being. Does it make any sense? The advantage might be the high expenses to live in NY. Good Luck!

Thank you all for your responses.
I have been granted the Dean's Scholarship for Cardozo and I have narrowed my choice to Cardozo and George Washington.
The financial side is my only concern.
I have not decided if I want to look up for a job in NY first since I have no practical experience and ity might be quite hard to find something. Plus all jobs for LLM students there are in the area of Taxation...
On another hand American and George Washington U are both ranked good and George Washington U is even in the top 20 in the US. So I am still very confused.
I do not know anything about the curriculum and the alumni at either of the schools.
Anyone with advice?
Thanks again to all and good luck!!

Hi again,
Well, after the scholarship amount I still have to pay exactly as much as the whole tuition at GWashington U. Plus NYC is a very expensive place to live. I really don;t know what to do...Good luck with your decision making process.

Hey,
Good question, tough decision. I too applied to American and GW but am still waiting to hear back. I had a cousin that went to AU and said that even though the LLM program is less under the radar, it is definitely underrated. I know that GW has a good reputation, but I checked US news and world report and AU's Intl Legal studies program is ranked top five in international law ABOVE GW...which I found surprising. So even though AU's law school is ranked lower, the actual program is ranked higher. Plus, I want to focus in human rights, and I heard their program is better.

As for scholarship money, I know that AU does do some tuition waivers, but not much. IIE (institute for intl education) offer scholarships, so I guess that's a start.

Anyways, good luck to you!

Hey,
Thanks for the response.
WelI, I missed the deadline for deposit for AU and I am not receiving an email from them even though I sent 2 of these.
GW are not being very responsive either. Cardozo's team though is extremely student oriented and I am receiving responses from them the same day I send a question.
Maybe you will get an answer from AU soon.
I wish you luck.
I have to decide this weekend so if you have any information for me - please help!

Hey,
That's good that Cardozo is quick with responses. AU's email ppl have been pretty good with my stuff. Either way, could you ask for an extension for the deposit? I've heard other schools do that before.

NYC is great for business, but DC is a better place to be for political and human rights interests. Since I'm looking into human rights, I'm hopefully going with AU. Are you thinking intl business?

Yes, I am thinking International Business Law. I don't know how much future there is in it but I hope it will be good.
You can have an extension of the deadline, I have had it already with Cardozo.
Well you have to go to DC then if you are planning Human Rights.
