Are all US LLM's the same price?

Hi MMend
thanks for brightening the situation
According to your reply I'm thinking about working during the 1 year studies because I want to earn money at least for living in US, I'm thinking about working in restaurant or shop nothing connected with law
Moreover I would like to ask you guys what are your impressions about doing LLM in US is it really worth to make such an effort and pay so much money. I have been also thinking about doing LLM in United Kingdom, it's cheaper closer and you can get there by low cos airlines
Are there any people here who have made LLM in UK??
thanks for all reply

Hi Ceeder,

I would say it again - as I holder of F-1 type visa you are not eligible to work. In addition, in order to be issued such a visa, you need to provide an American Embassy with an I-20 form issued by a school where you have been admitted, such issuance will be possible only after you have provided to your school a proof that you have sufficient funds for the entire course of studies. Sufficient funds should cover all your tuition and living expenses...

Hope it sheds some light...

Not at all mate. U.F., one of the most respected, is a state school. Ergo, you get to reap the benefits of the Florida taxpayers even if you aren't a resident per their statutes. Out of state tuition is attractive, in state is down right gorgeous. B.U. is about $7g a year less than Northwestern / NYU / Georgetown. I've seen most top programs around $40g. $25 sounds pretty good to me with seat deposits coming due...

DO NOT go to UC Davis. Avoid ALL UC schools at all cost. here's the reasons:

1. Sacramento is the only big city near UC Davis, and Sac NEVER hires any foreign students. They are extremely exclusive. So don't waste your $$ in Sac.

2. All UCs have BAD career centers because career counselors are civil servants, so they have no motivation to get you a job.

3. All UCs increased their tuition this year cuz of budget deficit in CA. They disproportionally increased foreign student/out of state tuition. So, you will have to pay TOO MUCH for bad education.

4. Don't go to state/public school. You'll get way better education in private schools.

I agree regarding the quality of these public institutions, along with California-Berkeley (which is known colloquially as "Cal") and perhaps the Univ. of Wisconsin. They are much more respected than the vast majority of private institutions in the US.

One thing to remember....LLM programs are viewed as a "cash-generator" for the bulk of American law schools. LLM programs are cheap to administer and very profitable. Therefore, there is no incentive for LLM programs to charge low tutition.
