Berkeley at Sticker v. Vanderbilt with Scholarship


Kavelaw
Hi!

I've got a decent scholarship at Vanderbilt partially covering tuition and have been offered a place in Berkeley with no scholarship. Which of these schools would be preferable to pursue an LL.M in corporate/business law?

As a current Boalt student, I do recommend Berkeley Law where you will be finding a number of business law courses through your academic year.

As we are are aware that Boalt is the top leading law school in IP, it doesn't mean that it wouldn't​ concentrate on other areas of legal studies. Kindly check the business law program for fall 2017 via it's website, I'm pretty sure it will meet your demand.

If, however, the tuition fee is your critical concern, VB may be your preferable option.

Ok, that's a tough decision, if money matters... especially if you also take the difference in cost of living into consideration, since the bay area is much more expensive than nashville...

Damn expensive! I usually pay the rental of 1350$ per month. The new rate will apply for 2017-2018!

Taking into consideration that the job market for LLM in USA is very short and the majority of the LLMs return to their home countries I would choose Vandy.

In my experience, I have seen that outside of US some schools have better reputation than other but have similar weight in the recruitment and the pay will be similiar or the same.

So financially it will better to attend Vandy and the ROI also will be better.

On rankings both are in a good spots... Berkeley at 12 and Vandy at 17 (I do not think that a diference of 5 places worth to pay $30K more... also the life cost at Berkeley is more expensive than Nashville).

I think that the only schools that worth to pay full tuition are the top 3... Yale, Harvard and Stanford.
