Hi folks, could you guys provide some advice for which LLM program listed below to choose?
1. BU -- Amercian law program without scholarship.
2. AU -- International Legal Studies Program. No scholarship yet although possible to get tuition remission in the future.
3. UC Hastings -- LLM admission with $6,000.00 scholarship
4. UCLA - no scholarship
5. Cornell - no scholarship

By the way, my boyfriend is in DC and i prefer stay here if the others are not really valuable in terms of job hunting. Thanks a lot!

Job hunting would be necessarily linked with the schools reputation. Said so, I think your better choice would Cornell. Even more, because is not that far from DC as the others (excluding AU). Anyway, Congrats!

to Teddybear and ALP78, Thanks for your guys replies.

Yes, Cornell seems more attractive. However, without scholarship, I would feel a little bit uncomforable with its high expenses.
International program at AU is pretty good. And my home is just several minutes metro distance to the campus. Even without any scholarship, I would be not that hard to face its cost.
But as ALP78 said, job hunting has such a strong association with school's reputation. So, how's job prospect to be expected? I am kind of confused with my mind facing the balance among money, school program, school reputation and future career expectation.

Hi, dear folks, if you had to make the final decision, what would you do? I'd really appreciate your opinions!

In between these, i would choose cornell or ucla, and if considered your preference in location, Cornell. but i am a business lawyer... so, i think you got to keep in mind which program suits your interest better: american, international, business, general...
Btw, Congrats Bear! you gor accepted in NYU general?

No, absolutely not. BU is excellent for its reputation, also for its location. It is just that people have their own preferances or considerations. As least for me, There are a lot elements that I have to take into account.

Do you guys consider to work in US or go back to your home country after graduation? It seems that job prospect for LLM in US is not that promising. I thought to look for a job in US after getting a LLM degree. However, either a dean of a US law school or my friends told me if I really want to develop my career in US, I'd better go for JD. But I really don't have energy to finish three-year JD program. So, I am toally lost. What do you guys think of your future?

You also have to consider that Ithaca is very far away from civilization, whereas all other schools are located in attractive metropolitan cities.
