Hi people,

I need some help!!

I got into the Boston University (general LLM) and into Georgetown (Two-Year LL.M. with Certificate in American Legal English for International Students) .

I really don't know which to choose. I think that both are on the similar level, so I really don´t know where to enroll. I would like to concenrate on Business/Corporation Law. Could you give me, please, some advise.
Thx to all..

Hi
I remember that three years ago I had exactly the same problem and, at the end, I chose BU.
Why? Because:
- Boston is an International city packed with students coming from all around the world;
- BU is an excellent university and the rankings do not reflect BU's level;
- BU Law is tailored on your individual needs and goals;
- BU's professors and staff are very nice and will always do their best to help you in any respect;
- BU is very much appreciated by lawfirms;
- BU Law is internationally regarded as one of the best law schools in the country.

BU Law was probably one of the most exciting and enriching experiences of my life. BU Law opened my mind both from a legal point of view and a cultural point of view. It strengthened my legal skills, gave me the possibility to develop a significant network of people all over the world and made me much more confident in addressing problems.

I freally hope that you will choose BU...I promess you'll never regret it.

I remain at your entire disposal should you need further infromation!

Hi,
thank you for your message! Honestly, maybe I´m little more for BU as well. As you wrote, Boston (what I heard ) is amazing city. Second thing is the way they behave. I spoke to John Riccardi (the interview) and he was very kind and helpful. It was more personal to speak to someone from the Uni (eventhough at the beginning I was nervous.. :-)).
Maybe I would have one question to you. Does BU help international students if they would like (after completing LLM) to practise in some international law firm? Because, I would like to stay one more year and practise law there in Boston and then come back to Prague to work for their Prague office.

Thx again ;-)

Hello guys,
I saw in your posts that you were already accepted in BU. So i suppose you have had an interview with them before you got accepted.

I am from Bulgaria and have a law degree from there but i live in Boston for 2 years already. Could you please help me with some info , how is the interview and how should i prepare for it.
Thank you very much in advance !

Hi!
Don´t worry, the interview is not that bad. I was speaking to Mr. John Riccardi and he was very kind and helpful when I had some question. I would recommend you to go through some other discussion about this (http://www.llm-guide.com/board/68005/3).
I was asked:
Why I want to pursue LLM in US?
Why I want ti study LLM in BU?
My admired specialization?
What are my future plans?
And some other questions relating to students from my country...

I think there is nothing to be afraid of..

I would have one question to you: how difficult is to find a small flat for rent?

Thx and good luck with your interview

HI,
Thank you very much for the advice. It is very helpful to me.
Regarding renting an apartment , I would suggest you to look in craigslist.com i guess it shouldn't be hard to find one. If you want something close to BU look in the areas of Allston and Brighton.If you have any other questions feel free to ask me.
Thanks again and good luck !

You are totally right!
BU is different from the other universities since the beginning: they care about you!
So go for it...do not hesitate, you'll not regret it.

can some one give me an idea how to ask and when to ask for a fee waiver. and to what extent can I ask for the fee waiver. I guess fee waivers are different from scholarship ...
