I am facing the same question. I also got accepted to both with a partial scholarship offer from BU. Still debating where to matriculate. have to send the deposit before the 29th of this month.
Georgetown is the best school in the DC area and number 2 in international law....

I would easily choose Georgetown, just because it is a better law school and D.C. is a great city to live in. Unless you are offered a scholarship or something at BU.

Partial scholarship. this is what makes this decision hard to make. At the end of the day we are making it is an investment in time and ressources, accordingly , which school do you think offers better employment prospects?

definitely go for Georgetown... although boston is an excellent school and i will also apply for the banking llm... however in the end the name of the school counts... and georgetown is far better... apparently both in the US and internationally... the partial scholarship is appealing now but then think career wise...

I agree...
You will learn the same in both universities...both are great and have outstanding professors (though, BU is a little bit better in this field of law...)...but afterwards, once you get on the street looking for a job (or comeback to your country) GT is greater deal than BU.
I would go to GT...
Anyway, whatever your decision is...you can't go wrong...
