Columbia or Harvard or Yale or Stanford?

Hi everyone, I wonder where those of you who are admitted to two of these Universities will enroll? While all of them have some advantages, there is certainly a decision to be made. How will you decide?

Wow! What an amazing selection! It depends what your goal is I suppose. Columbia is great if you want to find work in NYC during your LLM to start shortly after, it's the big firms' premier recruiting ground. Yale is the world's leading law school. Their curriculum is more academically rigorous, and is a super small intake so a lot of individual attention - perfect for those aiming fore law scholarship, you'd get straight on tenure track by attending Yale. However, given it's amazing reputation you could easily land a job at a big firm if that's what you wanted too. Can't go wrong with HLS or SLS either, both will offer more typical college experiences and look great on the CV

Big Con~ If you go to academic area, I would suggest you go to Harvard, since Harvard places its SJD so well, their SJD graduates would go to Harvard, UVa and Conell. If you go to law firm, Harvard or Columbia, either is OK. Big con~ again

Difficult choice, but you can't go wrong with any of those. Yale is best for academics, whereas Harvard is a name and Columbia is good with regards to their business placements. Because of the program size I would go for Yale. With Yale on your CV you'll find a job as a lecturer anywhere you want, in case this is of interest of course

I would select between Harvard, Yale or Stanford... in my opinion these schools are on other league than Columbia.

Then I would review the program that I liked most and that would be my decision.

You have to search a program with ADR specilizations (include arbitrations)... I know that the best options are Ohio State and Pepperdine.
