George Washington v. Georgetown v. UCLA


I am planning to take LLM from this fall semester.
If I was not taking IP specialized courses, I would not have hard time choosing the school.
Perhaps, UCLA = Georgetown>George Washington.
Just decision is to be made as to in which part of the states to live.

But since IP is so famous in GW, I am really having trouble choosing one.
In fact, it is my opinion that the sequence would be George Washington > Georgetown = UCLA.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

GW is an excellent school. I went there and have never regretted it - apart from the fact that you're a few blocks from the Whitehouse, there are endless networking events and other initiatives that enrich your DC experience and probability of getting hired (if that's your goal). I became a partner at a firm in DC after my GW experience - and I am a foreign trained att. Their IP program is excellent and the school is like, 20 mins from the Patent and Trademark office - you can't beat that with a stick.  I'd stay away from California altogether tbh! Good luck.

hi jitana! Why stay away from los angeles from your point of view? Is it the low hiring chances or any other reasons? I am currently deciding wherher i should go to usc or ucla instead of london, thus i’d appreciate your comments on la! Thanks in advance :)

Hi Jitana! I have been accepted to Georgetown with 25K scholarship and GWU with 40K scholarship. GT is a T14 school while GWU isn't. How important are rankings? Given that both are in DC I am really confused about which to choose and which would be more beneficial for my professional aspirations, i.e. getting US work experiene in int'l organizations/govt agencies/research centres? I am a foreign trained attorney with 10 years PQE but I don't intend on getting into a law firm. 

Your perspective would be immensely helpful!

I realize I haven’t been able to write about what “normal” life at Georgetown...
