Financial Aid decisions are out. Lucky to have been granted 40k, probably will enroll there unless equal aid is given by NU....


Congrats! Is Northwestern University better than Georgetown from a future job perspective?


Northwestern is ranked higher than GT. When did you hear from Northwestern? I am getting anxious since I haven't heard back yet.

I think Georgetown is better. Not only you see more LLMs from GT in big law, but also GT is better located in DC where many law firms have offices, and several events and networking opportunities take place.

Is there any trustworthy US LLM ranking, especially for internationals (like most people doing an LLM are anyway)?

I don't know if I should simply accept the offer of the highest ranked program that admits me, using the usual JD tiers (T3, T6, T14); or if the LLM program of some schools greatly exceeds their JD reputation.

For example I know that NYU's Tax LLM is so reputed that attending it could make more sense than getting even a Harvard generalist LLM. Which goes to show that LLM rankings could be different than JD rankings

And, at least based on what's stated on its website, Georgetown's LLM seems to make a lot of sense if you want to take the NY bar exam. So it should punch above its JD ranking.

Thus far I've been admitted by Chicago, Berkeley, UCLA. Waiting to hear from Harvard, Stanford, NYU generalist, Duke, Georgetown. Out of those unis, should I just pick Chicago because it's the only T6 and over thus far? What if NYU or Stanford admits me?

And yeah, I know there's this thing called personal fit. But we all know in the legal profession reputation matters a looooot, so higher reputation will be the deciding factor.

edit: Actually, Harvard is a great example of this topic. To US nationals, Yale Law is the most reputed school. But ask any international and the answer is Harvard; which matters a lot because the vast, vast majority of people doing top US LLM's are internationals.

So, given the reality that 99% of people doing a US LLM will go back to work at their home country on the long term, and that even if you pass the NY bar at the end of the day it will be just a nice diploma on your wall, then Harvard's LLM should be higher ranked than Yale's. Am I right or wrong?

edit 2: I just noticed there's a similar ranking on this website. "Most popular worldwide", following the same logic. Guess what I'll do is Harvard if admitted, then it would be Stanford vs Chicago, and that's it. Because NYU and Berkeley are less selective than Chicago; and overall it'd be weird picking second best in its home turf if I could pick the best.

Where did you find data on LLMs? I could only find the ABA Employment Summary for 2022 graduates, which indicates that Northwestern sent a higher percentage of graduates to BigLaw.

I think there is no such a thing, because the hiring of LLMs depends on many different and contingent factors. For example, if you are a Brazilian lawyer working for the Brazilian office of a BigLaw firm, your chances of being hired are higher. There are also a number of elements to bear in mind: networking, events, your firm's support, etc. Assembling all these factors, I think GT is better when it comes to job opportunities as it's located in DC, where you can find a world of networking and job opportunities.

Sure, the decision depends on many factors. However, if we are to generalize, then GT appears more government and international organizations oriented due to its location in D.C. Additionally, it admits around 550 llm students, potentially offering a less personalized educational experience, distant relationships with faculty, and less tailored career center assistance. These are some of the drawbacks for me.
If only there were more reliable data on LLM employment...

I absolutely agree with you on the factors that we can consider as "drawbacks" of GT. I don't like at all the size of the class. Likely is less qualified than other reduced LLMs.





But I'll tell you what a friend of mine (who went to Columbia and has been working in big law in NYC for 3 years now) told me. I was admitted by UPenn, NYU, and I hope GT admits me as well. We can agree that UPenn has more prestigious internationally and in the US itself. Rankings prove that. However, he told me that if he was me, he would choose NYU and GT over UPenn, based on the location. While it's true that GT is more governmental or international organizations oriented, it's also true that many big law offices and events take place in DC. Not only that: Georgetown appears to do much more that other universities -like UPenn- to place their students at jobs. Bear in mind that everything said is applicable to foreign LLM students, not to JDs.





However, let me say that Northwestern is a great university. So, any decision you take is gonna be fine. At the end of the day, what it really matters is for you to get the most of the experience and smartly conduct research on jobs and networking endeavors.





In my case, I would choose UPenn over GT. But let's see what weight scholarships have on this decision.
