Georgetown or U of Florida for Tax


kstar3001

I've just received my acceptance letter from UF and I am now deciding between UF and Georgetown for the Tax LLM (I have yet to hear from NYU).

Which program is better as far as job prospects for working either on the East Coast or in CA?

Also, is the Florida program through the summer?

Any opinions are welcome

Thank you!!

I believe that GULC without a doubt has better job prospects. From what I heard the only disadvantage U of Florida has is its weakness with networking and job prospects in most areas in the US.

I will choose UF over GULC.

As an Int'l student, I'm not really worried about the UF's weak job placement (as I will probably return to my home country afterwards), but with its superior education. In the other hand, GULC seems like a great place to study and DC is certainly a great palce to live.

Obviously, the UF tuition made everything easier for me.


See you all in Gainesville!

I'm planning on going into estate planning and not solely tax-anyone know which program is better, Georgetown or UF for estate planning?

Is the UF program 9 months or a full year?

It seems a summer term is optional and that you can complete the courses with two sememsters if you choose to.
The brochure says: "Courses for the degree are designed to be completed in two semesters and a summer term. Students considering completing the program over a different period of time should consult the director prior to starting."
But I think you should check with the school to be sure.
Anyway, the summer term is supposed to be over by July 6 in the 2009-2010 academic year.

From my meeting with Dean Friel, I gather that it is totally up to you. If you want to really load up on classes and finish by May, no problem; alternatively, if you want to save your writing assignment until the summer, that's fine too.

University of Florida, gives students an ability to pursue trust and estates (estate planning direction). I don't know if you have ever been to Gainesville, but it is your classic college town and it a nice campus. I am a Florida Resident so UF is no brainer for me with the tution cost and the status of the economy right now. Speaking with Dean Friel during my visit to UF he said that the ability to go nationally in the job market is there and that it just takes more student commitment. However, i am probably not the best to ask being a Florida resident and having no problem staying in the state of Florida.

When did you visit UF?
So have you made up your mind to enroll at UF?

"it is your classic college town and it a nice campus."

See, that's a problem for most applicants. They'd rather be in the town which gives them greatest chance for employment, not your classic college town.

Maybe biglaw is looking in Gainesville? But no way it competes with NYU or D.C. for jobs. In-state tuition is UF's only advantage over GULC, imo.

Think it speaks volumes that UF does not participate / is not invited to TIP along with NYU and GULC.

It seems that you got accepted last year. What's your story? Did you enroll at NYU and get a job and stuff?

Creepy, dude. Did you look through my posting history?

Otherwise, I'm not sure what your observation proves. Just that I looked at both schools and preferred one over the other. I listed those reasons above.

Sorry to creep you out, dude.
Actually, it's easy to look through someone's posting history. You have only to click on that person's screen name. And I was bored.
I was not trying to prove anything. I was just curious whether you found doing an L.L.M in a big city worth all the extra cost after actually doing it. I think it could help networking, but the economy may have made it less meaningful.
