Georgetown x UCLA $$ + your take on my future


silvi0

Alrighty folks. Good ol' comparison post here. I got admitted to GULC (no scholarship) and UCLA (30K scholarship), and although it might look like a no-brainer, I'd like to hear you out. I'm fresh off my 5-year LL.B. and I'll seek a career in international law after my LL.M. With that being said, I have two equally strong wishes regarding my career prospects, and I'll pick the one that is most likely to happen after the LL.M. : (1) pursing and S.J.D. in my field and obtaining and academic position in the US afterwards; (2) landing an entry level legal job at an international organization in the US.

- How likely is it for an LL.M. student to be admitted to an S.J.D program right after the LL.M.? I believe UCLA would take that exceptionally while Georgetown depicts this possibility as a huge farfetch. What do you think?

- Washington D.C. is full of opportunites in international law. So what's in store for me in LA after the LL.M. ?

Thanks!

UCLA - with great grades you can get into the SJD at UCLA. The faculty are top-rated researchers and academics!

DC- coming straight out of university with no experience your prospects are not very good as an LLM grad. 

Good luck with your choice - However if it seems like a no-brainer decision, it probably is!

30000 is a lot of money. Getting a job after the LLM is really hard if you want to stay.  those 30000 mean a smaller loan easier to pay with a just graduated job. I would go to UCLA here no doubt. Good luck
