GULC (Securities and Financial Regulation) vs BU (Banking and Financial Law)

Which is better?
I undertand that GULC is ranked higher, but I am concerned with the worse than average student/faculty ratio (13.2) (wheras BU students/faculty ratio is much better (12.3.)).

I am not going to work in the US, but want to get the best value for money (i.e. study legal subjects, improve English, list the university in my CV).

Your thoughts are much appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Thank you, Lisbon for your input. The primary concern is a bad student/faculty ratio. I just fear to be a passive listener and I want to have the opportunity to discuss issues in classes and improve my English. 400 LL.M students is quite a large number...

The difference between the GULC and BU is that the BU banking program has (i) its specific faculty which is real and experienced professionals, (ii) its own courses and its own facilities, whereas the GULC program is under the general LLM program then students personalize their own concentration according to the concentration requirements. I think if you really want to be in the financial world, the BU program is the best. (don't get impressed by the ranking which is used only for JD students, because some good ranked law schools don't necessarily have good LLM programs). All depends on what you want as knowledge.

Good luck

If someone needs an Interactive form for the INTERNATIONAL STUDENT VISA STATUS QUESTIONNAIRE to be filled for obtaining I-20 or DS-2019 from GULC, they can download the same from the following link.

and regarding your query, I think you should go to GULC instead of BU, don't be bothered with absolute figures like student faculty ratio, I have spoken to a lot of students from GULC, it's a misconception, that you will not get the requisite attention and different subject wise classes will have different student to faculty ratio.
U.N. research says it is never the class size that affects a student's ability to learn but the quality of teaching. If the professor is not able to keep you captivated, no matter how small the class size, you won't learn jack shit out of it.
DC is a fantastic location, GULC is one of the top programs as far as securities and financial regulations are concerned and offers you far more opportunities for internship.
