GULC vs NYU


TMS

Hi everyone!
I have doubts! I was admitted to NYU and Georgetown University LL.M. Programs. Regarding NYU I was admitted to the LL.M. International Taxation Program, while at GULC I was admitted to both General Studies and International Legal Studies LL.M. Program.
I am from Brazil and until now I don't have any kind of scholarship.
Which of the programs you think should I take? NYU or GULC? It seems to me that GULC has more attractives to international students, including chances of obtain a job in USA or even abroad. However, the International Taxation Program of NYU it's very well-known. What do you think?

Hi,

A lot of people think the NYU placement office is great and it might be easier to get a job if you go to NYU instead of GULC.

Hope this helps.

I thought that one's a no-brainer... NYU is a clear winner there in my opinion-- the Tax Prog is one of NYU's strengths... Well if tax is yr area: go for NYU if would say

In fact if i'm not mistaken tax graduates have a sep. job fair or something in NY... u could do a bit of research on that

Thank you all for the responses! Considering that I am dealing with tax since I was an intern and considering your answers, I think that NYU ITP is really the best option to my profile.
I am still waiting answer from Columbia and Harvard, but none of those have a so recognized tax program as NYU, right?
My impression about GULC be more attractive to international students is the fact that I have some friends that went GULC were able to find a job USA after LLM. In relation to NYU, I have two friends that didn't get any job there....maybe this is just a coincidence..
Master of Laws, thank you for your tip regarding a separate job fair to tax graduate students. I'll look for more information on this.
Regards to all!

I think if you want to specialize in taxation, NYU is a better option (specially taking into account that you were admitted to GULC´s General Studies program). Regarding the ITP, I am current student and I can tell you that the tax LLMs at NYU have the following NYU-sponsored opportunities to land jobs in the US: fall on-campus interviews (October), International Students job fair (January), Spring on-campus interviews (February) and DC Tax LLM job fair (February). In addition, you can also find a job by your own means. Regarding your real chances to find a job, I can tell you that it will depend a lot on your LLM grades and your job connections in Brazil. If you have top grades, you may find a permanent position in NY; if you don´t have top grades (but decent ones) and good contacts in your country (i.e. you worked for a big firm) you will be able to land a temporary position (1 year); if you have decent grades and you want to stay in the US for a longer period after the completion of the LLM, Big 4s may be your best option. For the time being, my fellow ITPs are doing well in the job search.

Hi everyone!
at GULC I was admitted to both General Studies and International Legal Studies LL.M. Program.


I thought that at GULC you could only apply to one of the two. Which one did you apply to? I am surprised that you got acceptance to both.
