HELP - GW or Duke?


FM2010

I'm thinking very positively here and assuming I get into the LLM in both of these schools - can anyone give me some advice on which they would accept?? People who have previously attended either, in particular?

Thanks in anticipation!

Consider GW if you want to study IP. If not, go to Duke. I have heard that the GW campus really sucks bigtime. Moreover Duke is better ranked.

You can't compare GW with Duke.

Duke is a top ten university. Not only the law school but all of Duke's grad schools and its college are consistently ranked among the best 10 of the country. Duke law is especially good at IP, financial markets and environmental law.

Besides, Duke's campus might be the most beautiful ever. If you want to know more about life at Duke read "I am Charlotte Simmons" by Tom Wolfe.

Only go to GW if they give you a full tuition scholarship.

I will check the book.

It might well be that I actually have to decide between both (as both universities did accept me) and I tend to choose Duke over GW as most people I know are very very positive about their Duke experience. But again, I will read the book...

More than one million people live in the so called triangle around Duke, which is also the fastest growing area in the US -- so that's actually quite good. Besides, other top schools (e.g. Yale and Princeton) are also not in one of the big towns. Of course, if you're looking for the big city you should go to NYC.

Talking about securities, I'd even go so far and say that Duke's James Cox is the leading scholar in national and international securities law.

I also wouldn't worry about law firms, if you're going to a top ten law school. You will have to graduate anyway before you can get a job. Meanwhile, there's enough time to look for possible employers, e.g. at the New York Job Fair for LLM students in January.

Hi guys,
I am in the position and I will accept Duke's offer.
Duke rocks when it comes to IP, Jerome Reichman and James Boyle teach there.
To sum up, duke with no doubt!!

The GW IP Program is the oldest and one of the best in the US and, at least if you trust the various rankings, it is better than Duke. But this only goes for the IP Program!!!
