HLS or Columbia or NYU

Hi all,

I was accepted in HLS and in NYU, and I am confident I will be admitted in Columbia. My main interest is human rights law and international law. I know that NYU has a great program, but Harvard is Harvard and it also has great professors and students. What would you do?

Thanks!

Honestly, I see no reason why you hesitate. If NYU offered you a full-tuition scholarship, it might be a competition. But otherwise, definitely for HLS.

Could you be more specific why HLS not CLS? I have been admitted by both schools (CLS in early round and paid the deposit already, just got HLS today) and always want to go to New York City. I have worked in an international firm's Asia office for nearly three years and practiced in FDI and MA areas. I plan to move to Hong Kong after the study and find a job as a transcation lawyer. I understand that credentials from both schools won't make big differences in finding a job, but life will be more convenient in New York City. Am I right? Thank you.

I fully agree with Roroto... I am also interested in international law and given NYU offered me a full-tutition scholarship I made my mind towards NYU (best in the field and financial aid).. however, if NYU hadnt offer me such a scholarship, I would have prefered HLS... I mean, its a matter of your goals or interests.. if you are really interested in international law regardless the "brand" chose NYU... but if not, thinks that HLS while having a respetable international law program, also gives you the best brand in the world.. which in the end, will have a very important impact on your future.. :)
CLS is also a very good law school and very well known for international law... besides, you have the opportunity of doing an internship in the United nations..
In any case, Congratulations! what a wonderful dilemma you have! hahaha

Thanks!

Again, I said the same.. if you are not mad about HLS "brand" (which is understable given its unmatted prestige) and you consider that living in NYC will be better for your career goals chose CLS... CLS is top in corparte law.... and while CLS is not so well known as HLS (outside USA of course), is still IVleage and a very good law school... you cant go wrong anyway no matter which one you pick up :)

But I did not get a full-tuition scholarship, no scholarship from CLS either. I don't know how this "HLS brand" really matters in finding a job.

I have been admitted to CLS (in early round) and NYU (with scholarship 40k) and also interested in corporate law area. I have decided to give up the scholarship and choose CLS. I think for your purpose of moving to HK, CLS or HLS won't make much difference. But your previous years' work experience will put you at advantage. So it is a choice of name or life in your case.

Yes, I think people are mad about "brand" I have spoken with many people and for job opportunities there is not much difference from any of one of the top ten law schools.. in the US market it is almost imposible (no matter you come from HLS, CLS, NYU etc) and in your homecountry -at least mine- what matters is the LLM and what you learnt there not the brand... what is really a key factor in finding a job in the states -and I guess somwhere else- is connections and work experience no the law school you attended...

so its all a matter of "where" you want to spend a year of your life doing an LLM... setting aside "name and brand" and looking only at "quality of courses and learning" there almost no different between any of the top 10 law schools..

Interesting discussions and useful advice. I am admitted to both HLS and CLS and my area of interest is international law and international arbitration. I haven't received the fin.aid package yet from both schools. I know that CLS has good courses on my area of interest but I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on what would be your choice in a circumstance where the the fin.aid of the schools would be the same.
