Indiana University (Indianápolis) vs Tulsa university


Hi everyone, i'm an international student, and I already applied for the LLM programs of these two universities specifically for the spring therm 2013. Luckily I was admitted in both, but now I'm trying to decide which one is better for me, so I would like your opinion on the matter.

Now i'd like Just to give you some information about both universities programs and the universities themselves, so you can have an idea what I'm dealing with here.

Financially both universities are quite similar, well in principle at least because the tuition for Indiana university was significantly more expensive than tulsa's around 12.000 $ more expensive but Indiana university has awarded me an scholarship that even though it only covers around 20% of the tuition it levels the things when compare to Tulsa now the difference is just about 4000$ dollars.

When it comes to rankings well there's a difference between both institutions but is not a huge difference Indiana university is #76 in law schools ranking, and Tulsa is #99.

Both LLM are exclusive for foreing educated attorneys, but Tulsa's is energy law concentrated (at least the one I applied to), both programs consider case by case the possibility of being transfer to JD or joint degrees such as JD/MBA after concluding the LLM, and validating up to 12 credits of the program for the JD degree. which is quite important for me.

Both cities Indianapolis and Tulsa have similar city profile although Tulsa has a small sourhern town feeling while Indiana is more like an industry oriented northern city.(well that's what is it is as a matter of fact)

Both have similar demographics but apparently Tulsa is a bit safer and livable. Indianapolis seems too dependable of their suburbs for quality of life but this implies a significant commuting time since most of them are up to 20 minutes away from indianapolis.

Not the case with Tulsa since is a commuter friendly town and less dependable of it's suburbs since there a lot of good places left in the inner city.

Both cities are very car oriented and public transportation although not disasterous, is not the best either.

Well that pretty much sums it up anything else you want to know feel free to ask, all I want is you to help decide according to your personal opinion and considering all the factors mentioned above which one would you pick?

Bye and thanks in advance

Probably not.

Re your topic, I'd say Indiana.

Between those two, Indiana is a no brainer. Tulsa is very boring compared with Indianapolis. And, IU has a better reputation overall than Tulsa.

Just in case because I know it can be a bit tricky sometimes, I'm talking about IUPUI (Indiana university- purdue university Indianapolis) I know IU and IUPUI are part of the same university system, but for some reason I still don't quite get there are significant differences, IU being the flagship of the system, and being considerably higher ranked in law schools ranking than IUPUI, the first one being #26 and the second #79 so there's has to be an important difference to justify this distance within the ranking between the two universities.

Addendum: IUPUI is not ranked in #79 spot in law shools ranking is on spot #89. Here you can find some details http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/indiana-university-indianapolis-03055

Sorry about the mistake sometimes I get confused myself, I've read about so many universities that I mix up information about different universities.

Well, my comment still remains that as a city, Indy is better than Tulsa. But, perhaps the schools academic reputations are not that far apart.
