I also checked the appropriate box in the application form but I haven't heard about the admission yet. They will send a separate form to the admitted students. So, as you are already admitted, have you got the forms for the certificate?

Yes, I got the forms with my admissions packet. I emailed the director today to see if it is possible to enroll in the 3 summer courses at Stern without enrolling in the LLM program as I really want to go to Georgetown in the fall. If so I'll probably do it because I really need to do something academic this summer. I was just wondering if anyone else has decided to do this program, and see where people were going to live this summer, etc.

So, you are choosing Georgetown over NYU? Any special reasons? You applied for Tax program, right? Isn't NYU's program better than GULC. Have you got any scholarship from any of these?

Sorry for asking too many questions, just wanted to know what is your criteria for choosing GULC. I am admitted to GULC and Northwestern so far. So, I will have also have to choose very soon!

Yeah, I do have a number of reasons. First, I have not heard about scholarships yet from either school. My reason for choosing GULC though is because I am really interested in tax policy & legislation, NOT corporate tax. I have no desire to ever work for a law firm again!! If I did, I'd be heading to NYU. So I am choosing GULC because I'll get to network with government officials and policy makers, take classes taught by tax court judges and legislators, do an externship on Capitol Hill in the spring... all opportunities that don't exist in NYC. NYC is certainly the best if you are interested in corporate and finance, as it is the center of the business universe, whereas DC is the center of the lawmaking universe. All that said, it has been really tough to swallow turning down NYU when it is such an honor to be accepted there. But I feel that GULC is the best path for me personally. Good luck with your choice, I know it is tough, especially when you are lucky enough to have to choose between such great programs as GULC and Northwestern!!

I want to congratulate you for not relying on narcissism when choosing a law school!
I was considering Florida at first for the quality of teachers and possible academic contacts. But after learning more about GT I am leaning toward them now. Great program! but all three of them are great actually.
As for the certificate program I am almost certain that it is not available for non NYU students. But the certificate is useless on my opinion. Good bonus but shouldn't be a decisive factor. You can buy a certificate from any business school if you really want to.
