NYU or NW(w/$$)


Curious Y
I have been accepted to both schools, NYU and NW.

It seems NYU has sent out notices for scholarships, and since I sadly have not received any email, I have to choose schools with the options that I have now.

Northwestern has offered a scholarship (not a huge amount, but it will help), while NYU none. Between the two, is NYU the easy choice?

I worked as an inhouse counsel for 5 years, and probably will continue to work as one either here or back home. Both schools seem to be strong in corporate, which makes it hard for me to decide.

Some people say that its now more easier to get jobs in Chicago, but I am not sure if that will work in LLM graduates. Also, I am sure the chances will be similar in NY.

Any advice???

I guess you'll be ok in both of them. Both are placed well on NLJ's BigLaw job placement ranking:

1) Columbia
2) Chicago
3)NWU
4)Cornell
5) NYU

In your case I would selected NW... a very good program in a very good city plus a better size class... personally I think NYU class is too much.

Also personally I like more Chicago than NY for living and sudy.

It's strange to hear the statement above about NU...I'm currently an LLM at NU and I am very positive that the program is one of the best (if not the best) for lawyers seeking a private practice career.

I can tell from an insider perspective that Northwestern has a strong reputation in the market, business-oriented classes and a practical approach to law that top other well-known law schools in US.

My experience during classes could not have been better, the professors are very knowledgeable and approachable. Moreover, the class size is perfect, mixing LLMs with JD in an ideal number that facilitates the interaction and networking between students.

Finally, the career center of the school works closely to the students providing a valuable support. In less than 3 months from the beginning of classes I already got a job offer from a top US law firm in NY.

I highly recommend NU, specially if you look for a career in biglaw/private practice.
