Any other things to decide by? :)

Columbia Ivy League!!

Columbia Ivy League!!

Same decision for me, but it is tough.
Apart from the academic aspect (Columbia obviously exceptional, but NYU still very good reputation), the location probably makes a big difference. Either campus-style Columbia or downtown NYU.
LLMs at Columbia are also probably a little older (more focus on after-degree work experience).

More views welcome!

I have been rejected by Columbia.
If I have both two offers, I will choose Columbia as well.
The reputation is better and it's ivy league.

Can anyone give me some opinions about my choice?
now I have to choose between northwestern(15000 us dollars scholarship) and nyu(no scholarship right now).

Thank you!

Sorry about that but congrats on the rest. At what time did you receive the rejection email from Columbia? (You can indicate your time zone if you don't mind)?

I think you should wait to hear from NYU on the financial aid before making a decision. For me over Northwestern, NYU any day (this is looking at the status of the schools and possible networks). Others can add their input. Perhaps you can include your field of study and what you would like to do after your LLM.

Thanks

I agree, I visited both recently, Columbia feels more like a campus, NYU is full-on NY, so that depends on what you prefer.
An upside for NYU seems to be their work on placement after the LLM, that called my attention, but I would still stick with Columbia.

I received the rejection letter very early (around midDec) and I applied Columbia through early application process.

Yes, maybe I should wait for the scholarship from NYU(but I think the possibility is very limited.)
I prefer to study business law(not particular) or tax law.
I prefer the class size, the environment and the flexibility of Northwestern, (I am very interested in the courses with the business school.) so I almost decided to go to the Northwestern before I got an admission letter from NYU.
The only consideration of me is that NYU have better ranking and networks due to its location.

Hi, I've been admitted to NYU International tax LLM but also applied to Columbia. I think for tax LLMs, NYU has much better reputation, but overall Columbia Law School ranks higher than NYU. Do you think it is worth to go for Columbia (for a General LLM with a strong focus on tax) if I get a scholarship?

Columbia Ivy League!!


It's not necessarily always about the Ivy League brand; it's more to do with your needs, area of practice and of course where you fit in as an individual. I am a Human Rights lawyer and if I got into both Columbia and Harvard i.e. I would pick Columbia over the latter. CLS's location, the plethora of opportunities and its reputation when it comes IHR.

Of course in the end financial needs significantly influence our decisions.
