NYU v NYU in Singapore


knowsam

Does anyone have any sense of whether the NYU LLM in Singapore is of the same quality or prestige as the NYU LLM taken in NYC? I know, its a very ethnocentric question but at $50K, I get to be ethnocentric and don't have to play pc. I'm not planning to practice in NYC, but I do intend to stay in North America post-LLM, and my practice currently is very Asia oriented. It they are close or the same, can't think of a better way to get an LLM than travelling between Singapore/Shanghai/US, how awesome!
Thx in advance.

No, they're not the same.
Mostly, you only get NYU profs in crash intensive courses in Singapore, while the rest of the credits are taught by NUS professors.

If you want to be taught by NYU profs, its better to apply to the main program instead

Thanks Interalia,
I don't have a preference whether I'm taught by NYU or NUS profs particularly. The Singapore/Shanghai experience seems to me to have an intrinsic value, both professionally and personally, and I'm ok with being taught by a mix of NYU and NUS profs. What I would be concerned with is the LLMs being viewing in the client/law and employer communities as a lesser degree. Any sense whether that is the case?
Thanks

I did it and for my experience I would say that the NYU@NUS LLm has a much beeter impact on future employers than the simple NYU LLm.

A LL_hopeful: I applied last year and did not get into NYU@NUS and have not heard back yet either.

The process is looking eerily similar. Please keep me updated of your status

If money isn't an issue, obviously go for NYU. NYU@NUS is basically the NUS LLM with some intensive courses taught by NYU Profs. Further, on a prestige level, NYU is clearer the superior of the two.
