NYU / Yale


opsa

I have been accepted in Yale and in the NYU (they have offered me a Hugo Grotius scholarship). I am interested in public law (International, Comparative and European law). I know that the NYU is the leader in International law, but it is still really hard to make a choice. I have to give a definitive answer to the NYU in two days time...
any suggestions?

I know how you feel. I have also been accepted in Columbia and Chicago. Yale would be my first choice. But the Grotius Scholarship is also interesting and they also offered a research assistant position ... and two days left to choose...

Although Yale is the best law school of the world, I think that is better to be Penn's human right scholar and assistant professor, not only because you will not have to pay. but because I think that is more prestigeous than became a simple Yale alumni.

In sum, I will choose Penn, at least Yale offers you something similar.

Why two days? I received the same offer (full tuition scholarship and research assistant position) and there is no deadline in my letter, only the deadline to accept the place, which is April 15th. Tks!

they sent me an e-mail, and told me that to accept the scholarship I should make the 500$ deposit before the 6th March...have you contact them to accept the scholarship and the position??

If it were me, then I'd say Yale without a shadow of a doubt though I can imagine if or when Harvard comes into the picture, it gets a lot more complex (then, I suppose a lot of it depends on whether you see yourself in academia in which case I'd choose Yale, or elsewhere, in which case my personal opinion would be to go for HLS, not considering the additional complicating factor that financial aid would serve for both HLS and YLS).

I'd go for Yale. The financial grant is not really an issue, since in the past almost all Yale LLMs (or at least most Yale LLMs) are given full tuition waivers. I'm not really sure how this year will pan out considering the recession the US is currently facing.

Go for Yale, especially if you want to get into academia.

Yale is at the top of the Ivy League and will do much more for your career in the long run.
