Penn v. Duke. v. BU


JulArg

I've received acceptance letters from 6 schools and declined offers until de point I just have Penn, Duke and BU as options.

Now I find myself stuck trying to decide which is my best option. Penn and Duke regarding their academics and prestige, and BU due its academics and lower cost (they offered me a partial scholarship).

Im focusing my career into financing and business law, and I would like to have the experience of working in US after the LL.M. All which are making the decision even harder.

Any suggestion?

Ditto. Of course it comes down to whether you can afford the LLM on your own. If not, then go to BU of course. If money is not your biggest issue then between Penn and Duke I would definitely go for Penn.

If it helps, I was in the same position as you, accepted in Vanderbilt, which has professor Randall Thomas director of the LLM Program and an authority when it comes to Corporate and Business Law. They offered me a partial scholarship.

Wether you intend to head back to Argentina or practice in the US, UPenn has solid courses in Corporate and Business Law, plus the Wharton Certificate that may only add to your experience.

If you can afford it, or you find the means to do it, I wouldn't hesitate and choose UPenn...Plus we will have an awesome wine taste event Mid August :D

There is no comparison whatsoever between UPenn and Penn State in terms of academic leverage. If you have an offer from both then UPenn would definitely need to be your choice.

UVA is a very good school however I personally would not pick it over UPenn for multiple reasons (prestige, ivy league, i prefer cities over small towns, philly is better located etc)
