Dear KIKI,

in your view, is NYU really that bad? Honestly, i never ever heard anything bad about NYU Law. Everyone I know tells that NYU is great.. I was so sad when I read your post mentioning that you don't go to NYU except for the tax law.. im in for the corporation law.. is that true what you are talking about? i mean, NYU has been my dream since i graduated... well i've heard that harvard is good cause it is harvard, and other schools too.. but that doesn't mean NYu is bad, right? is it just me or what?

thankyou for listening, i hope you write back soon..

Hi. I'm not Kiki but I feel I can comment. I'm also a corporations lawyer (with other interests in finance and legal theory).

When I started the applications process around a year ago, I thought NYU would be a low choice for me. However, my research showed just the opposite. For one thing, NYU has poached Roberta Romano from Yale so for that just to the right of centre approach to corporate finance you can hardly do better.

But you only need to look at the stellar faculty right across the board to see that the NYU Corporations staff are outstanding. I'd still lean towards Columbia (you can't beat Coffey, right?) but NYU would be a great place to do corporations, jurisprudence, international law or tax law, amongst other specialisations.

Dear Jasmin,

first of all, I don't think that NYU is a bad school at all - sorry if my lines have caused you any worries. NYU does have great faculty and is situated in one of the most interesting cities on Earth. However, people probably have different ideas about what they want out of an LL.M. program, and to me personally the following aspects are important: How many LL.M.s are admitted per year? How is the J.D./LL.M. ratio? Do they have classes with J.D.s, or are there classes only for LL.M.s (like at NYU)? In my view, when studying in the US, it makes sense to study together with Americans in classes meant for Americans, not in courses set up exclusively for international cash-cows. From my experience, NYU has a reputation for admitting hundreds of LL.M.s to generate funds. That does not mean that the school is bad or that you get no value for your money. It's just a question of what you want out of an LL.M.
If it's your dream to go to NYU, then you should go there, but you should know what to expect.

Best, Kiki
