UC Davis v. McGeorge


fl0
Hey!
I would love to hear any opinion about this..

So I applied to both universities (US law for foreigners program), and I got admitted in McGeorge about a month ago. I was pretty happy because I didn't know if my grades and SOP were good enough. (My grades are not amazing, just average). I applied to Davis as a long shot, and I knew there was no way I was going to be accepted, but surprisingly I just got the acceptance email!

Now I dont know what to do; I know Davis is better in every way (bar passing rates, job prospection..) but I'm afraid of not being able to complete the program and screw everything..

My question is .. how much harder is Davis compared to McGeorge?

any kind of info is appreciated :)

I am a JD from UC Davis, and I can tell you that Davis is not that much harder than McGeorge. Rarely did I find LLMs that dropped out or were somehow behind. Davis is a very supportive environment, while McGeorge tends to be more competitive as students know that their job prospects are rather limited.

As an example, LLMs got an hour extra to take each of the finals at Davis compared to the JDs. I am not sure if McGeorge has the same policy.

I got the 2012 LLM admission from UC DAVIS too. My goal is to obtain JD degree in the states. Do you know the situation and process about LLM transfer to JD in UC Davis? Thank you.

Probably, ha, but I also received admission from IUB and Tulane. I am still considering. However, I prefer UC Davis.

I actually have no idea whether UC Davis allows LLMs to transfer into the JD program, - I cannot imagine why they would not. I have not seen that happen among Davis LLM students, but I could be wrong.

As a current LLM student at McGeorge, I don't find the environment at all competitive. In fact, everyone is friendly and supportive--JDs and LLMs. McGeorge students take their academics seriously but that just makes for lively and engaging discussion. McGeorge has great internship and practical skills-based programs as well as alumni connections and events. McGeorge students have a lot of opportunities to impress potential employers. I didn't do my JD here but I've enjoyed my LLM program.

I can tell that McGeorge also have this policy - or, if I remember it correctly, we got 50 % extra time. IF your native language is not English.
