UChicago LL.M. Class of 2010


hindahin
Hi Natassja,

I accepted the offer yesterday and withdrew from Michigan, NYU and Vanderbilt. Already looking forward to seeing you this fall! About housing, I read the Email from Dean Badger but thought that sharing a flat with american students could also be interesting (less expensive / beneficial for learning the language / more contact not only with the other LLM students etc.).

I just sent an email to decline Columbias offer at the last minute before the deadline of March 25 and will most likely decline offers from NYU, Penn and Northwestern in the following few weeks and accept Chicagos offer.

I accepted Chicagos offer on early February (I had been admitted early by CLS, Penn and Northwestern), in part because of the possibility of taking classes at the Booth Graduate School of Business (ranked #1 MBA program by The Economist and Business Week) with Nobel laureate professors without paying more, but mainly because of its great faculty in Business Law (D. Baird, L. Bernstein, E. Posner etc.) and its collegiate environment.

There is also a course called Mini MBA at the law school that seems great, and there are new courses about Bailouts, which seems to be very useful nowadays in Europe.

I also accepted Chicago's offer last week. This week I'm investigating housing options.... I'm traveling with my husband so residence hall doesn't seem so attractive, but am also trying to find a comfy not so expensive option. have u seen the regents park website? and are any of u planning to attend the SELI Language Program? my husband and I have already bought tickets to go to the us open.... we are tennis fans big time and plan to take advantage of our time there :)

I just read in the newspaper (but the source is this: http://www.askmen.com/specials/2009_top_29/chicago.html) that Chicago was elected the best city to live in 2009.

Hope to see you guys in September!

O really? That's something inspiring. Still struggling between NYU and Uchicago, but I think I will choose Uchicago eventually.

Chicago...six months' cold weather...

If I were in your shoes, I would probably choose NYU over Chicago simply because the former enjoys advantages in job hunting - go where jobs are assuming the economy touches bottom in 2010. In previous years, graduates of NYU had larger percentage of callbacks/interviews/offers than those of Chicago.

Personally, I believe that NYU is not a competitor for Chicago. The real competitor of Chicago is Columbia. Ask any American lawyer or professor and they will say that Chicago is one level above.

Chicago and Columbia are in all rankings (not only law rankings but also college rankings for example) very similar, why, besides in law, NYU is lower ranked (for example NYUs undergraduate school is not ranked among the best 30, while Chicago and Columbia are top 10)

Last, the LLM class at NYU is 450 students, while in Chicago only 50.

But well, there are other threads to discus the advantage of o n university over the other. This is for admitted students, and I wish asymmetrical that you join us!

Following some very lengthy and agonizing deliberations, I have decided to decline the offer from UChicago and accept an offer from Columbia. However, I am convinced that you will all have a great time there next year! Good luck! :)

Thanks Wolla. I chose exactly the opposite (Chicago over Columbia), but I agree with you that was an agonizing deliberation, however, the small size of the LLM and Chicagos faculty was more compelling for me. Good luck to you too!

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say congratulations on choosing Chicago! I got LL.M. ('05) and J.S.D. degrees from UofC, and am working as an attorney now in Chicago. Thus, I know the city (and the UofC program) very well. If I can be of any help, for planning purposes or otherwise, please feel free to contact me.

Congrats again!
