University of Southern California or Northeastern University


Hello!
I really need help right now. I don't know if I should go to University of Southern California that is located in a wonderful area and has wonderful credentials, but is nine thousand dollars more expensive than Northeastern University, that is also a very good school, but is located in Boston.

What should I do?
Thanks

There is really no comparison between these two schools. The only reason to pick Northeastern would be if you really want to live in Boston.

I hope you have done an extensive research before posting this question. NE is ranked 76 and USC is 18. Thus, there is no comparison between the 2 and moreover your question is an insult to the intellect of those who have secured admission in USC. Ridiculous!!!

If your going for an LL.M. i assume law is your career choice, you ought to have done some basic research. Its about being practical.

thank you very much for your help! I really appreciate your opinion. I think i am really going to choose USC. I checked some ranks, but none of them were something coming from the Bar Association or an official source.
I wish you the best

Thank you again my friend. I guess the best way to deal with this kind is to ignore.

USC is definitely raked better. Both the cities are fun, but I like California better.

Do a realistic assessment if ranking would matter in your case. Mine and my friends experience has been that other than top four schools, it does not really matter in terms of at least job search in US.

$9K is a lot of money, but if you can still manage, my vote would be in favor of USC.

Brazilianlawyer, As terkiana has rightly stated above, the US news has the most popular and also valued ranking among student prospects and hiring firms.
If you decide to come to USC, we would meet there, I am enrolling for fall 2012 too.
