If I were you, I would consider which law school will be providing specific courses which might make you an expert in those areas.

NYU is recommended!

If your area of expertise is law and econs or law of antitrust, Chicago is the best choice!

I agree. My focus area is Corp Law and given that my other choice is Berkeley (which I chose over Cornell), I am thoroughly confused between UPenn and NYU (if they had to work out). Penn Law has all the merits of being a better choice for Corp Law - it is an Ivy League, smaller class size, access to Wharton, excellent faculty for Corp Law, close enough to NYC. However, shockingly enough, based on whatever I have read so far, it does not seem to enjoy the kind of international reputation accorded to Berkeley Law and NYU, for LLM. Then again, NYU should also have a decent Corp Law program being in NYC and have good faculty too. But I am unsure of what reasons it would be better than UPenn. Berkeley enjoys a better reputation, has a beautiful campus and better weather but NYU would score an extra point due to its location, surely. All things considered, I would perhaps choose NYU over the remainder. For NYC.

Me too. I'm kind of stressed out.
Will it be a rejection like UChicago that no seat is left for the waitinglisted, or a good sign we are going to have admission letter tody, is still a huge uncertainty.
