Urgent Georgetown LLM Question


Hi! I have a really urgent question to ask regarding Georgetown LLM and would appreciate any advice on the matter!

I have been accepted to both the LLM programs for UCLA as well as Georgetown, and have absolutely no idea which one to choose.

I understand that the Georgetown Tax LLM program is the far better option in terms of employment opportunities and mobility, but as someone with no prior tax experience, would it be a mistake jumping into the course and struggling?

Cost is not an issue and I have no set destination on where I want to work/live. Just thinking of getting the best opportunity for work.

No. You will be fine. I took all the JD tax classes. It’s a good idea to have at least income tax, but the US Master tax guide and a decent brain will get you through any graduate tax program classes. You’ll have to work harder but you can do it.

Definitely go to Georgetown. I did undergrad and law school in LA and LM outside of LA. LA is my hometown. I grew up there. I loved it. It is not the same place anymore. Traffic is truly horrendous. With that said, if you have your heart set on living and working in California then of course choose UCLA. For the East Coast, then Georgetown.

Either way you’ve done very well to be admitted to such great programs. Good luck to you.
