hi, ranking wise, they are quite close. I personally think it makes more sense to make your decision after taking into account of the living environment and specific focus of your study. Seems BU is more competitive on banking and tax law, if those fit into your situation.  Also, cost of attendance is slight cheaper in Boston, as compared with LA. Would it be possible to share the amount of scholarship? thanks.

First of all, congratulations on your admit. I am admitted into the LLM program at both BU and USC and I have decided to attend BU Law. The reason BU Law superseded USC is because they are very similar when it comes to ranking. After speaking to a few alumni at BU, I came to know that the American Law Program at BU is a very flexible one which allows you to tailor your course so I can pick and choose subjects of my choice. Besides, Boston is a very close knit community which will be very helpful when you start looking for a job. That being said, I think you should weigh the pros and cons and decided based on which university aligns well with your interests and future plans. Seeking job in the US with an LLM degree of definitely a daunting task irrespective of the university so I'd suggest do your due-dilligence and pick what suits you best. Best of luck!

Hi, there, 
Congratulations on your admissions. Both USC and BU are well enough to pursue your LLM. Before you make decisions, you can also consider where do you want to live and work after your graduation. In my case, I have definitely chosen USC because I love living in LA. If you’re planning to live and work in CA, it would be best to attend USC. You’ll have more opportunities to network locally during the LLM, and USC has a very active network. Also, USC’s reputation is very strong in Los Angeles and California. Hope this helps!
