UVA vs. Georgetown


mitchllm

Hi Guys!
It's nearly time to make a choice...But I'm still lost.

Which University would you choose between UVA and GTown?

It's really hard because UVA has a good ranking, the LL.M classes are small so the Univserity can focus on each LL.M Students, while Georgetown is a great law school in a great city and has a good ranking in international Law and a certificate in arbitration but the classes are full (about LL.M 300 students each year...)
I'm lost !

Thanx for your help !!!!

I suppose that it would depend on the ranking and reputation of the school in terms of the specific course you'll be taking. The general ranking is a guide but the specific circumstances should be the deciding factors.

In my opinion, Georgetown has a stronger international reputation than UVA, which is better known in the USA. I feel that this is true for Europe, but maybe it is different elsewhere?

Also, there aren't 300 students in the Georgetown LLM, I think it is more like 240 which I think makes a bit of a difference. I can't speak for Virginia, but I know alums from Georgetown and they had only good things to say.

Ultimately, you need to take into account all factors!
