Where to go? NYU/Northwestern/(U.C. Berkeley)


LLM2be
Hi.

As the deadline for deposit is coming near, I have decisions to make and would like to seek advice from you guys.

I have been fortunate to receive admissions from NYU, NW, Cornell and G-town.

For now, I am leaning towards two schools, NYU and NW.
My previous career is based on corporate issues, so I have applied to NYU's corporation program.

I am currently in California, which makes Berkeley a good option too (If I get in of course), but then again, if it is NYU/NW/Berkeley. Where?

I wish to gain some professional experience while in U.S., but ultimately plan to go back to my home country to practice. Any advice is welcome. Please share your thoughts!

If you work with corporate, I'd pick NWU or NYU.

I get you on NYU, but Berkeley over NYU. That is new. Can you tell me why you would choose so? I have little background on how law schools are perceived in US legal market, except for the rankings. So any info will help a lot. Thanks!

Well, both NYU and Northwestern have a tradition for forging great corporate lawyers, while Berkeley prepares you for a broader range of career paths. In order to check which universities are more private sector-oriented, it is always worth taking a look at the biglaw employment ranking. As you'll see, both Northwestern and NYU are better ranked than Berkeley:

1) Columbia Law School
2) University of Pennsylvania Law School
3) University of Chicago Law School
4) Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law
5) Duke Law School
6) New York University School of Law
7) Cornell Law School
8) University of Virginia School of Law
9) Stanford Law School
10) University of California, Berkeley School of Law
