Gtown vs GWU vs Cardozo$$$ for (possible) IP Law

Postby tigrelis » Wed Mar 31, 2010 4:04 pm

I'm interested in IP law, but not definite on this. I want to keep my options and my mind open.

No money at Gtown or GW.
3/4 tuition at Cardozo.

I want to go to Gtown, but would it be a bad decision if, say, I do end up in IP law, to have passed up the #3 and #8 programs in the country? Or will Gtown simply open up more options whether or not I choose to pursue IP?

Thank you!

The specific program rankings are even more of a joke than the overall US News rankings. I can't see any possible reason to choose anything but Georgetown.

Georgetown unless your upfront investment is really important to you. But even then.

Do you want NYC? Then Cardozo with $$$ isn't that bad an option.

The "ranking" of the IP program doesn't matter - I guarantee you Georgetown gives you a better chance of practicing IP law than Cardozo (or of doing almost anything else you want for that matter).

Great! I was pretty sure I was going with Georgetown anyhow, but wanted to cover all my bases. Now I feel really good about this decision. Thanks all!
