NYU vs Cornell vs UVa (LLM pro)

Postby kozik » Tue Mar 15, 2011 9:51 am

Hello all, please help me to make decision.
I have been admitted to 2011/2012 LLM to all these schools, none of them offered a sholarship or any kind of fellowships though.
That's a rather sersious investment for me so I must approach this decision very carefully.
Another important factor is that I am a package deal that comes with two kids of 7 and 10, so I am reviewing not only the school but all supplied child care facilities nearby the area of interest.
New Yourk U is commonly rated above Cornell and UVa but life is cheaper in Ithaka and in Charlottesville
I need your advice, guys, what whoud you say, given the situation?
And one more question what do you think - is it possible to study with two kids or this is no way and absolutely stupid idea?

kind regards in advance

If you want to work in NYC, I would say NYU is the best way to do so. I would imagine their LLM program is filled with already-successful NYC attorneys, which sounds like a priceless opportunity. Though, as you said you have children, if you are looking to live in a suburb-type setting, Cornell may be a better choice.

However, everyone's different and I don't really know too much about your circumstances...NYU would simply be my decision.

Is the LLM in tax? If yes, go to NYU.
Is the LLM in something else? If yes, do not get the LLM.

They might be from overseas, in which case it's a whole different ballgame.

What does the "pro" mean ?

If you getting an LLM in Comparative Law to practice in the US, then Virginia may be the most family friendly, followed by Cornell.

If seeking an LLM in taxation, then you already know the answer--NYU.
