I see so many valuable opinions here! Well I guess the issue here is whether Cornell has some sort of "name value" in my home country and Im gonna have to say yes, though not a definite yes. I am not so sure if its true for the professional field here but the people in general have never even heard of NU(except for the ones whove studied in the US). But again, like one of the posters on this thread mentioned, the ones who are gonna be hiring me are not the general public. So...yea..
I'd pick NU over Cornell if I were in your shoes. NU is on an upward trend whereas Cornell has been standing still for decades. Also I heard that international JDs at Cornell were having a really difficult time finding a job even though their overall employment data looks good. In term of costs, you're an international student so, technically, the COA difference doesn't matter that much to you anyway, otherwise you wouldn't be applying for U.S. law schools. I am an international student as well and is deciding between NU and Mich, mind sharing what your NU alumni contacts have told you abt the school? You can pm me if you want
Honestly they didnt really give me concrete information about NU. They were all international students,said they dont regret choosing NU over Cornell, and mentioned about how Cornell's location could make me stressed out(well they are NU students so i figured they would almost def say they like NU), so for that reason theyd choose NU over Cornell if they were me. One of them also mentioned that there are many classmates who chose NU over Cornell. Also, she said most international students would have to go to NYC for BL but that NU is a great choice since NU provides high quality business classes(?) and surrounded by malls and restaurants where I could relieve stress.
I wish I had a clearer reason for choosing either school but I dont. This is such a pain in my butt. Where did you hear about Cornell's international students employment outcomes?
