I am an international applicant and I am considering many top US law schools currently. I had Georgetown as my top choice originally, but was informed in another thread that "job prospects" at Georgetown are not very good compared to schools like NYU and Columbia. I am now having to rethink my list of schools. I was just wondering if those of you that chose to go to Georgetown faced a similar dilemma and, if so, what helped you overcome it and choose Georgetown. I am really interested in hearing about things related to "job prospects" specifically, but any help would be great.
I got rejected from NYU and WL at Columbia, but they were really my top choices because I'm from NY. When I got accepted to Georgetown, I wasn't thinking that I'd attend. However, as I read more about the school, and visited, it completely made me sure in my mind that it was the place for me. As far as job prospects, what exactly are you looking to do? Georgetown is no slouch, though if you want NY big law then Columbia and NYU would certainly be better. I am interested in International Law, more specifically Comparative law and a possible government job, so Georgetown is probably the best place for me, especially considering their loan repayment program.
