I'm hoping to be in that position; it's going to be a tough choice. Anyone want to discuss?
My impression is that, barring a large GULC scholly, everyone in here would pick NU.
Yup. This is definitely true of me.
I guess that was kind of vague. I agree that everyone in here would most likely choose NU barring no large GULC scholarship. I just want to hear some reasons....biglaw placement? smaller class size? more mature/experienced student body? practical/mba-esque approach to law?
I plan to focus in IP, so that draws me a bit to DC. However, from what I gather, working in DC after an NU JD should not be too difficult.
I made quite a few contacts with random IP attorneys at prestigious firms around the country before I quit my current job and decided to pursue law school, so I plan on getting some of their advice once I'm officially choosing between GULC and NU. I will report my findings afterwards.
I bet this has been discussed already, but I assume part of NU's great job placement is a factor of a student body with real work experience. Would a biglaw firm dig deeper into a GULC class for someone with work experience?
While NU has the smaller class size, GULC has the larger alumni network. Do those advantages balance out?
Just looking to start some preliminary discussions that I'm sure will benefit a lot of people. We have a lot of waiting to do anyway....
