Does it matter if I get a Tax LLM from Florida or NYU?

Please take the context below into consideration before answering - I'm know NYU is the top tier school and I've always dreamed of attending.

Context: I'll have done two internships in STS at the same firm (not Big Four: RsM, BDO, Grant Thornton). There's the potential to start now at this firm as L2 (experienced associate) due to the internships. There's also a deferred offer from this firm but nothing has been signed or negotiated until I get a Tax LLM. I'd get at least senior and maybe experienced senior if I go with them after getting the Tax LLM. This would be in Atlanta/Miami/Dallas/Charlotte for salary context.

I am accepted to NYU, GT, and Florida, but have a full-ride offer from Florida. I have 150,000 in debt from my JD program but graduated in the top of my class.


In this context and with the goal of working in accounting (Big Four or the firm mentioned above) is the extra debt worth the NYU LLM or should I take the Florida offer? I'm also wondering if the NYU degree would get me a higher salary than a Florida or GT LLM.
NYU grad here. If you have debt and if you are absolutely sure you want accounting firm, you should take Florida. In my opinion, if you don’t want nyc biglaw, it really doesn’t matter where you get your tax llm. Even if you want nyc biglaw, if you were not “biglaw material” before the program, it is very likely you will end up at Big4 ( not saying that it is a bad result).

FL Tax alum here. I think you should go to FL considering your interest in Big 4, stats, and the merit aid. Let me know if you have additional questions.
