I have been accepted to Northwestern, UVA, and GWU. This post isn't really to ask which school to go to but, more so to ask what people know about placements of graduates in the field of human rights and international politics. I was admitted to the dual-degree program at NU where I would complete a JD and an LLM in International Human Rights. So far, NU seems like the way to go, but the money at GWU (30K/year & housing for first year) is attractive even though they have arguably the worst study abroad opportunities among any top school, something that I am very interested in doing. What do any of you know about these schools and the opportunities they provide to individuals who want to work in international human rights? Would the opportunities be fewer at GWU than NU and UVA?? Or does that only apply to people wanting to do Biglaw? Thanks in advance for any insight you might have!
