Where should I go next fall? / Penn v. Columbia International Law
« on: April 07, 2008, 11:38:53 AM »
Interested in International work both human rights and business, specifically the Middle East if that makes a difference.  I don't mind Philly, especially with COL so low.  Does anyone have any thoughts? I've heard that both have great programs/course work in the area, but was wondering if anyone could fill in any highlights or details of each that might be helpful with my decision.

Interested in either International Law (Maj in Middle Eastern Studies in UG) or getting involved with professional sports- front office, gen. counsel type work (played basketball in UG)

Where is not so much a problem- pretty open and I figure after putting in 3-6 years in a big market that if I dont like it, information, work, and client base will be almost seemlessly portable at that point anyway...

Thanks, ya I do like Chicago a bit better than Philly, also have a few pretty good friends my age in Chi, although some in jersey Philly area as well from doing UG in Jerz.

Currently on the hold list at U of C, I applied late so this seems to be a theme right now...Do you think that admit at Penn could be leveraged into money at NW?

I have a sense that Penn is a little more highly regarded, but with a little preference towards chicago as a city does anyone have any thoughts about the pros and cons of each? Ramifications job wise, quality of life, etc. I also hear that the student pop at N'Western is generally older, not necessarily a plus in my eyes as I'm only 1 yr out of undergrad...

Do these add up enough to sway decision to Penn or stick with N'Western? Also does admit to Penn provide any leverage for getting $ from them?

Acceptances / Re: ASU + Scholarship vs. T14

No decision yet scheduling a meeting with dean hopefully this week to check out the law school and discuss $$ package...also got into Penn Friday which complicates things even further in trying to decide between N'Western and Chicago or Penn and Philly...

Acceptances / ASU + Scholarship vs. T14

I Feel as though this might be a common conflict with many, what would anyone's advice be in deciding between a decent state school (Arizona State) + full tuition scholarship vs. T14 such as Northwestern, Penn, Chicago...

Other Factors:
Not dedicated on staying in Az, but not opposed to it.
Two main interests post- J.D. are with international law and/or sports law (management/general counsel side)
