I've just begun looking into all of these programs, so I'm in no way qualified as an authority on this. But I've been thinking about it a lot. GMU might be attractive to a Virginia resident, because it costs quite a bit less. It seems like the academic opportunities are excellent at GULC, GW, and GMU. But the big difference is employability. If you're looking to work at a big law firm, I can't imagine GW or GMU being a better choice than Georgetown, full-time or part-time. If you get good grades in the Georgetown PT program, there's not a big difference in employment opportunities than if you were in the full-time program. That's at least what a part-time student told me, so maybe he's biased. Granted, the PT program will always be on your transcript, even if you transfer to FT, and that might give you a small prestige ding. But still, the Georgetown name on your transcript is a huge benefit.
