I am in at UCLA's public interest program and wondering hard about how it compares to UVA, NYU, Georgetown, or Penn. I know I want to do public interest, and I'm pretty sure I want to do it in the Bay Area, or at least California. I love the Pacific, and sunlight generally. I think I'll have to find out what public interest area specifically in school.
So, how does UCLA's program stack up to a degree from those other schools when it comes time to interview? Will it be easier to get a job in California with a UCLA public interest degree?
In: UCLA, USC, UVA, GW (nah!), UCDavis (if their LRAP were better...)
Wait: Cornell, Michigan
Pending: Harvard, NYU, Penn, Georgetown (they've decided; it's in the mail!)
