Where to go for Tax LLM (Not NYU, UF, GT)

Where to go for Tax LLM (Not NYU, UF, GT)
« on: February 17, 2009, 12:25:28 PM »
I plan to pursue a LLM in tax next year. I have not been accepted into any of the top three but have been accepted to Miami, USD and Temple. I am still waiting to hear back from Nova and BU. I am interested in practicing in the northeast in particular Philadelphia. Does it make sense to go the best program (which appears to be Miami)? Or does it make more sense to go to local program like Nova or Temple and save about 20,000?

If you are really set on Philly (be certain) and have PA residency, Temple is the answer whether we're talking about JD or LLM.  If we're really just talking about Philly, I don't think you could even justify GULC Tax over Temple.

I agree with this, your going to be local where you want to work, you can make connctions get interships etc., seems like a no brainer, go to school hwere you want to work.

Miami is really the best tax llm program?? huh.. surprising! I know Villanova has a great program, and the tax professors here are great! I took into to tax here and did well. My professor was hilarious!

Temple would be a great bet b/c i'm sure it is the cheapest out of all of them... Not sure if they have a cheaper price if your instate.. I know the llm in trial advocacy has a set price whether instate or out of state.

If you want to stay and Philly (and who wouldn't?....Oh except for all the eagles players that just left us this week!) haha go to Temple or Nova...
