Decided that Columbia's offerings in intl law and labor are more or less equivalent to NYU's, and like NYU, my scholarship comes with a mentorship component. Also better scholarship, more renown
Just received my Harvard aid "award": no grants, all loans. I still want to go to HLS, but I also don't think it's worth $120,000 more than a CLS degree.
Unsure. Have some vague interests in arbitration between countries and human rights, but I am well aware that could (and probably will) change. What probably won't change is that at the end of the day, I want to return to Canada or possibly Europe.I think for what I am interested in doing at the moment, Columbia is as good if not better than Harvard. But I think my unwillingness to stay in the US over a long period is where Harvard really shines over Columbia. If I wanted to do corporate law in New York, I would be at Columbia already. I am not interested in doing that type of work at the moment, however, and due to personal commitments I don't see myself living in the States for a long period of time after law school.
