Berkely v. Chicago

Berkely v. Chicago
« on: February 14, 2006, 12:49:27 PM »
Any thoughts on which would be a better pick?
Interested in jurisprudence, comparative, and international law; private sector initially, but maybe academia or gov't later.
Straight out of college; pretty outdoorsy.

Both berekly and chicago seem great, with the later maybe being a touch more academic,
but boalt seems like it has an amazing quality of life.

Any thoughts?

Chicago is probably the *last* T14 school to go to for international law.  They don't have any international exchange, study abroad, or dual-degree programs at all.

Generally, the international "powerhouses" are Harvard, Columbia, Yale, NYU, and Georgetown.

That said, if you're not going into academia in that specific area (and only wish to work internationally), Columbia, Harvard, and NYU have the most grads of any other schools working overseas.  Otherwise just go to the best school to which you are admitted.
