Seriously. I got home and saw a big package and was like wow someone loves me and guess what, it was Brooklyn Law School. I'm keeping that cool folder thingamajig.
1) NYU + Furman scholarship.
If it isn't obvious I have some interest in academia and these appear to be the two best shots at getting a position. Also, I intend to focus on international and comparative law and NYU is number 1 in that area hence my desire to go there first.
Harvard and Chicago are both clearly better for entering academia than NYU.
Yawn. Don't you prestigious people ever tire of debating the insignificant differences between top 5 schools?
I don't think it's an insignificant difference for academia. I also don't think this point is at all contested, so I suspect "dmreust" is new to the process and misinformed.
Sure if you're looking at it by volume or whatever, but I don't think the difference between them is as important as the caliber of student, their note, interests, prior academic background and area of interest, etc.
But I'm not an expert on that. And I don't like following the xoxo/lsd credited answers for school choices just to follow them or because of statistics or something rational.
