5.0 of 5 stars
The adjunct professors (majority of LLM faculty) are subject matter experts in the areas they're instructing. DC is the epicenter for federal tax, and it's no surprise you will get access to the best and brightest minds.
Most courses are at night, presumably to accommodate the adjunct faculty.
I have friends that attended NYU, and based on what I've heard from them, I would choose Georgetown again.

Unbelievable access to DC's practical learning resources. Clinical programs that provide up front experience to develop students before they begin practicing. Elite law school with multiple specialty areas.
Too many students. Because of the need for student volume, compromising on admissions including lower LSAT scores since 2010.
If you want to have a wide range of clinical and practical learning opportunities, there is no better school. Around 40% get large law firm jobs and 25% get prestigious public sector jobs.

several kinds of subjects available for students who are interested in learn US laws and legal practices.
Location: why do we need to study next to Union Station in DC.
GTU Law is a huge size law school. If you want to study in a small group, you should choose another place. If you want to study in a big class room with many students with several backgrounds, this is for you.

Location (Washington DC), proximity to courts, internship opportunities and quality of professors
class size, technology needs improvement, student housing, food offered in cafeteria needs improvement
As one of T14 law schools, GULC is a good choice for students who want to pursue a career in law.
2.0 of 5 stars
It is in DC so it is cool like that.
The professors can be awful. They care more about their status than their students.
To all prospective law students, think twice. G U L C is far from a guarantee of a six figure job upon graduation.
Professors are very engaged, talented and eager to assist students.
Career Services Department is a bit lack luster. The GULC network is large and it does not seem that career services is on top of tapping into it.
It is highly recommended that you join a clinic, as they are phenomenal at GULC and will introduce you to great professionals.
Great professors who are passionate about teaching and leaders in their fields.
Class sizes are large making it difficult to meet everyone.
Georgetown is in the heart of DC so taking advantage of the externship or clinic programs is a must.
Wide variety of class offeringsStudents are not competitive with each otherCafeteria is solid
Huge class sizesNot much connection with professorsTerrible area in DC
Be careful if your heart is set on DC biglaw. It is still very difficult to get even out of GULC. NYC (and sometimes secondaries) is significantly easier.
I like the gym and Hotung library. I like the quality of the Professors. I appreciate the services that the school provides and the student involvement on campus.
I don't like McDonough and the Williams library needs remodeling.
I would say that it's a competitive environment, but I'm not sure that's something you can escape in law school. I would say it provides a lot of opportunities, if you do well.
Phenomenal professors. Great experiential learning opportunities in clinics, practicums, and externships found through the school. Classmates were supportive and collegial. Good alumni engagement and support.
Very large class size meant that sometimes you feel lost in the crowd.
Georgetown offers a great opportunity to learn about the law in a city where laws are made, challenged, and enforced on a daily basis.
