I read your article on LL.M. degrees and was wondering if you thought my case would be a worthy exception. I have just been accepted into the Securities & Financial Regulation LL.M. at Georgetown. I am just looking for a slight bump from the LL.M. to enable me to get a job in a big firm or with the federal government.

Goals/reasons why I think the LL.M. might be worth it over the job offer:

1. Georgetown would slightly class up the resume. Top 10% at T40-50 is very different from someone at an unaccredited school thinking it will save the resume.

That's true-but the concept talked about in the article is the same. You are going from a regional law school to a national one. If you want to do securities, why not try to go to a law firm that does this work now?
