Has anyone heard anything since the first round of offers?

My application was not complete or considered until after these were sent out so I am probably too late, but wondered if anyone had heard anything anyway... I met with the professor in charge of the course when I was out in Singapore last year and he told me I had a good chance of gettting a place and a scholarship so I am completely gutted that I probably won't now...

does nyu send a rejection mail or is it that all those who havent received ne reply have to understand by implication that they have been unsuccessful. I think this is the only school which does not have a app tracker.

I believe that is the attitude of NYU@NUS which is not nice at all. They even do not bother to reply to applications. Sending a mass rejection mail should not be so difficult.

Hello everyone! In response to my email enquiring status, the NYU Graduate Admissions Officer said that decisions in case of NYU@NUS are made on rolling basis starting January and the process might go on until mid-March. So for those who applied towards the deadline, the wait will be longer. I was a bit surprised to know that decisions are still being made on rolling basis. The website does not indicate this anymore.

From reading the earlier posts, one can see that an admit has been sent to an applicant who claims to have submitted his application on the last day of the deadline. If this is true, deducing that the earlier applications are made offers first and the subsequent ones thereafter wouldn't be logically sound. From my understanding, the parameters for selecting the group of candidates has a multi-functional approach (e.g. diversity in nationality). The first round of offers are made to the candidates most desired by the university, and subsequent offers made on the basis of the acceptance/decline of the admit offer by those candidates.
This course was introduced only recently and hence the number of candidates applying in the earlier years were few and given answers quick. The popularity of this course has surged with the addition of permitting students to sit the New York Bar exam and obtain two LL.M degrees. This obviously means more and more applications, and now the university can exercise its choice of students, rather than accept almost every offer likeit might have done in the past. Hence I believe that admit letters will be given on an enrolling basis and not on a rolling basis.
However, this is my view on the process, please do not accept it as absolute.
Awaiting the second round of offers myself. Wishing everyone still eagerly waiting the offers the best of luck.


P.S. Does anyone have any idea how many admit letters were sent out in the first round and how many from them have accepted? Thanks!!

Cheers.

Kunal:

I really hope it is that way. I myself thought it to be that way until I received a response from the officer. Let me just quote a couple of lines from the officer's email and from the automated response I got earlier today:

From the officer's email:

"As indicated in our application materials and on our website, LL.M. applicants who meet the December 1st deadline will be notified of the Committee on Graduate Admissions decision on in early to mid-March. The decisions for the NYU@NUS program will be communicated on a rolling basis beginning in January."

From the automated response which contains FAQ:

"How long from the time my application is complete may I expect to receive a decision by mail?
Applications are not reviewed until all required information and the application fee has been received.

NYU@NUS begins in May. Therefore, decisions regarding NYU@NUS will be communicated to applicants as they are made. The Committee on Graduate Admissions will begin reviewing applications at the end of September and will send decisions on a rolling basis through January to all applicants who complete their applications by the December 1 deadline. Qualified applicants have a better chance of admission and scholarship the sooner they apply and complete their applications. Those applications to NYU@NUS not completed by the deadline will receive decisions as soon as possible following completion of their file provided that room remains in the program."

My guess is 5 people on this board were offered. One of my friends who is not on this board was offered admission plus Dean's scholarship of 20K a few days after the first round, but he had to reject it. He was given time until Feb 1.

All the best to all those who are still waiting. May we all hear soon!

Cheers

It might be helpful to know how many people are on the 2011/2012 NYU@NUS Facebook Group, that way we could guess how many offers were still left to be made.

Hey guys!
After a dreadful time of waiting I was finally offered admission to NYU@NUS yesterday - and as things stand I will accept. For all those who have not heard back yet: I think they are still working on applications and there is still a chance to get in. Good luck! xXx

Hi, I am a law graduate from India and am really keen on doing my LLM in corporate law. However last year I could only apply to NUS, Singapore due to some issues.
I got the offer letter from NUS yesterday for admission into its Corporate & Financial Services Law for the 2011-2012 sem. Now I am in a dilemma. Should I or should I not accept this offer. Since I haven't yet applied to any other institutes like LSE, Kings etc I am wondering if it would n't be a better idea to apply to these institutions this year and then decide accordingly.
However NUS I guess is a good university yet I really dont know much about it. Pleaseeeeeeeeeee help me make up my mind! Can anybody please tell me if it is a good idea to accept the NUS offer or wait till next year??

are you kidding? REALLY, are you?
NYU@NUS is an amazing program!
bear in mind that NYU is one of the best Law Schools of the world, much better than LSE. in the NYU@NUS program, you will have the opportunity to study both in the prestigious National University of Singapure and in the NYU Law School. It is a DOUBLE degree.
grab this chance and make the most of it.

I guess sometimes we consider some Schools because of the country where they are placed, but NUS is, indeed, an astonishing Law School. And remind that you have the possibility to achieve a second LLM degree in NEW YORK (NYU) with this degree. And NYU is better than Kings for sure, and I deem it more atractive than LSE in the field of Law.
Anyway, congratulations! It is quite an awesome opportunity!
