Who is heading to Frankfurt - ILF


Hi,

I would like to establish contact with future students of the Intitute for Law and Finance (ILF) in Frankfurt.

It would be nice if we start a community one month before the beginning of the 2007/2008 academic year aiming to help each other with course choices and other difficulties such as accommodation.

Also, It would be nice to know your nationalities.

Cheers

Hi all,

I am also joining the IFL 2007/2008 class.
I can't wait to move to Frankfurt!

I am also finding it really difficult to find any suitable accommodation. Has anyone found student dorm rooms or know what they are like?

Ima, I would be interested in sharing an apartment?
FYI, I'm Irish!

Congratulations to those of you accepted at ILF for 2007/08.
I am thinking of applying for ILF 2008/09 so I am trying to gather more information about admissions criteria to determine the likelihood of being accepted. Did most acceptees have a certain class rank, grade point average, finance work experience, etc? Also, are there any Americans entering 2007/08?

Thanks in advance...further, any replies concerning your application process for ILF and other LLM programs will be very useful to me, (i.e. other schools you were/were not granted admission to)

Cheers!

Hi guys,

Sarah> sounds good! Maybe we can p.m. to get to know each other a bit.

Lamine> Its difficult to say. I know some ILF students 06/07 and most of them seem to have a very good academic background. I have some work experience with big lawfirms and have been admitted to several US schools as well. What country are you from? I think it would be good to contact an alumn from your country to get an idea or try to contact ILF directly.
Btw, there were one or two Americans in class of 2007. I think there should be at least one or two Americans this year (from Columbia University - they have a dual program..), but this is only a guess.

Hi Everybody,

My name is Eszter, Hungarian and also gonna study at ILF in the coming year. As regards accomodation I would suggest to everybody to start searching as soon as it possible. I was in Frankfurt for some days but I wasn't successfull with finding an appropriate room and now it's just more tough since I am not there.

The city is lovely and they have Starbucks :) and nice skyscrapers in which the most good law firms are.

I have a query regarding applying for the programme.
I am Bharath from India. I hope you will answer some my queries with respect to ILF's masters programme.

1. Chances of being admitted increase if I apply earlier?
2. Does prior work experience matter, firstly for being admitted and secondly for understanding the course better?
3. Is Frankfurt as a city 'friendly' to foreigners who cannot speak any German?
4. And roughly the living expenses per month. The school estimates it to be around 800 Euros. Your take on this?

Is it advisable to apply for the programme with a few years of work experience or it is okay to apply as soon as one is done with his/her graduation. In terms of getting more out the programme, will i face any difficulty if i have not worked and join as soon as i finish my under-graduation.

Hi,
I can give my opinion regarding to some of your questions.
1. I don't think it will matter much when you apply as long as they are accepting applications. I remember this year they were receiving applications even in June. I myself applied in November and got the results in early January.
2. I heard there were students who have just finished their undergraduate studies. Probably it is possible to get accepted even if you don't have much relevant work experience provided that you have high academic performance.
3. I have never been to Frankfurt so I can't say much about it. From the random phone calls that I did during accommodation search, I have learned that quite a few people speak English.
4. Living expenses differ from person to person. They say 900 euros is approxitimately real calculation for living in Frankfurt. It is hard to say how much you or even, I myself, will spend per month. At German Embassies, they expect you to have at least 585 euros per months.
I hope my answers will be helpful. But please keep in mind that these are just my opinions, nothing more.

Hi Guys,

Well, I will try to give my opinion:

1 - I do not think it will really matter as well. However, as soon as you apply your chances become bigger!!!

2 - Work Experience will be relevant in your compulsory internship. Without doubt, companies will offer better places for those students within some experience. Also, I am afraid that a bit of pratical knowledge may be good to understand classes.

High Academic Performance is more then required. I believe it is easier to get a place in the UK than Germany if you do not have a good university trascripts.

3 - I went to Germany and people were nice with me. They do speak good english. At least mostly of them, but it is a good opportunity to learn some German as well. Nobody will die for living in a country that do not speak English. Come On!!

4 - Frankfurt is not a cheap city in a comparison with other German Cities, but it is at least 30% cheaper than any UK city. Specialy those neat London, as Cambridge, Reading or Oxford.

Also, it is up to you how much you will spend per month... Keep in mind that you may not work in Germany.

That´s it!!

Cheers

Rafael

BTW,

For those who are still looking for accommodation, please call the Home Company Office.

Unfortunately, you wii have to pay them some money (one month extra), but you will find a place to live very quickly.

That´s it
