Australian/NZ applicants for 2020-2021


I have MelbourneAttorney, got a call around 11 AEST today. I applied for the LST programme. It was a nightmare, totally caught me off guard while I was at work and I bombed a few key questions. Unfortunate, given that Stanford was very high on my list.


nice one, Queenslander. What sort of questions did they ask? Good luck.


Thanks mate, they asked questions about my work experience, my interest in IP, and whether I had any questions about the program.

has everyone made their final decisions?

.. also, it will be interesting to see how COVID-19 affects the LLM curriculum (hopefully it won't at all, given Fall is many months away).

Hey mate,

I’m still tossing up, finding it pretty difficult to make a decision between the three. I’m very concerned about Covid, I got an email from Columbia saying they would update us further in June with more data about whether program will run as normal or not. Anyone else heard anything?

I got an email from Duke (got awarded a half-tuition scholarship) saying that the situation "remains fluid" however they are aiming to start the August/Fall LL.M classes as scheduled.

Accepting the craziness of the situation, I just committed to Columbia. Accept it might not run, but going to proceed as per normal and make a call in June.

Hi all,
I’m going to enrol at NYU. I ultimately got scholarships at NYU (Dean’s Graduate Award), Georgetown, UCLA and Northwestern (also got into Columbia and Berkeley with no aid).

I decided that I would risk it on NYU and hope that the situation improves (both with CV-19 and with the Aussie dollar)!

I hope I’ll see some of you in NYC and that everything works out for us :)

I have enrolled at Columbia as well. Fingers crossed that everything goes okay with COVID-19.

Congrats everyone on accepting your offers! I'm also hoping that the COVID-19 situation improves significantly by August 2020 so that classes can commence in the ordinary course.

I'm very excited about Northwestern. The litigation courses seem to be very practical, taught by leading adjunct professors (many of whom are partners at US firms). The LL.M intake is relatively small (no more than 150 I believe).

I'll have to decline Duke's half scholarship offer so I'm not holding it up for another candidate on the waitlist.

Who's going to Stanford? I got rejected by Stanford. Oh well. Curiously, NYU is still giving me radio silence, although it appears to now be a fait accompli.

What’s everyone’s situation like with their jobs? I haven’t told my partners about the LLM yet as I feel like the situation is so fluid... and we are having talks next week about the financial position of the firm and the proactive steps they are taking to address it... So, in short - doesn’t feel like the best time to raise it (although I was planning to around this time to ask for a leave of absence if CV-19 hadn’t occurred)

I'm off to Columbia too! Would anyone else going to Columbia be interested in making a whatsapp group?

Same here! There's a Whatsapp group for admitted Columbia students. If you DM me your number, I can add you to the group :)

Hi all!

Congrats to everyone who go an LLM! I am considering applying for an LLM in a few years but I was just hoping to get a bit of insight from you all regarding the necessary marks. Currently I'm at a Go8 uni (studying Commerce and LLB). My combined WAM is 80+. I am currently doing honours for law at the moment. I am confident I will definitely get honours class 2 but am not certain about getting first class honours. My question is, what are the chances I'll get into the ivi leagues/ oxbridge with those kinds of marks?
