Chances of Acceptance in T14


pcmb

Hey!

I'm a recent graduate (in the top 15 of my class). I landed a gig after graduation as a researcher for an extremely renowned scholar who graduated from a top Ivy League school and is teaching currently at an Ivy League. I have similar experience with another academic as well who has a similar track record. I also worked as researcher (legal department) for an organization directly related to my area of interest for 11 months, and piloted a pretty important project. I haven't published in my own name yet, but have pretty strong recommendations from all of the above in terms of my research work.



I've been told to apply to T14. Wanted some insight on my chances of getting in. Any leads?

Most American universities adopt a holistic approach for the review of LLM applications, and typically focus on more than just the academic aspect thereof. 

While most of the T-14 universities prefer candidates who have at least two years of  work experience before applying, this is just a preference and not a requirement. Given your class ranking and involvement in legal research (especially with an Ivy League professor), I would say that you have fairly good chances at being admitted by at least a few of the T-14. 

Perhaps consider requesting a nice recommendation from said professor, as this could go a long way in ensuring the success of your application.

Hey. Thanks so much. 


This really makes me feel a lot better.
