Chances of admission


Hey everyone,

I was hoping on getting some feedback regarding top LLM programs in the US (specifically, Harvard, Yale, NYU and Georgetown). I’m from Canada so a little unfamiliar with the US scene.

I graduated a few years ago from a Canadian JD with high honors (say around top 5%). I’ve since clerked at the Federal Court (akin to a US district court) and the Federal Court of Appeal (circuit courts). Have not done any extensive publishing or academic work outside of that.

Any idea if it’s worth applying? All feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

Without any academic work, I would say that you have almost zero chances to get into Yale LLM Program. 

Harvard is sometimes a matter of luck, so I think you should apply and take your chances. 

Concerning NYU e Georgetown, I think you are a strong candidate. I would definitely apply.
