ANY SJD applicant?


I have applied NYU, UPENN, chicago, Gtown, Harvard for a sjd degree.

1. I wonder if any SJD applicants have received an admissions from schools that i applied.

2. Do you know if acquiring supervisors is critical for an admission at Harvard? i wonder how competitive for harvard admision as non harvard llm student. (by the way i have acquired the supervisors )

Hello, may I ask which law school you are studying now? some schools declare that only applicants graduated from their LLM can enter into their SJD program, like Yale, Harvard, and Stanford , but I know there is some but rare exceptions .Even other schools don't make the specific requirement, these schools still prefer their own LLM students, therefore, I wanna ask you which school LLM program you are studying, and I believe you are more competitive than other applicants at your school.

1. If you have not studied at Stanford or Yale you can forget admission from these two, as they accept exclusively their own LLM graduates. As regards Harvard, to secure admission, if you are not an Harvard's LLM holder, you must have pursued your LLM degree at another leading law school (say Yale, Stanford, and not sure about NYU Chicago and Columbia).
2. I guess that creating a "link" with a supervisor is quite important, as generally in the SJD application (at least as regards Harvard) your letters of recommendation should come from Harvard's faculty. However, check the specific requirements set by each school you are applying to.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
