Scholarships and Greencard


Hi, Everybody,
I am going to apply for the LLM in International Tax Law. I would like to know if it is anything different in the process when the person already has the Greencard?
And what about the Schoolarships, is it a problem to apply for them if the student has the greencard?
Thanks

What do you mean? I know this expression but I do not know to apply to this case.
You mean that I went to far. Nothing to do about it?
Is it bad for the LLM applications or for scholarships or both?
Thanks!
Nobody else could say something?

"Alea Jacta Est" is what Julius Caesar is reported to have said on January 10, 49 BC as he led his army across the River Rubicon in northern Italy.

I thought you would understand.

I was just messing with you.

I don't think there would be any difference if you have a greencard. The big advantage is that you would be legally allowed to work in the US after graduation without the need of obtaining a work visa.

Thank you for your answer. Someone else has a different opinion or something else to tell me about it?

Does anybody here can recommend some Scholarships for who is applying for the International Tax LLM at NYU?
If yes, when is the right time to try each scholarship?

I also think richardvf is right.

I liked the post about cross the rubican. One question - what is a person like you doing studying law? You should be writing.... and not legal left stuff.

Thank you for your suggestion "IntLaw", maybe I should be writer, but I fear I lack the talent for such profession, although I didn't quite follow what you mean by "legal left stuff", nonetheless I am sure it is a valid suggestion.

Notwithstanding, I think a good lawyer should not a be a technocrat, which only knows how to study and apply the Law, culture and history can only help you broaden your horizons, and help you become better at what you do.

Albeit, I hereby apologize for dulling you with a "writer's nonsense", please rest assured that if next time I make a remark regarding the Latin language, I will try to confine myself to the legal aspects of the of the roman legal system like the "Corpus Juris Civilis", or the Leges Licinae Sextiae.

sorry I left out a word after 'left'

I meant to write 'the legal left brain stuff'

The right brain is the lateral, creative, funny part of the brain and the left brain the logical rational (really IntLaw. Gee you are a genius :-)

Your right brain is more active than left. World can use a few more Tolstoys and Dostovs ....

nLaw, I am sorry but did not understand what the outcome of your response was.

But in order to wrap things up, and not to further "pollute" this topic with "faits divers", I want to explain that my intention, when I said to "aleajactaest" to "cross the Ribicon", was to make a friendly remark to the user who posted this topic, whose user name was "alea jacta est" - the words that Caesar used at the "point of no return".

However, he did not understand and asked me "what on Earth did I mean with my comment?". For that reason I explained, so that he could see that I was not a schizophrenic on a rampage in the LLM-Guide, and that in fact I was merely being nice.

I thought people would understand, especially "aleajactaest", but they didn't, so I guess it was out of context, and inappropriate, and for that Im am sorry.

On the other hand, maybe I misinterpreted your post, but making comments about my supposing misguided vocation seemed a bit rough. Regarding "gee IntLaw you are a genius", I did not understand this either. But if this was meant as to offend, I am sorry to disappoint, but I won't react to these type of exchange of words.

In conclusion, I would like to add that I will not engage in exchanges of "witty remarks", because this is not what I was looking for, when joined the "LLM Guide". Hence, I will abstain myself of posting anymore friendly remarks, in order to avoid future similar situations.

Thank you,

Kind Regards

as for the gee intlaw stuff, it was rebuke to myself for stating the obvious as in - yes intlaw, everyone knows the left brain-right brain stuff. sorry it didnt come out too well.

you are alright. not only are you alright, i really think you have a lot of creativity that should be utilized beyond narrow confines of legal field i.e in addition to being a lawyer, not in lieu of, you should explore the creative fields. i mean it and mean it as a compliment.

and hey, this board is for exchange of friendly thoughts and ideas. dont limit yourself as long as your intentions are honest. you will make mistakes so what? we all do. only thru mistakes can tomorrows new ideas emerge.

Thanks, IntLaw.

Sorry I misinterpreted your comment.This was only my 2 comment in my brief history in the LLM Guide, so I am still finding my own way.

Still I prefer not to make anymore "witty remarks", as they may be often misinterpreted, and I dont wan't people to confuse sense of humour, with cockyness (which I don't believe I fall into the category).

As for mistakes, sure... I make them everyday... and hope to make them until the day I die, bacause this is a sign I am trying and learning new things.

Kind Regards.

Hi, Everybody, I am back!!
First of all, thank you for all the comments about my post. I needed to have an opinion about the fact that I have a green card and how it could affect my LLM applications.
Second, I did not know exactly in what historic moment Julio Cesar said that phrase. I was so worried about my situation that I did not think about the meaning of my name when I saw your answer. Dont worry; I know what this phrase means. I studied Latin for two years at my school. I would like to say thank you, because you had simplicity when you shared this information and you did not judge me because I did not know that.
Just to let everybody knows, I already applied for NYU, Columbia and pretty soon I will apply for Fordham. I think Columbia is tough for me to get in because they do not like to accept to the LLM students who wants to stay in US. for a while after the LLM program.
I hope I will be accepted in one of these three Law Schools. My order of preference is : NYU, Fordham and Columbia. I also need to look for scholarships. Any advice about how to get scholarships for these law schools?
Just one more thing, I am a woman. ;)

I did not read the replies, so I dont know if anyone mentioned it or not. with ur GC you could apply for Federal Stafford unsubsedize loan. which would be 20,500 annualy. as for the scholarship you should check the school u would like to attend

Thank you, Antoniett!
I will look this kind of loan.
The main scholarship that NYU offers in my field I cannot apply because I am a resident.
Columbia's scholarships are tough. But I still have hope.
Fordham has a program to get loans.
Let's see! :)

Hi Aleajactaest,
First, the post is great, lots of bright minds, enjoyed a lot. Second, you just read my mind, mentioning your. You can apply to AAUW.org (American Association of University Women), it's very easy and you have to apply by Dec 1, meaning they have to physically receive your application by that date and the LL.M. scholarship is 18K. So hurry up! As your 1st choice is NYU you can apply for Hauser, and there you'll need to write a couple of essays, i.e. 3 of them and hopefully you'll get a tuition waiver or other smaller scholarships that you will automatically be considered for. Columbia is also pretty generous with scholarships. No need to separately apply, they consider you automatically as well.

Good luck and keep up great posts:-)!
