yes, sorry, it was I who wrote that we're lagging behind. apparently, it was only the express anticipation that was bigger last year - and that started earlier. the first offers, I believe, came in the week of 14th february.

No news this week? I guess most of the offers may come in the next two weeks, from the apptracker it seems as if this was the period where they noticed people in the regular pool.

Thanks!

The apptracker here at LLM Guide shows that most of the decisions last year were made in the last weeks of February and the first week(s) of March. So, maybe within the next month would be more precise than in the next two weeks :)

How do you view last year's apptracker? Thanks.

Having a look through last years thread - it seems like the bulk of the offers we made on 23 Feb. So if not this week, hopefully the next! Good luck to everyone :-)

I'm getting impatient! Still under consideration, but not for as long as some other people on this thread have been mentioning!

Anyone has any idea if applications are perused based on the region from which the first law degree has been obtained from? How does the admissions committee decide on the merit of a foreign obtained degree?

Last year we had this theory that they indeed process applications by region... but no one knows for sure

what do you think: are all applications rated and ranked against each other or are there specified contingents for every country?

You mean that the former applies?

Consequently, the stronger the application, the earlier an offer is made?

[] applications will be considered and ranked against each other so as to determine when an offer of an LL.M. place will be made.

What I meant was some colleges in the US want applicants to submit the report of an independent assessment agency to determine the strength of their first degree. If, for instance, my degree from India needed to be ranked against a degree from the UK- Cambridge would require the input of an additional agency (Whether within cambridge, or outside of it) as to the various aspects of my Indian degree to ascertain what sort of a weightage to give to it, vis a vis, say, a UK degree? That might be a reason (if any) as to why UK students might obtain offers earlier than students from other regions, where degrees are not as popular? This is just a thought.

I don't think there would be an express contingent/quota of students from each country though

I just have a fair question: do they take into consideration the application as a whole including activities and awards related to law (moot court competitions) or just the grades? it is a question that has always passed my mind...
