ADMISSION U OF MIAMI REAL PROPERTY LLM


Pearle
I have a JD from a tier 2 law school in NY; I graduated with a B average (about middle of the class). Does anyone have an idea about the difficulty of getting into the Miami LLM in Real Property program with these credentials? Also, any suggestions for boosting my chances? I would very much appreciate any information anyone may have :) Thanks!

You won't get in this year if that's what you are asking about. The class is very small, and middle of the pack from a tier 2 school isn't going to floor anyone in admissions. My suggestion is to apply very early for the 2007 class. Good luck.

Thank you! Do you think applying in October or Nov for the 2007 class would be enough time?

I wouldn't be so quick to say don't apply. I know of a couple of people from second tier lawschools who weren't at the top of the class who got into Miami's Real Property program and they both applied late this Spring. I think your chances of success are greatly improved if you have any special experience - such as clinic work - or a demonstrated interest in real estate.

Well, if that's true, then their yield on offers must be pretty low.

If an applicant's GPA isn't so great, but they have extensive (over four years) demonstrated experience in real estate development, any opinions on whether this can overcome a poor gpa?


Obviously, the RE development experience will help you. But I don't see why you need an LL.M. if you already have that experience.
