Admissions Credentials LLM 2018/2019


I am currently applying to the LLM programs in some schools and it will be of great help to know my actual chances of admission to help me chose which ones I should be focusing on.

I am applying for: NYU, Northwestern, Columbia, Georgetwon and Stanford.

I am a 25 years old Brazilian Lawyer, graduated from a top school with an average of 69.5/100. Although my academic performance is not outstanding, I have great work experience: 2 years interniship in the chambers of a Federal Judge, 1 and a half year internship in Brazil's leader steel company (actually a British company based in Brazil) and 1 and a half years as a tax legal consultant at a Big four company.

My TOEFL score is 112.

I managed to gathered exceptional recomendations: from a business professor, Phd and member of the Brazilian BAR Federal Council, from the head of legal department of the steel company (She is a Northwestern alumna) and from my senior manager at my current employer.

I am member of Tax Law Brazilian Association, volunteer in several organizations and have published to arcticles in well known newspapers.

So despite all that, considering my not so briliant academic performance, do you guys believe I have a good chance of admission in any of those schools?

Thank you for your help.

Best wishes,

As a general rule, you have a good shot at all of them, except for Columbia and Stanford.

However, you could make the cut in those 2 depending on the quality of your PS and recommendation letters. Admissions look for more than just grades when deciding who's getting an offer, so it's good that you took the chance and applied.

Best of luck. Hope you receive offers from your dream school!

Hey, I know it's been a while since you posted this. 

But I have very similar credentials (same TOEFL score, internship experience and even Big 4 experience), but I have a better GPA (80,9/100), and no published articles. I also have volunteering experience and will get similar LORs. 

I just want to know if you ended up getting accepted in the schools you applied for! That would give a great sense of what to expect. 

Thanks!
