I am also in at UCLA!!! I got the admission e-mail on January 20...but I am still waiting for the admission notices of other LLM programs to make my final decision.

What other LLM programs did you apply?

Hi All,

Any new acceptance letters/emails this week anybody, or UCLA is done for almost all ? Folks let acceptance notices on board so that some of us can know the ongoing results and expectations.

Congrats to all already admitted this year and good luck to ones in waiting.

Lucrecia_Ska, hi, I'm from Russia. That's why I think I received the desired package one of the last that were admitted.

bud, keep the faith! Considering the experience of the previous years, I can foretell you that many people won't accept the offer of the UCLA, icluding some ot them that will be granted the deferral. Thus, there will be additional letters of happiness in March-April.

I wish you all good luck!!! Cross my fingers for you!

The sectary says in the mail that UCLA will try every effort to give the decision no later in March.....
The waiting really kills me! Also, I'm so worried about my TOEFL score! Will it work if I take it again soon? Does anyone know about that?

Rosebud...when did you contact UCLA...and did they say end of March?

Regarding you TOEFL, I really don't know how much new score will help your application, since UCLA has already completed your application and is pending for decision. However, you can take the test and always make a request to consider the new score.

hi, bud, I got the message from Vic Telesino of UCLA on late February:
The Graduate Studies Committee is currently reviewing applications, and I hope to inform you of their decision within the next month. As we received the largest number of applications in our programs history this year, we greatly appreciate your patience as the Committee works to reach its decisions.

hard to say, but if you take a look at the posts about UCLA(incluiding the one metioned by Addicted) it seems to be something around 10 people waitlisted (in the blog, of course...).

sorry to answer the questions that late, but the answers may still be interesting for others:
I applied last year on February 1st (deadline date).
Got the admission message end of March.
Requested a deferral on the grounds of job responsibilities (working for a mclf). Granted.
Coming to UCLA August this year and already very much looking forward to a year in sunny CA.
Good luck for the waiting ones.

I am 3L US student at USD Law and have been put on the waitlist. Does anyone know then movement on the waitlist for the Domestic LLM programs, not comparative law?

To the domestic students- Is anyone aware of the prestige of a ucla llm? I am very aware of their usnwr JD rankings, but does the same correlate to the LLM program? It has always been my impression that llm's are much easier to get into comparatively than the jd program because the best and brightest will have been employed after graduation and that an llm is not that great of an asset outside of tax law. as my classmate put it, "it is the last refuge of scoundrals." Is this true? Do employers look favorably on an llm? I plan to pursue a bankruptcy/tax llm if admitted if that helps your answer.

manwithnoplan, my friend; first n foremost, UCLA has few good specialisations like corporate business law and entertainment law and ranked quite high among top tier schools;
Secondly, in my humble opinion if a candidate holds a JD in US then definately he has no need to go for LLM in any circumstances, unless he intends to go for some sort of scholarly teaching or has not taken credit in JD in intended specialized area of law practice. Your friend may be correct in the assessment, but thats applicable only to domestic llm candidates, as you can understand why would one chose to spend one more year of fortune and time after doing JD, if the intent to practice law. Now, in my view, LLM is not easy to get into,( if you look at pool of candidates come from round the globe and their credentials) and its been created with a different purpuse and intention. The candidates who pursue this program, have already proved their basic logical reasonings, writing skills in their own territorial jurisdictions and come to pursue this advance degree in US. So there exists no curriculum or aptitude testing for advanced degree in law as opposed to degrees in social sciences and biological sciences except some sort of language skills.
Thirdly, in my opinion ranking of school mostly depends on faculty, jresearch, job placements, specialities and other recognitions of the schools. In my view, rankings which exists for JD is the same for LLM programs because the same faculty conducts business for LLM candidates and all those employers come for JD placement, schedule slots for LLM candidates as well. Ofcourse few schools focus on clinical and specialised deciplines and thats a different point to consider.
Fourthly, best n brightest always get their ways into law firms even in this economy with and without LLM, you're absolutely correct tax law does helps but before that try to talk to couple of firms and ask their opinion about how much importance really they give to candidates with advanced degree in tax law with JD.
Goodluck !!
