Hi Gregor, I am still waiting for decision from UCLA. Don't know why it takes soooo long.

hello lexnex and Gab!

My application is somewhat different because I initially expressed an interest in UCLA's SJD program and was offered to make an application after preliminary assessment. However, as I had difficulty finding a faculty member with expertise in my intended area of research, I switched from an SJD application to a LLM one. My letter of recommendations were written to recommend me for entry into the SJD program etc etc. Application form was completed right towards the end.

All in all, extremely pleased and impressed with UCLA so far. However, unclear about financial aid / scholarship yet though.

Re Gab, are you attending UCLA? I am from Singapore but attended law school in Australia so I am unsure which "country" was I assessed under. I will most probably defer if I have no financial aid / scholarship because of financial considerations! What about you?


Cheers,
Greg

Thanks for sharing your info, Greg. Best of luck for your pending financial assistance/aid application. I assume if a school offers acceptance based on any such quota/seat based on country specific representation, then it may be applicant's domicile country and in your case it must be Singapore and not Australia.

Thanks lexnex, are you still waiting for a decision? I hope they will give you a positive decision in this upcoming week.

Have you been accepted elsewhere too?

Just FYI, the admission e-mail states that there are approximately 900 applications this year and they intend to have a class size of 60! I hope you are in one of the 60!

I declined the offer for 2009-2010 academic year, but asked for the deferral of my admission and was granted with it!!!!
So I am happy that my spot will help someone from the waiting list!
See you, who have been granted with a one-year deferral too, the next 2010-2011 year! ;)

I am a practicing attorney in Texas with over twenty years of experience who was accepted to the UCLA LL.M 2009-2010 program and who intends to matriculate. I find some of the comments on here to be misinformed, particularly those regarding domestic students getting LL.M.s. The comment about LL.M.s being the "last refuge of scoundrals (sic)" is inaccurate and insulting. During my career, I have worked for one of the premier firms in the country -- Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher -- and in-house for two Fortune 200 companies, both major airlines. I went to a law school ranked around 50, and I did well. I was offered and got the same jobs that people who went to more highly ranked law schools did. I have lived in Texas my entire life, but my jobs have taken me around the world. I have had a great career so far, and I have made wonderful friends who have helped me along the way. Now, I would like to experience Southern California and switch from the airline industry to the entertainment industry. I believe a UCLA LL.M. with an entertainment specialization will increase my credibility with prosective employers. I am also taking the California bar exam this summer. After over twenty years of hard work, I have the time and the money. I look forward to returning to the academic world at my advanced age (49). The sweeping statements about law schools and job prospects on this site are generalizations that just don't entirely hold up in the real world, but they were some of the same stereotypes and prejudices that were swirling around when I went to law school. I tend to think they are perpetuated by the fearful and unconfident, successful or not. You can go to the best law school and do well, but fall on your face after graduation. Similarly, you can have a resume that is not as stellar, but make a huge success of yourself. There are many examples of both. Times are changing (as they always are), and flexibility is about the best asset you can have -- that, and the ability to work to your full ability at whatever you do while keeping your ego in check for the inevitable times when you are not the smartest guy or gal in the room. Biases based on outdated paradigms aren't useful to anyone. Good luck to everyone!

Well said post!

Hopefully, I have the pleasure of meeting you later this year but I doubt so given I will likely be deferring!

I am in the same condition, but I tending to consider the USC offer, even more because a scholarship is a great recognition of your backgound, in other word, its easier to get in paying the sticker price than get in with the aid... dont you think?
