That was also my case. Got in through the early review program. I guess regular cycle admissions are not being released just yet.

Hi Guys. I understand from other posts that you're waiting for replies from other Universities. Did you receive any answer from NYU or Harvard? I also applied to UPENN (approximately on late October) and haven't received any answer yet.

I'm still waiting to receive offers from other universities (including Harvard, NYU and UPenn) but the only ones that will make me change my mind on Columbia will be Harvard or Stanford, if I will get an offer from one of those universities I may refuse Columbia otherwise not a chance that I will attend any other school but Columbia.

I am in a similar situation, only Harvard may make me change my mind (didn't apply to Stanford). I still have doubts on NYU. Don't you? You are sure about Columbia over NYU? In spite of NYU's better ranking?

I'm exactly in your situation Fjimenez!

Besides Harvard, however, I would be tempted to turn Columbia's offer down in case I was accepted in the LLM-SJD Program in NYU. In that scenario I would have a great problem to solve!

Hey Fernando, I've been admitted to Columbia in the early review too .. and like most I am awaiting decision from HLS and Stanford.

I've applied to NYU and UPenn too but as far as Columbia v. UPenn is concerned I dont think there's but debating .. Columbia takes the cake.

However Columbia v. NYU is the tricky one.. However based on vast opinion (from people at NYU, Columbia and from other Lawyers in my country) and in my personal opinion too I believe Columbia has an edge. So I will be sticking with Columbia despite the NYU result.

The only offers that will make me change my mind will be a positive answer from HLS or Stanford.

I am in the same position of lawadd08 and, as usual, I totally agree with him on the Columbia vs. NYU vs. HLS vs. UPenn vs. SLS debate!

Does anyone have an opinion on the rankings between Columbia, Harvard and Cambridge? (job in US is not an objective, and the field is corporate law)

In Corporate Law, in the U.S. the ranking should be 1.Stanford; 2. Harvard 3. Columbia. As with all rankings it is debatable if this is correct and I believe that in the end the difference is so marginal that it is difficult to state which one is better.

I don't know how Cambridge would rank compared to such U.S. law schools.

Consultt,

Thats a rather interesting query you've poped up..

Based on my knowledge, I'd have to agree with Miki on 1.Stanford; 2. Harvard; and 3. Columbia as far as US is concerned.

However when you have to judge between the above colleges and Cambridge.. The comparision would rather be incomplete if you neglect the job prospects post an LL.M in these prestigious schools.

So with regards to the job market, although I my opinion could quite be termed as amaturish considering I haven't worked/ applied for work in UK or US, I would believe passing out from Cambridge and applying for a job in US would make your propects difficult as opposd to passing out from one of the above three US Law Schools and applying for a job in US and vice versa.

I would believe it would be be difficult to draw a comparision, based on factors other than job prospects, in such a narrow competition and it would be safe to say then that Stanford, Harvard, Columbia and Cambridge belong to the same league.

Hi everyone. I'd like to know, from those admitted to Columbia, what are your academic grades? And is there anyone here who is a last-year law student and got admitted?

Thank you for your help.

Hi MiLa.Ramires,
my Italian academic grades are 110 out of 110 (1%).
I graduated in 2002 so I have +5 years of working experience.
When last year I spoke with the Office of Graduate Admissions at Columbia they told me that they value very much the previous working experience and that if you are a newly graduate you should have outstanding academic records in order to be admitted.
