Hey thanks for replying to my post. I have already applied to all three. I was just wondering what could each of them look for in a prospective student?

Think about why you are better than all the other applicants.....

Especially in small programs like Yale or Stanford you may wanna come up being a bit "special"......

Stanford also hosts an academic program: The SPILS (J.S.M. - Master of Science of Law) program. As opposed to the LL.M. track candidates will have to write a thesis that normally involves data based/empirical research. The most outstanding J.S.M. graduates will be admitted to the J.S.D. program. This is an alternative to Yale's academic LL.M. program.

Applicants should notice that their origin country can have a huge impact in their chances of being admitted. A most selective School like Stanford (only 18 spots for the LL.M. CGP) will only admit very few candidates from a small country (Austria for example) while people from Brazil and China have a clear advantage.

Why do you think so? (I am asking you because I am Brazilian and I really hope you are right).

It's true that Stanford is extremly selective; a lot more than Berkeley actally; Berkeley is ranked 7th while Stanford is ranked 2nd. Even on the J.D. level Stanford accepts only around 150-170 1 Ls. In contrast, Harvard accepts around 600-700 each year. The advantage is that the student faculty ratio is benefical at S (and also Y) while it is not so good at H.

Getting into (Y)ale, (S)tanford and (H)arvard is not easy though.

Brazil is an emerging market and the Us firms need more grads from there in order to have them working on transactions that relate to Bra (IPO at NYSE).

The downside in Standford is however that Bra makes the biggest part of the applicant pool. It is therefore very difficult to stand out.

A lot of Indians are in Harvard. Some are in Stanford LL.M. Law Science and Technology (as opposed to LL.M. CGP where no Indians are). I am not aware of a special advantage Indians have in the process while Brazilians and Chinese folks clearly have; but rmember the flipside is that Bra and CHI also make up the biggest part of the applicant pool. You will not be the only applicant if you are fron China while you may be if you are from Luxembourg!

So you mean to say Stanford does not take any Indians for the LLM in CGP program?

Stanford also admits Indians to the CGP LL.M. in Stanford of course. Idians are just less likely to apply (they prefer IP law). Therefore, Indians mitgth even have a sligth advantage (less competition among Indians) if they apply to the CGP program. After all, however, Stanford is Stanford and getting in is extremly difficult.

Consider Berkeley, UCLA, Columbia, NYU as a fall back option....
