applying to multiple llms?


Is there a service like LSAC for llm programs? I'm trying to apply to a few tax programs but have not found such a thing. The llm service offered by LSAC is for international students only... what am I missing? Is there just no such thing out there?

Frankly, you're not missing anything. All that LSAC does for international LL.M. students is offering a foreign transcript credential service. As a prospective student with transcripts/degree certificates in non U.S. format you can send them your material and they evaluate it and send the file on to the schools the students apply to. This is not only costly (185 USD for the evaluation and 5 school reports, every additional report costing 15 USD) but also veeeeeery time consuming and tedious. Oh, they report your TOEFL score too. Nothing else. Especially they can't be used for recommendation letters which is a shame imho since those are hardest to get in large quantities.

The applications btw you have to fill out at the individual law schools anyway (and pay the application fees) so the service would not deliver on what you asked for even if it was open to US students.

Good luck with your applications.

how do applicants deal with the letters of rec issue? just ask the recommender to send it to multiple schools?

For more convenience I just asked my recommenders to give all the letters to me to be sent off with the rest of the application material. Still took some convincing for them to make 10 copies to different schools.

About the letters of recommendation : Yes, as said by Miss Chatterbox, Universities accept the letters to be sent from the applicants, as long as they remain closed, sealed and signed on the seal.
Thankfully, my professors accepted to give me 14 (lol) LC.


By the way, with LSAC, next year applicants will be able to send letters of recommendation, which should make it a lot easier. As for now, this service for LC is just for JD, but will be for LLM next year.
So, professors will have to send one letter to LSAC, and LSAC will send copies to universities.

I asked my recommenders to send directly to the schools. Some of the schools (NYU, GT, UF) have handy electronic submission of letters of recommendation where you enter the email of your recommender and it sends them procedures to submit electronically.

You collect and send the other packets yourself. It definitely took me some time but I did most of them at the same time so it wasn't so bad.
