Berkeley LL.M 2013/2014

Hi, did someone applied to the ADP scolarship ? Can you confirm to me that it is only bout checking a box in the admitted students website ?
It is the only thing I've been instructed to do, yet I am a little bit worry as, checking in last years threads, it seemed a lot more complicated than that (and included self and parental ressources forms).
Furthermore, do you know if we will have the answer before the new deadline (March 8) ?

Thanks a lot !


I checked that same box and also foud it a little strange.

Yes, students in the Academic Year LL.M. program are permitted to take classes from other Schools by permission of the department - but it will not count towards the LL.M. degree requirements. Any classes you might take at Haas or Goldman would be in addition to the 21 required credits in the Law School for the LL.M. They would not substitute for any courses in the LL.M. curriculum.

I hope this information is helpful! Please feel free to contact us at llm@law.berkeley.edu with any other questions.

Dear folks,

Are you aware whether Academic LLM candidates may take classes elsewhere besides Boalt Hall, such as Haas Business School or Goldman School of Public Policy?

This is something important in my perspective.

I have been looking for this information, but couldn't find it.


Thanks!


Is anyone still waiting for the admission decision? I see that some people have already been accepted whereas others still have not received any answer. thanks in advance!

Hey Guys, i havnt got anything form Berkley law, no wait list or rejection, can I assume i am going to get rejection or not???

Thanks


Not exactly. Do not worry. Here is the feedback I got from them:
"Thank you for your email. Your application may still be under review, as we have many applicants and thus not all decisions are sent out exactly at the same time. Because you haven't received a letter from us yet, this does not mean you are on the waiting list. Do not worry about the deadline response date of 3/8. The date will be adjusted accordingly to applicants who receive later responses."

So finger crossed. Wish all of us good luck.

I just got my admission offer for the academic LLM program. I believe they are still sending out letters.

Berkeley was not my only option but surely tops my preference list.

IRILAW, thank you for your kind information!! I think this is rather faster than last year. Maybe there is somewhat competition among schools this year.

got admitted to berkeley and also asked for an extended deadline. they gave me one week... can someone please enlighten why is berkeley requesting confirmation so early. they surely know that many applicants have also applied to other law schools which have not given out responses yet... other universities (such as Chicago) give much more time to make the decision and are more lenient in this aspect. could it be that they want to know well in advance who is enrolling, or is it that they are able to get the students who deem berkeley as their first choice coz students are not able to see where else they got when they make their decision..

Can anyone kindly advice me on possible scholarship opportunities available for academic LLM students at Berkeley.

I am also curious about whether or not there are graduate assistantship opportunities.

To Everyone Who Has Been Accepted and Unsure About the Deadline to Respond:

I realize that it is very difficult for most of you to respond to Berkeley's offer of admission without knowing what all of your offers will be from the rest of the schools you have applied to. Nevertheless, I just wanted to point out that many of us (myself included) have yet to hear any decision from Berkeley.

The reason why Berkeley is requesting your decision so early is likely because you were the lucky first batch of acceptances and they cannot accept more applicants until you decline your seat in the (small and limited) incoming class. This is probably why Berkeley told Irina when she called that they will not be releasing decisions until the first week of March (i.e., AFTER you are requested to respond).

This being said, if I had been accepted and was waiting on other schools, I would understand your frustration and confusion with the process. However, since there are many of us still waiting for decisions, please be considerate of us as well (if possible!).

If you know that you will not attend Berkeley (or another school for that matter), please decline the admission offer so others who desperately want your seat will have the opportunity to attend their first choice school.

If we are all honest about our first choices and make quick decisions, I believe we will all end up at great schools! Nevertheless, if we were hold onto multiple admission offers for too long, we will hurt other applicants who are still waiting to find out if they have been accepted anywhere.

You know for sure that you won't attend Berkeley? which school are you thinking of accepting the offer at?
