Lucianose,

I would say that it is among U$ 54 and 58 for the Regular LLM and around 70 for the LLM-K with the business certificate. Plus the living costs. Around U$15-20. That's whats I expect.

LMM-SLS , we have a few in common. I also wait responses from Harvard, UPenn, Berkeley, Columbia, NYU and Michigan. I was also rejected by Chicago, but I knew it is a very restricted program with only 70 spots.

Still considering if I should complete my application to Georgetown since it is in the 14th in the ranking, after NW notwithstanding its excelent reputation. They say it is really easy to maintain contact with government agencies when you are down there.

I also did not receive anything from Upenn.

I think LLM Guide asks us to speak mostly in English. Have you heard about that anywhere? I don't know if I am just making stuff up, rs

Congrats to everybody who got accepted and good luck in the schools that will respond soon.

Happy to see that many Brazilians may live in Chicago, either studying in Chicago or Northwestern!

I haven't heard anything from Columbia yet.
But I also asked for an scholarship, so I think they will take some time to analyze my application.

I think I will pay the deposit because others are taking so long to answer. Anyway, what is the factor that will more important for you when choosing an University: position in the ranking, location, small or big classes?

Ranking and location.
Both big classes (networking) and small classes (get to know more your colleagues and professors) have advantages!

Anyone else applied for this one?
