Hi Puneet, I have applied for Cardozo. Haven't got my decision yet. I understand that Cardozo makes decisions on a rolling basis? How long did it take for you to receive you response? Also, I did not see any section for scholarships in the form. Do they automatically consider people for scholarships? Thanks and Congratulations!

Thank you very much! yes, cardozo does admit on a rolling basis. they took around 45 days to convey my admission decision. and yes, if you will check their website, you will be able to see the scholarship section. cardozo offers only merit based scholarships. the amount of scholarship will vary from candidate to candidate. they automatically consider every applicant for scholarship on the basis of his/her profile and the candidate doesn't need to apply separately for scholarship.

i have already paid the deposit amount.
best of luck on your application! if there is anything else i can help you with, don't hesitate to contact.

Thanks for this information, Puneet. May I ask how much scholarship you were offered? I am due to find out about my status at Columbia in December. If I don't get through that or If Cardozo offers my a good scholarship, we may be class mates next year!

hey buddy, I applied to cardozo on 19th November. It's been 5 days and the law school has not yet acknowledged receipt of my application although lsac account reflects that the law school has received by law school report. Is this normal? I ask because all the other law firms I have applied to all acknowledged receipt within 2 days. Thanks.

I received notification email from cardozo one day after my application was submitted and my report was sent by lsac. But may be that was due to the fact that i applied very early in the admissions cycle. just do one thing, send them a mail regarding status of your application and they will confirm receipt of your application. One more thing cardozo doesn't provide way to track your application status online like other law schools do. Send them an email, most probably you will get a reply today itself. I did the same thing with few of the law schools i applied to.

I got admitted to Cardozo with the Dean's merit scholarship! Now I will make a decision on whether to enrol or not! I have to say the scholarship is enticing!

Many congratulations to the two of you. If I may, how is it exactly that you hope to benefit from a year at Cardozo? Keeping in mind that's a year of no-employment and no professional progress. Does it help a lot in your home country. I'm just curious.

Hi JSD, do you mean to say a year at Cardozo will not help my professional development or a year of a us llm will not help my professional development? Thanks.

I do not presume such a thing. I am just curious because IP is a very specialised area and would not have thought that taking a year away from work (=losing 12 months' wages) plus some $$$ on the tuition plus possibly loss of a year of seniority would be worthwhile. Judging from your optimism I can only surmise that it would give you an advantage in India but feel free to correct me.

Hi JSD, thank you very much for your insight even though it is totally rude, mean and none of your goddamn business. and obviously this is just my opinion and not sah130's. Somehow you felt it obligatory on your part to spread your bullshit opinion and knowledge to us. Did it ever occur to you that i was going for an academic degree in the field of law where i would like to specialise in. Obviously it didn't. And where it is wriiten that i cannot practice in more than one areas of law after getting a specialisation. You don't know anything about us, our plans but still somehow you arrived at conclusions which were incorrect from the beginning. Funny thing is first you make presumptions and then ask us to correct you if you are wrong. I don't recall asking you shit. Who the hell invited you to say anything.

Don't you have something useful to do with your time instead of making rude comments on people's posts. Do you have some kind of frustration or what which you just keep venting on other people by making comments on their choices.

JSD, please don't try to act all helpful. You mind your own business. Whatever we decide, the consequences of our choices will be on us. So please spare us from your bullshit.

Dear me, you reinforce my impression that Indians are very thin-skinned and cannot tolerate anything but platitudes.

Anyway FWIW it's rather ambitious to accuse me of being rude. Blunt yes, forthright yes but not rude. At least not to you two lucky Cadozo scholarship winners. Au contraire, I have been merely inquisitive as it perplexes me how seemingly outstanding people abandon rational decision-making on certain matters, LLMs being one of them. No doubt you have read my posts on the Biglaw thread about the foolhardiness of enrolling into an LLM - a view corroborated by others on this forum. It's a free forum. If you find it harsh, don't bother checking in.

How you react to others is one of the few things in life completely in your control. If this is how you flare up when asked a very direct question, you have much distress awaiting in life. Getting needled into rancor by an online post only demonstrates your neediness and desire for validation from others.

Good luck in Cardozo, mate. You'll need it.

Dude you making generalisations about Indians says a lot about you than me. And again please keep your opinions with yourself. Free forum doesn't mean taunting someone or picking holes in their choices. And what direct question? Maybe I am not talented or rational like you but I am sure not a jackass which you surely are. I guess you weren't taught where you come from that it is disrespectful and rude to give opinions when no one asked for it but what do I know, I am a thin skinned indian.

Please feel free to make presumptions about me and my character. It will definitely tell me what kind of a person you are.

Hi JSD, I don't want to add fuel to this fire. While I agree with your grim outlook on llm to some extent, my reasons for doing an llm are somewhat specific. I understand that it is a big decisions and that at the end of the day, the degree will need to justify me leaving my earnings. In short, a client in the US (a new york boutique law form) wants to absorb me after I clear the bar so I am certain I will be able to recover whatever I lose pretty quickly. The fact that I've almost got a full ride makes my decision easier.

I don't think your initial post was rude. It was blunt, which I appreciate in a weird way. But your comments regarding Indians was uncalled for. I hope you will realize that.

Thanks.

Good approach. This is the ideal platform for launching an LLM and if there was some way I would have pinned your post on this forum as a sticky for aspirants to take note. You seem to have planned this very carefully and are well placed to enjoy the year at Cardozo without worrying about the future too much.
