Chances of getting into NYU or Columbia


Literati

Hey guys, 

maybe you can give me an estimate regarding my chances of getting into NYU (International Law LLM) or Columbia (Traditional LLM, would focus my courses on international law). 
I am a German law student in my final year, waiting to take the first state exam next year in April. I did my specialisation (Schwerpunkt) in International and European Law at an University in the United Kingdom and did pretty well. I have a lot of extracurricular activities (voluntary work), some of them relate to international law. I also have a job that is linked to international law.

I would really appreciate your input and look forward to reading your comments!

chicken so...

Generally speaking you have a strong profile. Your degree, would that be a first-class honours?

Of course, Columbia prioritizes candidates who have at least one year of post-graduation work experience, so that should be a consideration for you as well.

This might be worth looking at as well, it's the application tracker for the NYU intake last year:

... it should give you a good sense of who got in and who was rejected.
