By the way, are you talking about the Pre-LLM courses or the English courses?


I am talking about the intensive English courses.

I would take that course too. However I don´t know who is the visa process taking into account that I am from Colombia. Can I study the pre-LLM course with the visa for the master?

juandalva, check the info and, specially, the links posted by gabi in this thread.

It seems that if you want to attend the pre-LLM course you just need to inform it when applying for your I-20; thus, they will send you the form with the date of the commencement of the pre-LLM course. So, as far as I understood, you will need and obtain one visa only.

I'm still not sure about housing, though. I don't know whether it will be possible to live in the apartment that will be sorted to you for the entire LLM. Maybe that's because until now I didn't receive the codes and passwords for applying for housing and I don't know when we can expect to receive the keys of the apartment.

in your housing application you'll need to indicate 3 options for dates to enter the place where you'll be staying. I guess you just need to adjust this information with the timing of the preLLM course...but this is just an idea.

Hi RAGS, I'm also from Brazil.

I've been told that there are several options to live off-campus. As far as I'm aware, living off-campus can be a better option for those who intend to enjoy NY more intensively. But it seems that the lease is more expensive.

On the other hand, an LLM told me that he/she is enjoying to live closer to the campus as there are always several things to be done/watched in the campus.

But I think it really depends on what you want. I'll certainly apply to live in-campus: it seems easier to get a good place and I want to be close to the university.

I will probably live off campus as well, but I think not too far (upper west side? morningside heights?) so I can enjoy all the social events :)

Which is, btw, very bureocratic, specially with regards to proof of financial capability...quite stressed about this and my bank is giving me a hard time with the proper documentation (it seems their afraid that any statement may be regarded as their liability so they use that cover ass language which may not be very helpful for visa matters...) Argh!

It really seems bureaucratic! I've requested the statement from my bank earlier today (Itau - what's your bank, gabi?) and I don't know what to expect.

As far as I understand you should request a statement (I've requested a statement written in English, so I don't need to send them an official translation) provided by your bank with your investments, in order to meet the costs involved in your LLM.

look here for the specific requirements

my bank is itau as well. Initially I sent them a model but they declined saying they already had a model approved by their legal, so they couldn't use mine. Their model was terrible so I spent long time to have suitable letter furnished. Best of luck!

Hello to everyone! I'm admitted!! Waiting for passwords for housing and visa applications. Have any thoughts towards Morningside Heights? Is it a good place for living?

No problem!

Does anyone know whether is possible to request the I-20 form for your dependent after requesting your own? I know that it is said that your dependent can join you at any time, but is it necessary to request the forms at the same time?

Gabi, I hope you can help me with this also!
