Columbia decisions

thanks L&E...In all likelihood, I will choose CLS. So, if I manage to figure out when my tuition deposit form is due, I hope to see you :)

and if it is not? I don't intend to specialize in any one specific area...


If L&E is not your thing, the same reasons apply. Attrition is showing in U. Chicago faculty ranks...

for a general LLM, you need diversity ...CLS with the sheer strength of numbers, provides the diversity...U Chi. is small program for LLMs cant really be as diverse....

Hi! I was admitted in NYU. I applied to CLS and HLS as well, and still have no news at all and I have a deadline for enrollment. I've heard about expedite requests but I don not know if it actually works. What should I do?

Hi everyone! I applied Early review but was deferred to regular cycle on mid december and havent heard from them yet.

Is anyone here in the same position? Or was and now have been notified with the final decision?

I got in Georgetown and NYU, but still need to hear from CLS.


I'm in the same situation as you, was deferred in December and now waiting to hear from CLS. No news yet. I got into G-town and Chicago, but CLS or NYU are my first choices. When did you hear from NYU? If I'm admitted to NYU I'll go there and not wait to hear from CLS.

Anyone else deciding between Cambridge (UK) and Columbia? What are your thoughts?


I've been accepted to both. I think funding could be the deciding factor for me (and it may determine if I do an LLM at all). Going to Columbia would be way more expensive than Cambridge.

Money aside, I think it would depend on what you're interested in studying.

I'm interested in public international law, and I'm not sure which program would be better. I like the idea of being able to take more classes at Columbia, as well as the potential of getting some practical experience (e.g., by doing an externship or working with a clinic). On the other hand, Cambridge is a great program, and I think it could be a cool experience studying in Cambridge.

How about you?

My main interest is in public international law as well, but I would like to take classses in a range of subjects. In that sense Columbia would be really amazing, since you can take something really random without committing 1/4 of your LLM to it. Plus at Columbia you'd get more time with faculty. I think 8 hrs a week at Cambridge is a really unattractive aspect of the programme.
I have however decided to go to Cambridge, unless Columbia offers me financial aid. In that case I will consider the pros and cons again. Basically, I think that Columbia would be a lot more fun but Cambridge is probably held in higher regard. At least that seems to be the case at the English Bar, where I am hoping to work.
Good luck with the decision process!

Btw. There is a thread with great answers from a former student who aas been at both unis (U Chicago and CLS).

I strongly doubt that you get more diversity in a bigger class. If so, everybody would chose NYU, because of the large size of the class and nobody would go to YLS or Stanford anymore...
As far as I know Uni Chicago is recommended by a lot of headhunters because it has a great LL.M. program and a great reputation worldwide (there is no uni with more nobel price winners!). But I think that if you would like to maximize your chances on the US job market, CLS offers you better opporutnities (if one can speak of opportunities at all at the moment).

To the Cambridge question: Cambridge is one of the only schools that is comparable to HLS if not even better (I mean it's about 600 years older and still one of the best). So if you can get there, I think you should give it a shot

HI NY, I heard from NYU last tuesday (at 7pm!). I sent an email a couple of weeks before, asking they were they going to answer and they told me early to mid march. In that sense you should probably wait until next week.

NYU and CLS are my first choices too, but I still have until april 15th to make the tuition deposit at NYU, so I will wait until then. However, probably I will send and email at the end of march to see if they can expedite the answer, whichever it is.

Why would'nt you wait for CLS? Is there a really big difference between both if I'm doing the Corporate LLM?

Hi! today I got the following rejection from Columbia. Is it something what the people generally recieve?

"We regret to inform you that after careful consideration of your application for admission to our LL.M. Program, the admissions committee has concluded that we are unable to offer you admission. To date this year's applicant pool is the most highly qualified in our history. Competition for admission has never been more keen.

Hello. Until now I had no reply for Columbia neither positive nor negative. Do you believe that they are still chances of being admitted or now they have sent all the admissions?

Thank you very much and good luck to all applicants!

@TLF:Did you get the reponse on 15 March? I thought that it's their spring break time so they would not reponse e-mails until next week.
