Is 101 on TOEFL possible for Columbia?
I will retake the test anyway, but I would like to know if they are very strict about the 105 requirement

Any score beyond 100 is fine for Columbia. Should you gain admission to their LLM program, they'll just require you to take an English course before classes start

Anyone knows if the Diversity and Innovation clinic is available for the LLM? I tried to contact Professor Susan Sturm but did not get an answer about the recommended research topics.

In general, are clinics and workshops from CLS available for LLM students?? I cannot find any reference on this in the courses section.


At the graduate admissions landing page, they do mention clinics as available for LL.M. candidates. Which of them, they don't.
I also spoke with a former CLS LL.M. candidate and he confirmed that clinics were available. Couldn't give more information than that.

It is either a statement of class rank, or, in my case, a statement saying that your university does not have a class rank, but my average grade during the years of your undergarduate degree was A. We also don't have honor societies in my country...

Yes, it's just a standard letter saying that students are not given a class rank and it's already in the mail. What country are you from? It sounds like your law degree was an undergraduate program?

Joy you are certain to be made an offer. Brazil is the new China and with your bagful of degrees you will be an asset to CLS.

Have you seen numbers listed anywhere or is this just from personal observation? I wonder how many students from my own country are applying....

Just personal observation. I know at least 4 people from my city who are applying this year. I also know some professionals who studied at Columbia and currently work in my area of expertise.There are no statistics though.

Lat year´s ER decisions came out around the 12th of December, thus there is a chance some of us will hear from Columbia by the end of the week!

Fingers crossed!
