Columbia LLM | 2019-2020 Applicants


TSB
Admitted. Really happy because Columbia is my first choice school! Is there any way of asking them to review their financial aid decision though? Other schools are offering me scholarships but not Columbia. Would hate to lose out on the opportunity to attend because of this. Any suggestions?


Congrats LLL! Does that mean they gave you a fin aid decision already? There's no harm in asking them, but when I got in in 2017 I got no funding from them as well and when I queried this, they said they normally can't reconsider the financial aid decisions once they're made. Hope you can still make it!

Hey, do you mind sharing if you applied for an early decision or through the regular cycle?

Is the Exec LLM a filler qualification? Seems bust, a non-starter?

Without the eligibility to sit for the New York Bar with it, it is a huge waste of money and time in my opinion without much value. Like an Edx or Coursera certificate.

Maybe. But the LLM Guide is absolutely not representative. For example, most of my Harvard LLM class mates have never even heard about it (or they just say so :P ). Columbia's admission process is very unpredictable regarding its timeline. I think the way Harvard does it, releasing all decisions on the same day, is much more professional and much less nerve-racking for applicants.

Thanks TSB. But yeah they have sent me their financial aid response (which is zilch)... I've requested help from the financial aid office regarding alternate funding options. Lets see how that goes!
