Columbia/NYU LLM


I have a 65-66% average (2.1) from a British LLB programme. Are these grades good enough to get into the Columbia LLM or NYU LLM?

Has anyone been accepted to Columbia or NYU with an LLB average around 65-66%?

From what I read here, US universities values academic record AND work experience. I guess it is better for you relies on your previous work experience.

Hey

Iv been told by alumni from my University - that you can get into NYU with a strong 2:1 and extra curriculars - some work experience good too!

Which Uni are you at dude? Iv applied for NYU - not Columbia though - as they ask for a years work experience.

Thanks! But does anyone know what types of grades are needed for Columbia/NYU LLM? Do they have certain cutoffs for British LLBs?

I believe admission process in NYU/CLS is so competitive... that lead us to believe in luck.. i am sure that with LSAC "A" grade, we may get a chance... however there is no set rules or cutoffs...

NYU admits more than 1/5th of all applicants, Columbia also about 1/7th-1/8th. NYU has 450 places, Columbia has 200.

There are enough possibilities to get into the good US law schools, without being the absolute 1st in your year and extreme other capacities.

I believe a 65-66% can be a good score considering what is the percentage of top 5% of the batch in that year...

Certainly ... 65% is a good score if you are from UK and India ...but if you are from china than 85% is a good score... I have seen this in LSE website

.... may be that is not true for NYU... but you have a good chance...

Does anyone know what the acceptance rate for the NYU or Columbia LLM is?

I heard that the acceptance rate at NYU is close to 40%. Is that true?

About 40% gets an offer I am told. In total they have 450-some places for 2000 applications.

Columbia has 200 places for 1800 applications, by estimation.

Correcting myself

1,650 apps approximately
220 places

It is a ratio of one spot to each 7.5 students.
Which means an acceptance ratio of approximately 13%.

Mhmm they have 220 places, but not everyone accepts, so they make more offers than they have places over the whole period. I think it'll be closer to 18-20%.
