Thanks ringirl! Good to know where we're standing. I was wondering why they hadn't even requested my LSAC report yet.

Thank you! I was short of feeling horrible before. Cornell's courses and faculty do impress me a lot. In fact, the location also impresses me - its a lot of money, as u said, might as well spend it a quality environment.

Hi,

I have also applied for LLM program of Cornell law school. I'm studying MBA and currently on a student exchange program at Cornell Business School (Johnson School) for the spring semester. I dropped my application in person at the admission office the week before the deadline but I have not yet heard anything from the school. I really really really hope to get some feedback from them soon.

Big congrats for those who got accepted into Cornell law school!! If you need any info on the housing, transportation or anything, feel free to let me know. I am more than willing to help. I have spoken with some of the law students here about the program and got some useful info as follows:

- LLM students are allowed to design their own program, choosing courses from those offered to JD students (same class but you will be graded separately)

- small class, with students being encouraged to participate in the class room.

- Professors and supporting staffs are nice and friendly.

Also, I'd like to provide you guys with some info in which i think useful for your preparation:

- The cost of living here is not cheap. Food on campus and in college town is quite expensive (I normally spend $10 for lunch, tax and tip included, and $15-$25 for dinner).

- Law school is located right next to college town so, from what i heard, most of the law students lives in or near college town.

- Apartment is also not cheap. A small size of studio may cost you around $1000 - $1200 and you will also have to pay for electricity and gas bill (~$30). The water is usually included in the rent. Given that you have roommates and live in two or three bedrooms apartment, the rent per month per person is around $600 - $800. On-campus housing is also available for students but from my own observation the room is quite old and the price range is pretty much the same as other private housing in college town.

- It's very cold here. Last night was -15 c...freezing cold. Though it can be very humid and hot during summer. People say it is very beautiful and breezy during spring.

- It is true that the campus is kind of out in the middle nowhere. 4 hr form nyc. However, it is located very near to Ithaca airport - about 10 minutes.

- students are eligible for free bus pass here (hooray!)

- taxi services are available on call only!! (and it's expensive)

Hope the above info is helpful. Good luck everyone!

I guess they are processing the applications group by group, we are in the same group to be processed, since I am the same with all of you since 7th January and good luck to everyone!

That is some very useful info and tip. Thanks so much! I have checked on the web, I saw one house with 4 bedrooms in collegetown is up for USD2000 per month, which measn $500 per room, exlcuding utilities. It seems cheaper than campus housing.

Hi,

I just dropped by the admission office to ask about the estimated timeline for decision making. The admission staffs were very helpful. I was informed that the applications have been reviewed on a country by country basis, as well as the completion date of your application. The applications from the same country will be reviewed simultaneously. It means that you will be competing against the candidates in your own country. As such, I assume that applicants from the same country would probably receive the decision on the same day.

However, I know some law students here who came from the same country but received the decision two weeks apart. So, for those whose friends have already been admitted and you have not yet received any decision from the school, you may still have a chance : ) keep on hoping!

Cheers,

My application was completed on Feb 08,and i got admission on Feb 23-the decision making progress is quite speedy i think, though i did waited for about two months to get to the "under review" stage...and that is not good at all
