Cornell LL.M. 2014


Thanks, and congrats Hopefulcandidate!

I sent my application on October 1st, it went complete on December 11.

Just like Hopefulcandidate I was also surprised/upset by how much Cornell is emphasizing that we pay to secure our spot on the next class and provide them with proof that we can afford it, even before scholarships or any financial aid is awarded...

Good Luck!

Not sure I would use the word "impressed" stratochelo, I think the word "aggravated" is more suitable here :-/...

I submitted my application on September 23rd, it went complete on October 22nd.

Best of luck...

Any one rejecting their offers from Cornell in favour of the higher ranked T12 Law Schools?

If so , it proves my point that at the very least, the more qualified LL.M applicants are all opting for the T6 with Cornell as last resort.

I noticed from the threads that almost all those who applied to Cornell also applied to a fair number of the higher ranked T12.

Hi All,
just received my admission offer from Cornell!
As with some of you, they were quite rigorous with the proof of financial resources!

Dragon - I'm starating to think that you're an internet troll. Are you actually on LLM-Guide for any other reason but calling people to reject their cornell offers?

For Hopeful Candidate,

I was stating the obvious from my analysis of the threads.

Can you deny that those who applied to Cornell also applied to a host of the other T12 Law Schools? I think not.

Ask yourself this?

If you received offers of admission from Cambridge, Oxford, Stanford and Yale ( not to mention Harvard too ), would you reject all of them and go straight to Cornell? I think not.

If so, it beats me why ( if you did ) you apply to more Law Schools than just Cornell.

Why not just apply to Cornell then? Lack of confidence in oneself I suppose.

Did I call people to reject their Cornell offers? I did not. Please read my threads again. It is not written in the hieroglyphic script.

Tell me if you are going to CORNELL then. If not why?

May be I will see you there at Cornell ( if you decide to go to Cornell ).

I applied on the last day and it still says "Verifying materials for completion" - It was last updated over a fortnight ago and all the check boxes, except for the application fee box, are blank.

I applied through LSAC so I know that all my materials are ready and have been sent. Does anybody have any idea as to the timelines I need to expect?

Is anybody else still under shock given Cornell's high tuition?


I AM. The tuition fees are so high compared to any other law school. I received an offer of admission from Cornell , and of course Cornell is prestigious, Ivy League......But really the tuition fees are incredibly high, but I guess it is a good investment.
