Frenchies going to the US this fall?


Hedek

Hi everyone,
Francais(e) vous avez décidé d'aller où?

For several reasons I really wanted to go to D.C... and I was accepted at Georgetown (International Business and Economic Law LLM). ;-)

The only other I applied to was HLS which gave me no answer so far (so I guess I've been rejected by now). I was also planning to apply to George Washington but GULC accepted me before GW's application deadline.

Anyways, where are you guys going? I hope we can get in touch. Best of luck everyone, and may your LL.M year be a most tremendous and life-changing experience.

Hi guys,

I'm French too and I will go to UVA. I am still waiting for Georgetown's decision but I will accept UVA's offer anyway.

Congrats! Definitely looking forward to meeting you! Summer programs are great if money isn't a problem and you want to spend the summer in the US. The D.C. area is amazing to spend holidays in and have fun, from Annapolis to Rosslyn and Georgetown, etc. Just visiting all the museums in the Mall takes like 2 weeks.

That being said, I doubt it's worth it if you're doing it only for academic/professional reasons: it won't add much to your resume. Unless of course you feel your english is rather weak and could use the extra month to practice.

As for me, I'm drying out all my bank accounts and taking a loan to finance this year of study so spending an extra $4000 wouldn't be a wise decision.

Regarding the open house event, I thought it was tomorrow, March 20th, has it been changed? Either way, business obligations are unfortunately keeping me away from Paris right now.

thx for your input..! the Foundations cost is really what makes me wonder about it, indeed. I dont think either it would add much value regarding academic/pro reasons, but i thought it could be useful, in order to get used to the american system etc. plus it allows you to have a room on campus for the whole month of July and that'd give me time to look for an appt.

The Open House is on March 20, yes, but GULC is doing an event in Paris as well, on April 1.

anyway, let's keep in touch !

Hi guys,

Congratulations Opaloise. I can definitely understand why one would prefer the smaller class size and increased personal attention students receive at UVA. Just don't dismiss GULC (provided you do get accepted) too quickly.
As an international student, an LLM in the US isn't only about academics and specializing in a field of law. It is also about meeting people, building networks and taking advantage of the international reputation and location of your school. Therefore larger class size and being in Washington D.C. also have their advantages.

Anyways, Charlottesville isn't that from from DC, I definitely hope UVA's and GULC's international LLM students will plan an event together or something.

Hi guys, French and going to CLS.
Great great news koala, Columbia's reputation is impeccable. A shame really I can't stand living in New York. The longest I've ever managed to stay there was 4 weeks in a row ;-)

Félicitations cleo. I heard you were granted a 50% tuition waiver from UPenn. That's quite a feat for a non US citizen. Bravo!

I would say experienced lawyer. Took the oath in Paris in 2001.

So, any French accepted to HYS?

I'm getting the impression the acceptance rate of French in the 3 best US law schools has been rather low in recent years.

Has anyone got statistics on Yale's and Stanford's previous LLM classes that could prove me wrong?

Hard to know. Was short listed at SLS in 2007. Did not get accepted eventually though. Never applied to Yale or Harvard. As my interest lies in IP/IT, my choice was either CLS or SLS.

Straight from the 2009-20010 Yale brochure:
"The 20072008 LL.M. candidates at Yale Law School, here with Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh, came from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Korea, Kosovo, Malaysia, Pakistan, P.R. China, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United States."

Do you have an explanation? Are you suggesting that we are being discriminated against? Or is it just pure coincidence? It does not seem to be a dividing battle between civil law and common law as many countries listed have civil law systems...
