HLS/CLS/NYU Results

This is not always the case as I know of ppl who have gotten in HLS with mediocre grades and even without record of scholarships.

I got accepted to the NYU@NUS program (which I listed as a second choice in my application) and the letter of admission says that I will be accepted to the NYC program as well. Maybe there are other people who indirectly know in the same way that they've been accepted to the NYU-NYC program?

Congrats ScottRooney! Hope you get through NYU @ NYC as well. Isn't it true that the NYC results come out only by mid-march?

Columbia has already sent a first round of admissions by e-mail. Nothing regarding financial aid, that info will be sent until march.

First round? Does that mean that if everyone who has been offered an admission would accept, there would be no seats left for the second round? What exactly does "admissions on rolling basis" mean?

Columbia started to release a few decisions, that's all. We have no way to know how many. I know very talented people who have not heard anything from CLS yet. You should not worry too much.

"Columbia Acceptances
Fri Feb 17, 2006 09:11 PM
Hi all,

Just a more accurate update on the Columbia LLM admissions process. Today I visited the Admissions Office at CLS and I talked with the lady who is in the highest rank in the admission process.

She is a very dynamic, easy to talk to and friendly lady. I asked her a couple of questions about deadlines and then we discussed a bit about the admissions process.

I mentioned the llm-guide website and she said that she is aware of it. She told me actually that it would be good to share the comments below with all the people waiting for replies:

- they received more than 1600 applications this year
- they will admit about 200-210 people from all over the world
- the selection process works on a rolling basis
- each application is given several readings
- each time the Committee convenes they have many files in piles (randomly) and the Committee goes through each one of them as many times as they need to reach a decision
- they examine each application very carefully and they do not stick only to 'grades', rather they look also at the recommendations and the personal statement. Basically, since almost everyone applying there has high grades, they see e.g. at extracurricular activities or activities to the benefit of a community.

Re the time they examine each application:
-the whole process is random; i.e. you might have applied in early-November but your file may accidentally be reviewed on the pile containing other applications which have arrived in mid-December. So, basically the question on when an application went complete does not make any sense.
-they do not examine appls by country and they do not release decisions by country
-they do not examine appls by grade
-they do not examine appls by previous school etc.
-the whole process takes much time. She mentioned that people you have not heard so far should not worry, because this only means that a decision has not been made for them yet, and nothing else.
-the process takes till the end of april or even early may; i.e. they are still less than half-way through."

I've been told that as long as you have not received an answer, they just haven't discussed you file...so, nothing to worry, because no news is at least not bad news...

I still hope that they will decide soon, because I have offers from other unis...

Doesn anyone know if NYU decides early or rather mid march?

Did you not ask for an expedite decision?

From what I've heard, NYU is rather early march.

Hey guys, just went through this thread: http://www.llm-guide.com/board/41265/5 on Harvard admissions. Looks like March is gonna be a super stressful affair. Am keeping my fingers crossed.

I check my HLS tracker every few hours - the thing hasn't moved since January 6, when it waived toefl. Has anyone's tracker moved after January 6? they've received all my docs like reccos and transcripts.

No, not yet. Thought, I wait one more week. Should I?

IF I were you (but I'm not ;) ), I would wait for another week. Maybe two weeks before the other deadline, I'd ask them for a quick decision... No need to rush them if it's not necessary.

That are exactly my thoughts...thx.

Do you know if NYU also would agree on an expedite decision, if I prove them that I have deadlines?

Regarding NYU, I have no idea... If you're accepted by CLS, I guess it won't matter a lot.

This first round has the objective of informing very talented student about their admissions, because in many ocassions they accept other offers in order to have something secure.

Dear ScottRooney:
Nice to know that you got the offer from NYU, and great congraduations.
I am wondering that where you will you study, in New York or Singpore when you are enrolled,and how long will you stay there? It said that if candidates studied at SIngpore, they can go to Ney York to sit for the Bar of States.
Do you get the full scholership for the joint program?
Your reply will be appreciated much. and I would like to keep in touch with you and send me an email please if it is convient to you.
my email address: richardliunankai@gmail.com

Best regards,
Richard
