Has anyone heard yet if they have a place on the LL.M./J.S.D. in International Legal Studies at NYU?

They only inform us about those decisions end of April. It is a pity, because if I would have been admitted to this program I might have attended NYU. Now however, I did already let the deadline for the Grotius Scholarship pass and have informed that Harvard that I will be joining them.
This because I figured my chances wouldn't be too big. Also, if you plan to pursue a SJD at NYU, you can do so with an LL.M. from any US Law School (altough I assume the better the school, the better the chances); you don't necessarily need an LL.M. from NYU. And I figure they will have extremely good applicants as NYU is the only law school that actually pays it LL.M. students.
By contrast, Harvard, as a general rule, requires its SJD students to attend its LL.M. program first.

But, to make a long story even longer, decisions have not yet been made. But you might hear something shortly.
