LLM acceptance letters


Degree

Hi, everyone,
I received the rejection letter (dated March 15) from U of Michigan Today. I'm in Japan. I was admitted to Columbia, Penn, Duke, Cornell, Georgetown and USC (I withdrew my positions of those other than Columbia and Georgetown). I'm still waiting for HLS and NYU.

Monday is a holiday in the US; the office will probably be closed.

I don't understand why she said this, plus I had to call 2 times.

Hey,

according to one of my US colleagues Easter Monday is not an official holiday in the US (separation of church/state issues). - So, we should be able to reach the adm. office on Monday

Don't you think it is strange that she told me that we can call.
I think that acceptance letter are already sent long time ago...

Kinlao,

I think that you should stop worrying. The official date for the completion of the applications review is March 25. Therefore, she told you to call the next business day after March 25. I think that all is logical. You will just have to call on Monday and see what happens. Don't try to think for the staff in HLS. I am sure that there is no mystical about their behavior.

Hi i was reading the thread on Northwestern. i got my accpetance letter from NWU for the LLM kellog program within a week of applying in February. I am really confused, I have also received acceptances from NYU, Columbia and Oxford. Do you think it is worth it to spend 70,000 on the course?

About LL.M NWU Kellog, I believe it is the best investment you can make. Do not hesitate in going there.

Hi, meghna

I also got admission to Northwestern's LLM/Kellogg in early March. I have difficulty choosing between NW and NYU. Kellogg has excellent reputation while NYU law school has wonderful reputation too. If you are interested in LLMK mainly because of its business certificate, NYU also provides you with similar opportunities to get an advanced certificate, right? I know Stern does not rank as high as Kellogg, but NYU law's reputation should be able to offset that, does it not?

However, NW LLMK gives you more choice for business school classes, and in fact, LLMK is cheaper because NYU allows you to take fewer credits from Stern than LLMK. Besides, LLMK usually has only less than 20 students enrolled. You can probably get more attention and higher quality educations in LLMK (purely personal opinions only. I welcome any dissenting opinions...).

I prefer NYU also because of its location. Honestly, I am still strrugling between the two....
What is your concern?

Hi, has anybody here applied to Canadian Law schools? I havent heard from any, so far and am getting a little worried. Have received an offer from Northwestern-they need a reply by the 15th. Any thoughts?

Joseph,

Ring any Universities that you would prefer to NW and explain that you have an offer from another University and need to accept or reject that offer by the 15th. Ask whether they can give you an offer in the next week.

If they can't ring NW and ask for an extension on the basis that you are yet to hear back from other universities.

I agree with you peggy. I have got accepted to the Business Program in Stern too.. I was comparing the programs. The LLMK is finance oriented while the Stern Program is M & A oriented.

I am tending to favour NYU becuase as a Law school NYU is better. They have offered me partial scholarship in Stern if I take up their offer.

The other problem is I got an offer from Columbia... So what do you think of Columbia vs NYU?

Vid, I would call or e-mail immediately, do not be scared of any bad impressions, in contrast, it makes you more attractive being accepted in NWU. I applied in Toronto and received admission two weeks later and they gave me time to accept until end of April. So they made their decisions immediately and you seem to be on a standby-list.
Cheers,
Luke

Hi Luke, Thanks
Received an email (last week) from Toronto that they would have an answer in two weeks. Do you suggest I email again?
My application status on the McGill website says "Ready for Review"- does that mean my application file is going through a second round of consideration? Has anyone heard from McGill or Ottawa?
Cheers

Hi Luke,
When was your application received by Toronto? I sent my application pretty close to the deadline, think that might be the reason for the delay?
Thanks

Hi meghna,

Congratulations on your admission to Columbia!
If I were you, honestly, I would choose Columbia over NYU/NW "without second thought".

I (I believe that you too) don't really care about the business study "certificate" but the subtance of knowledge I can get. At Cornell, law students can freely take as many business school(Johnson)'s credits as they want with NO extra charges. If Columbia and NYU adopt the same policy, I will definitely go to Columbia or NYU without enrolling at Stern's program. By doing so, you save tons of money and you can always explain on your resume the business eduations you've recieved. I don't know whether a advanced business "certificate" really makes such a big difference.... If it does, please let me know.

I suggest you to talk with current LLM students and ask them about whether they are free to receive business school's units.

Hi,
has anyone heard from Canadian law schools? Have emailed them, but no reply from them except to say it'll take a few more weeks:(
