LLM Admission Chances


Hi all,

I am a rising 3L at a T25 JD program considering an LL.M in tax. I was wondering if any current or former LL.M's could provide some insight on my chances of admission/possibility of scholarships at NYU or Georgetown's tax LL.M programs. A couple of relevant points:

- Class rank: right around top 10% (maybe slightly above or below - rankings have not yet been released)

- Tax courses: school only offers a few, but I earned an A in baby-tax and an A- in corporate. I'll be taking partnership (only other tax class offered) in the spring.

- Tax experience: doing some tax work this summer focusing on corporate/partnership tax, will be externing with IRS in the fall, wrote journal (I'm on my school's law review) comment on a tax issue.

- debt: none leaving law school, but would have to take on at least tuition debt for an LL.M (CoL would be either fully covered (if in D.C.) or at least partially covered (if in NYC).

- goals - ideally would like to end up in D.C., but would be open to NYC for a brief (3 years max). Biglaw would be number one preference, but would happy at Big4 in the DC area as well.

I'd be interested in hearing advice based on the above, as well as possibilities of admission with scholarship at either NYU or GT.

Thanks.
