Northwestern Admissions


LLM CAz

Hi, I also received an admission offer from Northwestern (KLLM program). However, I am not too sure about its tuition, as it is extremely high - $62,000 !! Do you guys know if there is any opportunity to receive financial aid in this program? Does it worth the high price?

I was also admitted to Uchicago and not too sure which to choose. what do you think about these two schools?


They explicitly state that there are no financial aid for LLMK program. Uchicago??!!! That's awsome!!


They do have financial aid for the LLMK program, but I believe that they do not offer any fellowship for this program...

Hi guys - Congrats to those that have had some options at hand and best luck to those still waiting..
i was just admitted to the LLMK program. While feeling the excitement, i start to become really concerned about the high tuition associated with it.. i may wish to be certain if the program is worth of the investment before i have to make up my mind to take or leave it by March.. i have read some of the previous posts but would still like to solicit more of your opinions on the quality and the prospect of the program... anybody with direct or indirect knowledge or informaiton other than those published on NWU website is welcome to shed some lights on this topic..
I do have a few other LLM options vs. this LLMK program. but am also interested in taking some courses on management considering this is likely to be my last opportunity going back on campus.. however, i expect my future career after the school be still focusing on the legal aspect....
Any suggestion will be highly appreciated!


I'm a Korean candidate accepted to LLMK as well and understand your concern. I've had the pleasure to meet one of the program's graduate who jumped to a M&A team at the largest IB in Korea upon completing the LLMK program. I guess your decision will be conditioned upon what kind of career perspective you have. I also got admission from UPenn but my acceptance to the Wharton Business & Law Program is pending. Although many here say that LLMK is a better program compared to the Wharton Program, I'm still weighing the two, provided that I get accepted to the Wharton Program. I hope this helps. BTW, can I ask where you are from?


Bcool - thanks for sharing the thoughts. am from china. i would also hope the Kellogg experiece would to some extent broaden the career perspective. i have been working with the law firms so far but would also wish to take this opportunity to make a switch to a pe fund or sth. i didnt apply to the upenn/wharton program but am still waiting for response for a couple of other schools.

Fellows, although I'm not interested in focusing on corporate or business law, I can tell you that both Kellogg LL.M and Wharton LL.M are two terrific programs. I can honestly tell you that, in your shoes, I'd rather choose to attend one of the afore-mentioned programs over a general LL.M at Harvard or Columbia. Indeed, you'll be able to attend courses from two different schools, each one ranked among top 10 (either law or business). I really think a program like these worth its price, even though very expensive...

I might have already posted this, but I got into the LLM in tax at NU on February 12th, 6 days after my application was "complete."

I have yet to hear from UF, NYU, GULC, BU, and Miami.

For all I know, BU and Miami are going to wait until everyone gets rejected from the rest of the schools before they start making decisions. Has anyone heard from these schools? Have you decided on any particular school, and why?

Im in UF, GULC and Northwestern. I dicided for NU (gral LLM) over UF simply because its a better univ. Though GULC has also strong academics I prefer Chicago for living.

Bcool - its been a while and i dont seem to have heard any other candidates going to the LLM/K program this year. how is it going at your side? have you got any news from upenn? and still have made up your mind which school to go?

Well... so far... I told WashU, Cornell and USC that I will not be able to accept their offer. I have yet to decide between LLM/Kellogg and UPenn LLM. As for the Wharton Program, they told me that all decisions would be released on April 1st. When will this all end... (sigh...)

Can anyone who applied to the Tax LLM can tell me how long did it take to obtain a password to check the status?

I could only submit a paper application. I did it on Feb 9, and they still have not processed my app, requested my LSAC report or given me a password for the status check.

They told me on the 17th that they would do it but I should have patience. How long does this usually take?

Thanks!

Well, the good news is that I was just told by my firm that they would be sponsoring my contemplated education in the US. This is most honorable considering the world-wide econimic crisis. While the choice of program is still at my discretion, I would probably have to seriously think about Penn, taking the advice from a couple of directors at my firm, a Wharton graduate and a Penn Law LL.M. graduate. There are no LLM/K graduates at my firm.
Good luck for everyone!

Bcool - good for you to get sponsorship for your study especially in view of the current global economic hardship. is it conditioned upon ur continued service for the firm aftr u graduate? may i ask what kinda firm u r working with? law firm or accounting firm? coz the other day u mentioned u hav a CPA sth. but in any event i think its a good thing u dont have to worry abt the expenses now. congrat! as for schools, i think u cant go wrong by choosing either way.
apparently its the same case in china that penn law and wharton have bigger alumni network compared with nu and especially the llm/k program. i had the opportunities communicating to a few of the current llm/k students, all of them are very happy with what they have been learning and experiencing, in particular with respect to kellogg part. this is also helping me decide to go for the llm/k program.

Thank you. Yes I would probably have to come back to my company but this is not a concern for me in the least at this point.
Actually, I'm working in a chemical corporation, an affiliate of one of the conglomerates in Korea as an in-house legal advisor and negotiation specialist. I am not a CPA. I am shooting to become a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
To tell you the truth, my heart was growing more towards the LLMK program if it wasn't for the sudden sponsorship offer from my firm, directors of which include Wharton/Penn Law graduates.
Nevertheless, my firm is more involved in the B2B industry and since Kellogg is strong in Marketing whereas Wharton is in Finance, I think my acceptance to the Wharton Certificate Program, which is pending, would be a good fit for me.

Dear Judepark,

I think we both know by now that both LLMK and Wharton Certificate Program are not MBA. However, do you know if the LLMK graduates are able to enjoy the Kellogg alumni network as well as NU Law alumni network?
As for the Wharton Program, I heard from one of its graduates that the Wharton Cert. Program would only be able to enjoy the network of Penn Law alumni.

Bcool - thanks for explaining everything to me. in your case, i think the penn/wharton program will indeed fit you better given the strong alumni network around you in your corporation. as to your question, i have the perception that the LLMK grads do not have access to the Kellogg alumni resources, just like the Penn/wharton program, although i dont find exact language on NU's website saying this. but i do find, on their website, that at least LLMK grads can't take advantage of the Kellogg career information.

Well it is a difficult question... In my case i will complete my 3 years work ex. criterion by July,2009.. So it may be difficult for me to choose Upenn as i am not sure to get admission in Wharton's Business and law certificate program so i'll prefer KLLM... On the other hand i am waiting to hear from NYU/CLS...
