NYU - Chances and Choices


Hello everyone,

I have studied Law in Germany and earned my First degree in Germany (Erstes Staatsexamen). My core-field of study was International Trade Law.

My exam results were average due to a busy work schedule besides the exams. And thanks to a very good job offer at that time I have started working in general management after my exams.

After my exams I worked for 3 years as CEO for Europcar in Singapore.

I scored 7.5 at a recently taken the IELTS.

So my first question is: Does anyone have experiences with my chances to get into a LL.M. program with NYU (or even Columbia?)

If yes:
I am planing to get my LL.M. as a qualification to work in the legal sector in a english speaking country (maybe even U.S.)

With my special knowledge during my study in Germany and my work experience in international (trade) law I would be interested to work in this field.

So my second question wold be: Which LL.M. would you recommend. The General one or the specialised one in International Law?

Regards

Actually it might be easier for you to get into Columbia than NYU as the former highly appreciates work experience, while the latter highly appreciates academic records. Apply, you won't lose anything!

I think you are pretty safe with NYU. Columbia could go either way. Can't you apply to both?
