NYU Domestic Tax Decisions


DaddyLLM

Its a bit difficult to extract from the Official NYU Decision thread whether domestic tax llm candidates have received their decisions, so figured I start a separate thread.

I've been complete since late January and have not heard anything from NYU. Has anybody in the domestic tax llm program received their rejection or acceptance yet? Still waiting?

Hi, I was admitted to the domestic tax program at NYU. I had until April 15 to send in my decision, but I already accepted. Given the April 15 date, however, I believe decisions are still being made and there will be a flurry of decisions immediately after April 15.

BTW, I've noticed about 3 other people have heard from NYU, including 1 who received a scholarship. You may want to check the UF tax discussion board b/c it is all about domestic tax llm and many of the peole applied to NYU as well.

I did get in Florida and I seem to be one of the few that have heard, although its quite the opposite with NYU. I did see that thread. Congratulations on getting accepted to NYU. Did you apply for Florida too?

Congratulations on getting accepted to Florida! I've noticed that a few admitted to NYU are still waiting to hear from Florida (and have indicated that Florida is their first choice).

I was going to apply to Florida but I heard back from NYU and Georgetown before I got around to Florida's application. Once I realized how hard it was going to be to decide between the schools, I decided not to apply to Florida. The decision was hard enough without throwing a third school into the mix!

Did you just apply to NYU and Florida or did you also apply to Georgetown?

My application was complete in the middle of December and I was admitted in the middle of January. Also I graduated from law school several years ago, so I did not have any additional grades that they were waiting on.

I applied to NYU, UF, GULC Tax LLMs & Miami's Estate Planning LLM. I did get in Miami, too, but their deadline was too short for me to make an informed decision. Have not heard from either NYU or GULC.

Interesting thing about UF is that I qualify for in-state tuition thru the Academic Common Market since there are no LLM tax programs in my area and our states have reciprocity. Plus apartments in Gainesville rent for $600 range. So it would be much less expensive for me and they were rated #2 in 2012 rankings.

Still would be nice to have the choice.

I've been accepted at NYU, GULC, and UF. I had sent my deposit to Georgetown last week prior to hearing from UF. However, when I heard from UF I found out that I also qualify for the Academic Common Market. That would obviously make a huge difference. I'll be flying down to Gainesville next weekend to visit.

I visited several of the LLM programs I had been admitted to and ended up choosing Miami's Estate Planning LLM. However, I was just accepted to NYU's Tax LLM. Anyone have any pros or cons they think I should consider?

Miami's Estate Planning LLM is extremely well regarded. But you may want to consider whether (1) estate planning is what you want to do, (2) you plan on staying in Florida or the South, and/or (3) there are any other special considerations involved (e.g., family, you've always wanted to spend some time in Miami, certain reknown professors, networking opportunities, etc...) that would make Miami a better choice for you. Otherwise, I think it would be difficult to rationalize choosing Miami over NYU.

Congratulations! Did you receive a scholarship as well (I've been trying to figure out if all the domestic tax scholarships have been awarded yet or not)? Also, what are your thoughts about where to live? Student housing? If so, Mercer or D'Agostino?

I didn't receive any scholarship (but I didn't apply to any either?) I don't know if they hand out merit scholarships without applying to them, do they? As for housing, I already live in the city, so I won't be doing student housing. Honestly, I suggest you do the same, its much more convenient to live off campus, although it might take a few days to find a good apartment. Student housing tends to be overpriced for nothing.

I can't do student housing because I have a dog. I am trying to focus my search on a neighborhood and I'm thinking of Astoria. For those familiar with the city - any thoughts. My main goal is to find a 1 bedroom under $2k.

Also I believe every applicant is considered for merit scholarships automatically.

Wow that is a fast turn around for GULC! Were you awarded a scholarship? I'm surprised at such a short deadline otherwise.

I believe it is. Let me know if you face any difficulties.
