Looks like there is nothing yet for the ILS people. Any updates for that program?

Is "Above Average" good?


Obviously good enough :) "Superior" is a top grade, followed by "Above Avearage"..."Average"...and then there is one more level (lowest), probably Below Average (I'm not sure how is it named). However, I believe that NYU also has it own grading system (probably based on their past experievve with students from various univeristies).


Completely agree with that, my law school report indicates "Above Average" and I managed to secure a spot for the Traditional LLM program.

I have "Superior" in both my J.D equivalent (abogada) and in my M.A but they still haven't come back to me. There are other things to take into account I believe.

I am sure they look at all of the submitted documents, the Law School Reports, CV/Resume, Personal Statement and LoRs, holistically before making any admissions decision.

Nonetheless, the indication that we have on this forum seems to suggest that for the Law School Report portion, an "Above Average" rating should be enough to qualify an applicant for the academic part of the admissions assessment.

That happened to me as well, I think it means wait list but I'll be happy to hear any other opinions.

Since LSAC modified their website I saw current decision and decision date blank, does anybody else has the same or have this dates on their pages? I thought it was because of the recent changes.

Anyone from Legal Theory?


I applied to the Legal Theory Program too. Still no news. I was cheeking their web page and they say that admission decisions are gonna be release mid March. Most of the admitted people have no scholarship, so I imagine that if we applied to financial aid we just have to wait maybe one week more. Good luck

Yeah, the requirements list and the decision date/status has always been blank for me, ever since I logged in for the first time. But I think the time is running out as we are into Day 8 since the first decisions were made.
