NYU Fall 2015

Take BU. Even if you get into NYU, the changes of getting a scholarship there are very low and the costs of living in NYC are crazy. BU is a great university.

Guys, don't lose hope: I received an offer today and was also informed that I'm being considered to receive a partial scholarship. Good luck to everyone.

Thanks for your Reply! I agree NYC is crazy expensive, but Boston is not too far behind, especially on Rent.

BU has a great program, but NYU is still better.

Since BU gave me a few weeks to decide, I am going to wait until Early April, and if I don't hear from NYU, then I'll take BU.

While I'm aware that NYU has a better ranking overall, I've been accepted into Pepperdine's LLM program in dispute resolution. Is that better than NYU's IBRLA program? Any thoughts?

Pepperdine is a lot lower in the rankings, however, they do have a great Dispute Resolution program. I had a friend who went there, he is a British Barrister, and he loved the program.

Pepperdine is in Cali, which is an attractive destination. Have you been admitted somewhere else yet?

I intend to decline my offer (no scholarship) so that will free up another space, so I wouldn't give up hope if on the wait list.

Looks like a number of people are also declining offers so please keep up the positive attitude! It's totally possible for the people in the wait-list to get a spot.

Waiting list to the tax program.... I m guessing the chances of admission is pretty low considering NYU ranked first in tax.

Anyone got any sugesstions between GULC and NW which I should go? No scholarships. Thanks!

Ahhh finally after waiting since September, I got rejected. I'm kinda glad that the decision came sooner because now I can confirm my acceptance with Cornell. Applied to NYU twice and rejected twice, pretty certain now that I'm not qualified enough. To everyone who got admitted, massive congratulations for you - I believe you guys deserve it. To those who got waitlisted, all my prayers for you. Thank you guys for all the insightful information in this forum.

Goodbye and all the best!

I think It's just an abbreviation of "Middle name".
WL too....

MI normally is middle initial which is the first letter of your middle name. For example if your name is Jose Luiz Rodriguez with Rodriguez being your last name and Jose Luiz being the first and middle names in that order. Then the MI would be "L" in this example.

MI is also the abbreviation for the state of Michigan but obviously that makes no sense from what I believe the context of the notice.

This is just to inform the people that have been waitlisted, I have declined my offer from NYU. So you have one seat that has freed up! All the best!


Hi guys, I also want to free up my seat by declining the offer, but unlike other LL.M. websites, I do not see a specific process to decline the offer for NYU. Did those who declined just did it by sending an e-mail? Thanks for your advice.

Best of luck for those who are waitlisted. As you can see fellow applicants are doing their best to get you some final answers as soon as possible!

Hey everyone, im waitlisted for the traditional llm. Any idea if NYU makes more offers than the number of seats taking into account an average rejection rate? or does it make offers only for the number of seats they have in an llm class. Trying to estimate how much space becomes free.

While I don't know, I would assume the answers is somewhere in the middle of the 2 extremes. No school has 100% acceptance rate (some on Puerto Rico are close) but even Yale is only about 70%.

So I woud assume they send out initial offers with a "conservative" estimate of how many people might actually accept. For example, With Yale they might assume closer to an 80% acceptance rate than their actual 70% rate. That way it is highly likely that they will fill all the open slots in the first wave of best candidates. On the outside chance they don't, they'll go to the waitlist.

One interesting thing about UC Berkeley is that they rank you on the wait list of where you fall on their ranking of you versus other candidates. For example it is 1-25%, 26-50%, etc. So if you are in the second tier or lower for Berkeley I would say just take an offer from the other schools as you have almost no chance of getting in.
