For those who were waitlisted, I will decline NYU's offer (Traditional LLM).
I decided to attend Duke.
Good luck!

I was waitlisted for my JD program and submitted a statement of continued interest telling the school that I was still VERY interested in attending and stating how the school was my first and only choice for continuing my education. Good luck!

Hello all!

Regarding this LLM program in NYU..Im a lawstudent from Sweden and is finishing my exams now in june and thinking of getting a master in US (by going a LLM program). I know its to late to apply for this fall.
I have a lot of questins regarding the process, but what I really would like to know is how you all finance this education? It is quite expensive.

Does anybody know how NYU operates the wait list? For example, will they accept somebody applying for LLM in Legal Theory if the vacancy was caused by a successful applicant who declined an offer for LLM in Legal Theory? Or can an applicant for LLM in Environmental Law fill that vacancy?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Has anyone heard anything from NYU's domestic tax program? I applied back in November, and still haven't heard anything. I haven't been rejected or put on the waiting list. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but the waiting is driving me crazy! Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Anybody interested in sharing an apartment for the Housing?
I have no preference btw Mercer and D'Agostino, although I see the latter is cheaper which in my case is an important issue.
anyone interested, please let me know!

I'm in the same spot. I went complete in November as well. I emailed NYU a few weeks ago to push them along and all I got in response was "we'll let you know sometime before the end of June."

I am sorry to hear that. I am domestic tax as well and got admitted in March. I think if you did not hear anything by now, it is very likely that you will in the group of "waitlist", regardless whether you have officially been put into that category. The rationale behind this is that NYU probably has been waiting for all the deposit and communications for the admitted students to get a sense what the entering class will look like.
But by the end of June is a bit crazy. I think they were just risk-averse. (i.e: by telling you a really late deadline so you would not bother them until then) It is likely they will give you a decision earlier than June.
Anyways, I dont know whether this could make you feel better: another friend of mine got waitlisted from another school ( not Big 3 but within Top7 tax program) say he/she will hear from that school by August. ( this is indeed insane!!!!!!!!!!!)

The LLM in tax at NYU is the most popular and valuable LLM for domestic applicants... even above HLS, YLS and so on... You only need to see the app traker of domestic applicants and you will discover that at least 80% of them have applied to NYU tax LLM...
NYU is unmattched in Tax law. However, I am not a tax lawyer so all I know comes from what others say...
To which program have you been admitted?? I have enrolled in the International Business Regulation, Litigation and arbitration program.


According to US News & World Report, the rankings for Tax LL.M. are:
#1 NYU
#2 Georgetown
#3 Univ of Florida

LL.M. in Taxation is extremely valuable in US. Students who can get into any of the top 3 tend to get into all of them (or at least 2 of 3). The 3 schools give very good variety--NYU consistently is the top ranked. Georgetown is in DC, 1 block from US Tax Court, near Justice Dept, etc., and DC arguably is a more liveable city than NY. And Univ of Fla has warm weather and is very inexpensive, compared to the others.

Students like to covet an acceptance to NYU Tax LLM but many decline NYU to go to Georgetown or UF instead. So I wouldn't agree that "NYU isthe most popular and valuable LLM for domestic applicants," but I would agree that it, along with Georgetown and UF are much more valuable than Harvard or Yale.

Hey CSJTax,

Where did you get that ranking? According to what I found, Florida has moved ahead of Georgetown for the past two years to the #2 position.

Thanks

Thanks totebags--You are right--I am quoting the latest 2014 rankings. I should have included the link. BTW, if you follow the link, the longer chart at the top is for J.D. programs; scroll down a little to a much shorter chart for LL.M. programs (Graduate Tax Programs). Harvard and Yale are not even listed.

Has anyone heard anything from NYU's domestic tax program? I applied back in November, and still haven't heard anything. I haven't been rejected or put on the waiting list. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but the waiting is driving me crazy! Any info would be greatly appreciated!


I'm in the same spot. I went complete in November as well. I emailed NYU a few weeks ago to push them along and all I got in response was "we'll let you know sometime before the end of June."


There was a deposit due on April 15, so perhaps you will hear something soon (if you haven't already). I applied at the beginning of March and was accepted the last week of March.

Is there a Facebook group for Domestic Tax LLMs or shall I just going the general NYU LLM group?
