NYU LLM 2014


GTNYU
Anyone on the waitlist heard anything recently, especially domestic tax applicants? I haven't heard anything but on the application status tracker the dates that my letters of recommendation were received were recently updated to 6/2/14. Not sure what that means. That same day LSAC got my final transcript, which I assume was forwarded to NYU so maybe that has something to do with it.

Just got an email notifying me that I've been put on the wait list for domestic tax. I'm ambivalent about the wait list but I'm not very optimistic from here on out. Good luck to all.


Hi GTNYU, are you going to wait for NYU or accept an offer from Georgetown?

As an LL.M. applicant, I have been made to look foolish by being rejected. I am posting my experiences to warn future applicants of NYU Law.

On March 14, I received an email from the Graduate Admissions stating that the Admissions Committee was impressed with my academic and professional credentials, but found that my English language test score was below the NYU minimum requirement. The Committee invited me to submit an updated score report so that it would reconsider my application. I therefore immediately signed up for several language tests. After intensive preparation, I was very pleased to achieve and submit a test score exceeding the minimum requirement. On May 22, I was informed that the Committee was unable to offer me admission.

I acknowledge that the Committee did not expressly guarantee admission upon receipt of an updated score report. But one could reasonably expect that if the Committee encourages an applicant in March to retake a language test involving a stressful and expensive process, an offer of admission would be issued upon receipt of a high test score. Anything else would be to make a mockery of an applicant who has taken significant steps to meet the Committees request. Because of the unfair treatment that I have received by the Committee, I will not reapply to NYU Law next year.

For future LL.M. applicants: If you are in the same situation as I was, then be aware that submitting a test score exceeding the minimum requirement will not secure you a place on the LL.M. Program. More important, do not decline your offers from other law schools (which I unfortunately did because of my reasonable expectation of admission).

That's brutal and I can imagine your disappointment. Especially when you did everything they asked of you! I had a similar experience with another law school (not NYU) when applying for my JD. One of my referees had a major health crisis while traveling out of the country. He missed a deadline with the letter and my first choice school was not understanding. They refused to consider my application or refund the application fee. To this day, I am still offended by their behaviour. But, in the end, it all worked out and I was really happy at my law school. Stay strong!
