NYU LLM 2016-2017


taxgirl37

Hi guys --

I am going crazy trying to figure out whether I have a shot at NYU. Just got admitted to Northwestern and still waiting to hear back from Georgetown and NYU. Any insight any of you have would be much appreciated.

My stats are: George Washington Law, graduating this May, 3.337 GPA; Tax GPA 3.0. I received a B in both tax classes that I took. I was a summer associate at a small boutique firm that focused on white collar crime defense and corporate tax issues. I was also a teaching assistant for the law school's law & accounting class.

Thank you in advance!

I was just accepted to NYU! My stats are: Boston University School of Law Class of 2014, 3.73 GPA (Magna Cum Laude), Tax GPA 3.5, I am a member of the New York Bar and I have spent the time since graduation working for a large firm in Canada. I was an note editor on a secondary journal. Going to NYU because I like Tax and want to move back to the US East Coast.

Has anyone except for tax program admitted so far?


Hi - nobody has posted on here at least. NYU states that decisions regarding the General LLM will be released in March. Hope that helps!

Hi TrumpsStylist,
Congraduations on your NYU acceptance.
I am a foreign trained lawyer (civil law) with an immigration status in Canada and therefore I found your post above extremely interesting. I would appreciate if you can share briefly whether you have been working in Canada after graduation as a US-qualified attorney or as a Canadian lawyer (admitted to a bar in one of the provinces as such)? If you do not mind me asking. You did not have Canadian-american joint JD and/or any specialization LLM by any chance, did you?
I will be doing my LLM in the US this Fall and sit for the NY bar next year but despite all my efforts invested in my Canadian immigration I did not even think for a second until today that a Canadian employer would be interested in a US qualified lawyer these days, especially a large law firm. May be I am being too negative here. I would really appreciate if you share your opinion.

TrumpsStylist , thanks again for sharing.
Best of luck with your NYU LLM!
I will be doing LLM in Tax Law as well this year. Technically I do not need any job permits in Canada either, so may be a US tax LLM will have some weight there and even become a good reason for me to finally settle in Canada after graduation, who knows. Time will tell.

I guess they started to send decisions on March 2 last year. I hope soon then.

I feel so behind the curve right now! Application deadline is April 1st and I just barely decided to go for it. I have everything on my application set, I'm just waiting for my transcripts to get sent to LSAC.

Does anyone have a realistic idea of how long it takes for LSAC to process a transcript once its received?

Also, I attended a law school that did not have a GPA or class rank, how did you all go about requesting a statement to that end from your university?

Finally, under the Employment tab of the NYU application, did you all just essentially list all your employers as reflected in your resume? The application is a little unclear on that process.

Good luck to all!

Mine too (not sure when exactly though, I try not to check it too often...). Is it the same with everyone?
