Anyone get admitted to the domestic tax program? If you did, could you post your stats?

For example, I applied 2/1, complete on 2/12. T1 school, cumulative over a 3.5, exceptional tax law grades, tons of extra stuff

Hey, I was admitted to the ILS program as well. Does somebody know when financial aid decisions will be released?

I sent them an email asking these questions:

"Will the financial aid decision be included in my offer letter? If not, when should I expect action on my scholarship application? Will I receive notification if I do not receive any financial aid?

This is the reply I got:

"All admitted students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships; no additional action is required. We will contact you as soon as a financial aid decision is made at which time we will also provide your enrollment deadline."

Not very helpful haha.

I have a question about the Hauser scholarship. We were supposed to write on a current legal problem or legal dilemma faced by a country, region or the entire world. I'm just wondering if a topic on a legal issue faced by practitioners in a very specific practice area (e.g.: securities regulation or private equity) would be considered significant enough to qualify as a legal problem faced by a country? It seems as if a constitutional law or human rights related topic would be large enough to be considered as a "legal issue" facing a "country, region or world". I'm also afraid if the Admissions Committee would be biased against essays that detail problems faced by practitioners in areas such as private equity, simply because it wouldn't seem significant enough to someone sitting in New York (even if it might be a significant problem faced by practitioners in that area of law, in that country).

What are your thoughts on this?

I think the question is not so much what issue we put in the essay but whether we were able to package that issue as one that is faced by a country, a region or the world. So, if you were able to highlight whatever issue you think exists in the practice of securities regulation as one that rises to the level of, at the least, a country-wide issue, then I think that you were able to comply with the essay requirement.

Frankly, though, we'll know if any of our essays is actually good enough to merit the Hauser Global Scholarship only if we get selected for it, so there's not much benefit for us to second-guess our submissions at this point. ;-)

Hello! I've only seen two candidates here who claim they were already admitted to the IBRLA program. Has anyone else been admitted to this program?

I'm a little worried because I haven't heard anything by now and it's almost March.
