NYU LLM after UK LLB


lloydy

Hey guys, I'm currently studying at Warwick University in the UK and I'm thinking of applying to the Corporation Law LLM at NYU.

The question is: how hard is it to get in? I know they usually have 2000-2500 applicants for 400 places in total for the LLM program but what kind of UK grades will they be looking at? Also what kind of extra curriculars?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm in a very similar situation. I just graduated from Queen Mary (English and European Law) with a high 2.1 (two marks off a First) and I'm spending the next year trying to get experience/money and applying to start in 2013. I have no idea where my grades put me in terms of class rank as UK universities don't seem to do this. But I think around 5% of law students get First class, so a high 2.1 should put someone in or around the top 10%. Will you be applying as soon as you graduate, and if so what kind of extra-curriculars have you done/are planning to do?

If I were you I'd definitely get some corporate law experience to strengthen the application. However, aside from that you'll need others as well (in terms of extracurriculars)

Do admissions requirements vary depending on the programme you apply to? The stats say they take around 450 LLM students each year, of which around 60 are on the International Legal studies course. Are the specialized courses harder to get into than the traditional LLM?

Specialized is ALWAYS more difficult than general :)

Unless you have something to pull you off the crowd, you won't get in. Good grades, good references, some experience here and there - everyone has that.

Haha that's encouraging ;)

There were three or four modules in the International programme that I was interested in, but I guess I'll stick to applying for the Traditional and hope my rank, references, work experience (hopefully) give me a chance.

Thanks,

I'm in a very similar situation as you. I graduated last year with a good 2.1 and I've been getting some work experience in a high street london firm since November. I'm not quite sure what a good 2.1 will be in American GPA but I got my University to send my transcript to LSAC who will convert this. My area of interest is International law and I have an article published by my old university on international economic law. Also, I took part in some community work a few months ago and a very talented athlete. What are my chances of getting into NYU, Cornell, vanderblit or Georgetown?
