Hello all,

I wanted to start the discussion on the NYU@NUS 2013-2014 programme. We are fast approaching the application stage for the programme and I thought we could discuss aspects related to the application process, scholarships, future prospects etc. through this thread.

So all those who are interested, please go ahead and contribute to this thread.

Hi,
I have decided to apply for the NYU@NUS 2013-2014 and am preparing what I can before the application opens. I plan to finish my application with all the materials needed by the end of September, hoping to get my decision in the early stages of their making admission offers :)
sss5, will you be applying to the program? Where are you from?

Hi Vigdissig,

Glad to see a first reply on this thread. I am from India, and would also be trying to finish up my application formalities at the earliest.

Have you registered for the LSAC?

Is it absolutely essential to register with the LSAC or can you upload your supporting documents/mail them whenever you're submitting the application? It'd be great if someone could clarify this!

I've registered for LSAC and my transcripts have already been sent to them and evaluated. I hope to have my letters of recommendation sent to LSAC in the next couple of weeks and have a TOEFL scheduled for Sept. 21. Have you registered for LSAC? I find it very convenient and easy to use, their instructions are quite good.

@medhasriv, it's necessary unless you request a special waiver. However I'm not sure if that's possible if you are from a law school outside the US: "All prospective students applying are required to use the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) LL.M. Credential Assembly Service, which includes the NYU Law Electronic Application, the Document Assembly Service, and the International Transcript and Authentication Service (if applicable)". I registered for the International Transcript and Authentication Service seeing as I am from Iceland. Have you read the 2013-2014 application instructions? I found them to be quite helpful and I'm willing to try to answer any other questions you might have :) You can find the instructions here:

Hey Medhasriv,

Your name sounds Indian, or atleast, that's a plausible guess :-).

Yes. It is necessary to register with the LSAC. However, you can petition for a waiver of the LSAC if you find that you aren't going to apply to many law schools and you've narrowed down your scope.

The application instructions are clear. However, you could send in all your questions and clarifications to the email
ID mentioned in the instructions file for further clarifications.

@vigdissig, Really fast work. Excellent. I have a lot of catching up to do.

Any of you have any ideas regarding the scope of post llm job opportunities in singapore if we adopt this programme?
And we have to apply directly to the NYU through LSAC for this particular course? I am confused as to where to start from exactly.

The details regarding admission procedure are available above.

With regards job opportunities, the question can be best answered by current students of the program. You could post the question to the previous batch, and they would tell you.

Hi,

I am also in the process of applying for NYU@NUS 2013-2014. I have registered with LSAC, however their website states that "applicants should register four to six weeks before their first application deadline". Does this mean that in addition to paying the LSAC fee, you also have to submit all documents 4-6 weeks prior to the 1st deadline?

In sort of clarification will be most helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

In regard to LSAC transcript evaluation, is it necessary for applicants applying to NYU? I am a bit concern about the this evaluation as I heard a 2.1 degree classification (Which is a B) is graded between 2.7-3.0 GPA which is relatively low.
