I applied for the traditional LLM and i just got a parcel from NYU including my admission letter on 4th Feb. I applied under the NUS/NYU joint LLM programme (to do my LLM at NYU) so that might have affected things since all of us received our parcels on the same day.

Have any of those who got offers gotten scholarships, either tax law review or any of the others?

Nothing mentioned about scholarships in the e-mail. I haven't received my packet in the mail.

Did anyone of you already ask for an expedite decision (regarding traditional LL.M.)? I am thinking of it because I have two deadlines of other schools (before the expected decision-date of NYU).

Yes I did, "They cannot guarantee that the Committee will reach a decision in February or early March"

Not at all. It seems as they do not bother at all.

The more I read about them all the more I get that LLM's are just cash cows. If one guy is not available the other one will substitute him...

Well, I opted for the Candidate Referral Service in LSAC. That means I have received about twenty or thirty e-mails from different law schools in the US, offering me an application to their LLM selection "free of charge". The law schools that sent me these e-mails? Brooklyn, Hamline, Case Western (numerous times), Loyola, Hawaii, Indiana, California Western, Ohio State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, UPenn, William Mitchell, Tulane, Hofstra, Wake Forest and even Vanderbilt.

Meanwhile, I chose to apply for NYU and Harvard, solely for these two (personal and professional preference). I didn't receive e-mails from NYU or from Harvard inviting me to join their prestigious programs. Nor did I receive e-mails from Yale, Columbia, Stanford, UChicago... None of those. And my best guess is that they don't need to send any e-mails, since qualified (and overqualified) candidates apply for their LLM programmes every single year.

So I think that the "uninterested" approach by the people at NYU, while a little disheartening to us, is somewhat reasonable. When someone calls NYU requesting a more "expedite" evaluation, they don't feel any need whatsoever to "expedite" anything - basically, they know that other candidates are willing to wait. I'm one of them.

But at the same time, I'm in the same boat. The wait is slowly but surely threatening my sanity. (:

according to my lsac account nyu received my report on jan 31st. however it says on my nyu account that they haven't received my letters of recommendation yet. i wrote them an e-mail and they relplied that they have lots of applications to review so it might take some time to update my account.

@-sparkle-
I would try to relax if I were you. According to my page on the Admissions section of NYU, my application was completed (therefore, with the letters of recommendation) on December 21st. Yours is still not complete and we're in February 13th.

My results will probably come by early to mid-March. Yours may take even longer, I'm afraid.

I also found out about admission (Tax program) yesterday via email. I was surprised since I'd submitted my complete application on the later side (2/1).
