Hi!

At the LLM site its said that they will be making decisions regarding domestics students by July, and that's a lot of time!

Decisions on LL.M. applicants with foreign education credentials whose files are not complete by January 1, all LL.M. applicants with domestic credentials, and all J.S.D. applicants will be made by early July.

Wow. July, huh? I am a domestic applicant and received an email in February that said I would receive word by April 1. Still waiting. Already accepted my LSE offer, though, so just waiting out of curiousity. Still ticks me off that I haven't heard yet, given the email they sent me.

Hi! I'm a domestic JD. I've only applied to NYU. I've applied to the LLM in Trade Regulation (IP concentration).

I mailed my application around January, and received an email from them Feb. 14 saying my file was complete and I"d receive a decision by April 1.

I called them last week on Monday, they said my app was complete but they didn't know why a decision hadn't been made. They said it could be because they were busy doing the foreign LLM decisions because those students would have to deal with getting visas.

They said a decision on my application should be made during the week and they'd send a decision ASAP. By Friday I hadn't gotten anything so I called again (on Friday) and they gave me the same answer, and said I should get a decision this week sometime.

So now it's Wed April 13 and I haven't gotten anything at all.

I know on the website it says that domestic applicants will get decisions by July, but for those of us that applied pretty early should get decisions soon I would think. Especially because some of us have received emails stating we'd get a decision by April 1.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi IPFORME,

Would you happen to know the admissions statistics? Have you heard how many Trade Regulation LLM's NYU accepts per year and how many students apply each year?

I sent in my application mid March, yet my letters of recommendations did not all get to NYU until April 1st. I called NYU a few days ago and they told me that they have already made a decision on mine, and I should recieve a letter next week. I think that is relatively a quick turnaround... so, quick, I am almost fearing that it will be a negative decision. I might be wrong, but I'm guessing that domestic LLMs get acceptances up until July... and perhaps those they definately don't want, they will reject immediately.... and perhaps those who are being thoroughly considered will get offers throughout the months. We'll see what happens....

Good luck.

Hi MJ!

I don't know any statistics about how big the Trade Regulation program is, how many apply, how many are admitted, etc. I have looked very hard and haven't been able to find any of that helpful info.

But...I just got my admittance packet today! It was dated April 8 (today is April 13). It includes some paperwork, a couple CDs, and it says I have to submit a $500 deposit by May 6 (must be received by their office by May 6).

There's no mention of financial aid, loans, etc. But it lists tuition as$37,400 and total expenses as $59,900. Ouch! Did you apply for financial aid seperately? I didn't do that and now I'm wondering if I can even get federal loans for this upcoming year....I know in undergrad and law school there were seperate financial aid applications and I always filled out the FAFSA by March 1 or something....but I didn't do that this year.

I am super excited to have gotten in, but it's a ton of money to borrow considering I'm $150,000 in loan debt from law school already. So I may have to defer this year and figure out a way to go next year by working 3 jobs and applying for little known scholarships or something.

Good luck to you....what concentration did you apply to?

Hi IPFORME,
Congratulations on your acceptance! To answer your question, I applied to the Anti-Trust/Competition Policy focus. I'm not sure if that is a concentration heavily sought after by applicants. I applied for the FAFSA and designated NYU. I think you can still submit the FAFSA. Need Access was due March 1st, but I think you still have some time to submit your FAFSA... If anything, you probably could get up to $18,000 of federal loans (assuming you are a domestic student). Could you please answer any of the following questions?
1. Did your acceptance letter say there is a deferment option? If so, up to how long can you defer?
2. Would you mind sharing what law school you went to, your approx. rank (10%, 50%,etc.), and your honors, extracurricular activities? Also your work experience...
3. What other LLM programs have you heard from?

Sorry for all the questions, and I understand if you choose not to disclose... I just want to know so I can "gage" my chances...

Thanks and Congrats

I went to a school that is ranked #20 in this year's US News and World Reports....was ranked around #24 last year. It has a very good IP program.

In law school I did 2 academic concentrations -- 1) IP Law and 2) Litigation. They each required a certain amount of specified classes and a long research paper. As far as grades I was a little below the top 1/3 in my class. I did earn honors in my IP concentration with a 3.85 GPA.

As far as work experience, worked in the Intellectual Property Dept. of a major movie studio/entertainment company for a summer during law school. I'm also admitted to practice in my state and I've been working on long term temporary projects as a lawyer since I've graduated (I graduated in May 2004).

I feel totally stupid that I missed the Need Access deadline -- what type of aid can you get (potentially) by filling out that form? I'm guessing I can still borrow the $18,500 in stafford loans but of course I'd like to be considered for anything else. My last year of law school I got a Perkins loan, which would help as well. I guess I should talk to financial aid!

PS--

I forgot to answer these questions.

Deferring: It looks like you can defer but you still must submit the $500 deposit to hold a space in the class. It says NYU generally allows deferrals for 1 year. After 1 year if you do not enroll you have to re-apply.

Other LLMs: I didn't apply anywhere except NYU. I am not sure if it will be feasible for me to go still (because I'm in debt to my eyeballs and don't have family support like to co-sign for loans, plus moving to NY would be expensive in itself)....and so I knew that if I was actually going to jump through the hoops its going to take to attend, I only wanted to go to the best program (which I think NYU is).

Very impressive IPFORME,
Sorry to hear about the financial situation, that could be a tough decision. However, don't worry, I'm sure you'll be able to eventually pay it off. IP law is one of the most financially rewarding (I'm sure you know that already). I'm not sure, and you should talk to financial aid, but Need Access is generally for university grants. However, I don't think NYU gives any grants for financial need. A friend of mine got a $10K merit based grant from NYU's Tax program, but I don't recall him filling out the need access. Hmmm, I guess I should find out because I might be put in the same situation.

Good Luck.
