NYU Tax LLM - Domestic Candidates


Yea, I wish someone on here would bite the bullet and call them to find out when they are going to start their next waive of decisions now that this seat deposit deadline has passed, ha.

Not to bum everyone out still waiting to hear from NYU, but in my scholarship rejection email NYU said "we received a record number of applications this year to our Graduate Division."

Not surprising with the economy.

Not surprising this year. But it also wouldn't be surprising if that were the case every year, and if they always write that to soften the blow of the rejection.

Monday is April 20th. Perhaps we'll hear something next week.

BUMP for a new week. Any news you hear a/b the process would be appreciated, I'm sure there are quite a few people getting anxious.

The waiting does get old. The people I know who applied last year did not hear until late May. Do we know that the April 15th deadline was for real and not some tax joke?

It's probably not too relevant that there was an April 15th deadline for people who received acceptances before the dealine for applications to be submitted. The actual deadline to apply wasn't until April first and they don't do rolling admissions. It's highly unlikely they filled all the spots prior to the April 1 deadline. What's more likely is that there was a rush of applications right around the time of the deadline and now they're just trying to sort through all of them. Hang tight everyone. No news means you haven't been rejected yet.

April 15 was a deadline for enrolling, but there were later deadlines too for people who were accepted later.

I'm not sure there would be a rush of applications at April 1. I think many people who apply to NYU would also have applied to other schools that have deadlines well before April 1 and do have rolling admissions... so they would likely complete the NYU application at that time, even though NYU doesnt use rolling admissions.

I do suspect there would be a small increase in apps right at the very end, but nothing so large that it should takes several weeks to process those late applications.

My speculation is that those apps that arrived early have already been placed into general groups (Admit, Deny, Wait). Those apps that do arrive early April are sorted and similarly grouped. The Admits and the Denials should be released quickly and those who are borderline/wait-grouped might take a bit longer to compare and make final decisions... or may have to wait for a decision until the Acceptance deadlines pass.

That's just my speculation, but it seems to be supported by what others have heard and what I'm told about past years.

Well, I hope that is correct... I am starting to worry that I might not hear for several weeks (or, gasp, months). I've been accepted to other programs and I'd really like to hear soon so that I may start the process of finding a place to live and preparing for a long-distance move.

I know NYU says decisions will be made by late-June, but by that point I would like to have already moved and be getting settled in (and perhaps working a bit this summer as well)... A late June notification really does not fit that plan very well at all...

What you say about not too many applications near April 1 deadline would be true in general. But I think that this year you had lots of students who were going to go work in big law suddenly get deferral options from their law firm and decided to pursue a tax LL.M. at NYU.

I think there are some students who got firm deferrals and applied to NYU, but certainly not enough to make a difference re: influx of late applicants. Only seven firms are doing year-long deferrals, and not all of those announced before the NYU deadline. Even if 20 people from each of those firms applied right at the deadline, it'd only be 140 applicants. Let's be honest, most people don't consider the prospect of 50-100k debt for a year's worth of tax courses all that attractive.

I received admission to the part-time Tax program today:
only thing is, I meant to apply for the full-time program. I don't know if it was a technical error or stupid mistake on my part when doing the online app. Very frustrated.

I sent in a PDF letter clarifying this: but am just curious whether you have any opinions as to whether there is a separate pool for full-time/part-time, and thus, they would have to review my app again, or whether this would be just an administrative adjustment kind of thing.

when did you apply and when did it go complete? also, what are your stats. i think there is a separate pool for part-time, but i wouldn't think that it would be a different committee.

I also think there is a separate pool for part-time apps. Did you go back into your application on-line to see whether you applied for full or part-time? You can still open up the application after it's been submitted.
