1) As far as I know, there is no designation on your transcript, but I don't think this really matters. If an employer is hiring for a specific area of the law, they will either ask for a transcript or you will bring up your specific classes in your cover letter/interview.
2) The TIP results have come out, but I am only know of a few results other than mine. It seems that all of the things you pointed out are very important, but it is hard to say which is more important than any other. It is worth noting that JD grades are very important, possibly moreso than LLM grades.
Tax 12, thank you for taking questions. I have two of my own.
1) The NYU website suggests that "specializations" or tracks are available within the domestic tax llm program. If you choose a specialization and take the classes associated with the specialization, does that designation appear on your transcript?
2) Have TIP interviews results been sent out? What can you tell us about the types of students who received a significant amount of call backs? Higher grades? Market connections? Prior experience?
