NYU tax program - Domestic Credentials

I just found out last week that I've been accepted to NYU's tax program for 2010-11. Has anyone else out there received scholarship offers yet?

congrats, man!

They even sent out offers during Christmas Holiday!
Did u get a "tuition free" grant - cos it's released so early; and when was your application complete?

Sorry, I think my post was a little misleading. All I have received is the admission letter. It didn't say anything about scholarships. So...I don't know whether that means that I didn't get one or whether I could get one at a later date. Just wondering if anyone admitted has already received scholarship offers.

My application was complete within the first month. I think nyu started accepting applications in sept. And my application was complete before october.

Congrats. I believe you are the first person on this board to get admitted to the NYU. Just to clarify, was it a letter or an email?

vivekbajoria, I am not sure what the criteria is. I'm trying to figure that out. My understanding is that there is a Tax Law Review scholarship that pays 1/2 tuition and a scholarship for those interested in taxation that is in varying amounts (maximum of full tuition).

Congratulations! I haven't heard from them up to the present moment, I'm an applicant to the International Tax program as well.

Are your a domestic or international applicant?

International applicant, accepted to the international tax program. Top 15 percent of my year, took several tax classes.

Someone has already created a general group for NYU's Class of 2011: http://www.lawyrs.net/groups/229/nyu-law-llm-class-of-2011. It would be great to have one specifically for Tax/International Tax LLMs 2009-10 like last year.

Happy new year!

hey,

Wondering does the work experience play a huge role in the application? as I am currently in my final year for Law at king's college London, achieved a high 2.1, and am estimated to rank under the top 12% of my class.

As far as I heard, work experience is not important for international students applying to the ITP.

This seems to be a bit different for domestic applicants:

http://www.lateralattorneyreport.com/2009/02/how-valuable-is-an-llm-in-increasing-marketability/

However, you can conclude from this news item that many domestic students do not have work experience either:
http://blogs.law.nyu.edu/docket/career-services/lunch-with-the-irs-office-of-chief-counsel-for-tax-llm-students-not-eligible-for-the-honors-program/2026/ (special event for students in the tax LL.M. program who do have prior work experience).

Congrats to anuar & melb!!!

When did you get the admissions?
I haven't heard from them until now.

I am not sure whether they have released all of their decisions at the same time.

I sent my application in around Mid October. I am a 3L at a Tier II in Chicago. Top 35% with 1 year experience at a tax law firm in Chicago.


Got into Georgetown back in November and just got into Northwestern. No word on NYU.

I have also searched high and low for what to expect from these programs. It sounds like the OCI at both (NYU and Georgetown) was about 40 employers, and it was pretty tight competition. I do not think they have had interviews yet. Does anyone know anything about this? I have read some forums online, but they are laced with cynicism.

You all have heard that NYU and GULC have TIP on 02/26 while BU, UF and NU have TARE on 02/25. Both recruiting events take place in DC. To be precise, TIP has 31 employers that came for OCI and 12 employers requested resume collection only. TARE has 14 employers. However, nobody seems to mention that roughly 45 percent of employers from TIP do participate in TARE, meaning that there are between 450 to 600 students competing for those 14 or so job openings.
In reply to previous post about tight competition, we finished bidding for interviews last week so we should find out who got lucky sometime during the second week of February.
Graduating in May and will be moving back into my parents basement as there are no real job prospects for graduating tax LL.M. students. Should have taken MCAT
