Opinions on admission chances


JA2121

Hello all,

I am planning to apply to US LLMs starting in fall 2022. I would say that I have a good resume, having graduated from both my Bachelor and master with first class honors (top 3%). I also have around 3 year work legal and financial experience (1 year in private legal practice and 2 years working in 2 major Central banks).

From your experiences, what do you think of my chances to get admitted to the LLM programs like Harvard, Columbia, NYU, Chicago, Penn etc

Many thanks!

I think that you have pretty good chances for all universities that you have mentioned. Obviously, Harvard would be the most challenging, but it sounds like you would have a good shot there as well. 

Besides what you have already mentioned about yourself, you forgot to mention where do you come from. With universities like Harvard and Columbia, this is a very important factor. If you come from a country, which is underrepresented in their class of 2022, then you would have even better chances. If you come from a country from which they get many applications from highly-qualified candidates, then it would be a bit harder. 

In any case, make sure that you score high on TOEFL, and have great recommendations and essays. 

Good luck! 1f642

I agree with Chubritza.  I think you have a very good chance of being admitted in the Universities you mentioned.  Harvard will be the most challenging but you should definitely apply, and I don't think you'll have a problem getting into the other T14 schools.
