Penn Law decisions


dragula

got a standard email...unprecedented number of applications.....we cant make a decision unless comparision with general pool is sought. will let you know by march 1.

in other words, "it doesnt matter if you applied for the early review. we cant make up our minds and we are gonna frustrate you for some more time"....

So Orwellian.....

Taking cross-disciplinary courses brings you a different perspective, especially if you're interested in the business world, and the brand Wharton is very strong (number 1 on the Financial Times for at least 3 years, above Harvard and all).

So it is really which field of interest you are interested in. If you're more into human rights for example, cross disciplinary studies won't be very helpful to you.


wharton prog admissions and financial aid decisions are made after admissions if I remember properly.

Yueping: Wharton's reputation as a business school is well established, of course. However, how do you use this reputation to make your Penn Law resume particularly eye-catching? Again, I'm interested in this very specific detail, and do wonder if I should have cross-registered myself. I'm not even sure how you'd draw a lot of attention to cross-registration in the resume.

Josepidal: What about Penn Law's Certificate in Business and Public Policy ?

Penn Law and Wharton have created a Joint Certificate Program in Law and Public Policy, "in recognition of the need for leaders to understand the levels on which law, business, and government increasingly interesect. A select group of students complete three courses in public policy at Wharton and one course at the Law School (elected from a faculty-designated list of specific courses)" to earn the Certificate while enrolled in the LL.M. program.

Don't you think this mention on one's resume could draw attention of an employer ?

However, I'm not sure HLS offer such a Certificate, so please excuse me if this does not help you knowing if you should have cross-registered yourself.

Cheers,

HLS doesn't. Precisely, I'd like to know if the certificate has a big impact, or if cross-registration might be a bigger plus in Penn Law (from the employer perspective, specifically).

Again, it's just that I've been told it offers no particular benefit from the employer perspective (the benefit to the student is obvious, and you might meet a future CEO, too). If anything, the particular certificate or concentration that gets attention seems to be Tax, considering Cravath of all places called HLS last week to ask for LLM resumes reflecting strong tax backgrounds. Other than this, I've seen language skills and licenses in particular countries receive attention.

Incidentally, someone told me that the most telling sign of the market strength this year is Cravath asking for LLM resumes, which is unheard of.

We are quite in a similar situation. I applied on line on 30 Jan. and got the email confirming the completeness of the application materials on 7 Jan.. Then got the admission letter on 8 Jan.. Fantastic world it is!!! However I am still looking forward to the info. about the financial assistance...

I don't see why you think it offers no benefits for the employer... The benefit is similar no matter which side (employer/employee) you consider. Cross-registered students at Penn secured a good number of job interviews (including the firm mentionned above).

Sigh. I don't think you understand the question.

However, regarding Cravath, do you mean LLM students? If so, do you mean LLMs in general or European or commonwealth country LLMs?
