Can anyone give a piece of advice on whether or not should I accept SLS's LST over HLS's general LL.M.? I was surprinsingly admitted in both programs and can't make up my mind. Thanks,


HLS general ! I would do so . And also just for the records I am not waitlisted for LST:)))

I am in the same position. Nothing yet. They seem to be quite unprofessional. At least they should send out
rejections

As regards Harvard v. Stanford - Stanford is said to be more exclusive? Better location with companies+law firms with good tech law practices. If you are doing LST, I'd say Stanford, mate.

But then - Harvard is a well recognized name EVERYWHERE. They also have the Berkman centre. I'd say it depends on your goals - academia - Harvard might be a good idea?

I envy you, btw.

To irmamx: tough call, although I suppose financial aid is an important part of the equation and SLS gives out none. If money is not an issue, I'd say SLS. It is more selective (while Harvard admits some 220 applicants per year, SLS's ELP program, for instance, seats 5-8) and the fact that it actually has concentration areas as opposed to a general LL.M. is a big advantage - for me at least. HLS's brand is of course very well-known outside the US, so if you want to make an impression back home it might be the school for you, but I don't actually think that'd be the best motivation for your decision. Finally, if you're into rankings (another debatable issue, but anyways), note that SLS used to rank higher than HLS - this year it's a tie.

To all fellow applicants nearly losing patience - I just called SLS's Office of Admissions, and was told that decisions of all programmes had been made out, therefore applicants would know their decisions by the end of this week. Good luck to all!

Thank you all, I do find your comments very helpful. Although I wouldn't say that being SLS more selective than HLS makes it a no-brainer. In my opinion this has to do with the fact that SLS has a smaller law school this was actually mentioned during my phone interview, which btw I did receive, whereas HLS is the oldest law school in the US, hence it can host a larger llm program by now. Dont you think?

The fact that SLS has concentration areas is a strong argument though!

Still dont know what to do, any additional thoughts? Btw. for those in the waitlist: the given deadline for the LST is May 1st! Good luck!

Honestly? Just choose the city you want to spend 1 year in. You cant choose wrong between SLS and HLS.

goodmorning everybody!! so did anyone receive anything yesterday. i still wanna hope that the LST program has not closed yet. i do believe that the admitted ones have already been notified..do y think that there are still chances for open spots or not ?? I do not mean waitlist etc.
anw, this attitude, not informing us, is rather unprofessional. everybody should be aware of the decision by now..
