Stanford Fall 2015 admission

Hi guys,

So I applied Stanford's LST LLM in November, 2014. On 8
December, 2014, the status of my application changed to "Your file has been submitted for review".

Does anyone know how long after this can one expect a decision. I understand that SLS simply says that decisions will be communicated before April 1. But do the decision come in only in March or can they expected in December or January too?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Hobbit. I applied on 19th Nov. Received the acknowledgment on 20th Nov. Received an email with log-in details for status check on 10 December. The status of my application changed to 'your application has been submitted for review' on 12th December.

Check your spam folder. Sometimes emails from universities may end up there.

Do you think I should email them like you did?

Jack13, it doesn't harm if you write to them..it may be a coincidence that my application was processed on the same day as my email to SLS or may be not. A response to your email from SLS will certainly clarify your status.

So I was going through last year's SLS forums and I note that Stanford starts giving decisions by mid-february. However, they seem to be very disorganized and some people have even waited till the end of April for a decision (acceptance/rejection both).

It is going to be a long cold winter (at least here in India) of wait!

All the best to everyone? Any LST applications here?

Hi guys,

I know that you may waive the English requirement if you have work experience in ENGlish. I have been working at an US law firm here in Vietnam, and the working stuff is 95% in English (e.g. writting advice, memo, brief) Would this be sufficient for me to waive the English requirement ? Thanks :)

Good luck to all applicants.

I've just recognized that some schools, like Stanford, Colombia, have not IELTS information on their English as a second language test requirements. So, does it mean they do not accept IELTS scores?

I've got one more question:
When I look at LSAC for applying, for example to Berkeley; the deadline date is passed as you know, however the status of Berkeley displays 'available'. What does this mean?

Hi, Last year a friend who applied and submitted a memo in English did not get it. I took precaution and submitted a small writeup in English and was granted a waiver.

Dear LLM's,

I wish good luck for all applicants!

Could you please share your experience? I talked to some alumni, and most of them have honor, 5-10% GPA, 2 - 5 years of experience...
