Stanford - LLM in Law, Science & Technology

I saw this question left unanswered in another thread, but has anyone heard from Stanford with respect to this specific program? I've been accepted to NYU and Columbia so far. Still waiting on this, Harvard and Berkeley.

Stanford is my #1 choice however.

I am in too. Received the admission e-mail two hours ago. No phone interview.

Does anyone know whether study in this "specialised" program can still qualify us for NY bar exam? I know some people with fear of not being able to sit NY bar exam change from specialised LLM to traditional LLM in NYU.

Thanks!

well that makes 5 of us out of 15-20 admitted students (well I'm sure more but the class size is reportedly 15-20). Is this program as hard to get in as it seems or it's just that not as many people apply?

Still waiting on Harvard but also debating Columbia / NYU / Berkeley (moreso Columbia)... thoughts?

Ok, now that I'm reading your post again, maybe you asked another question! lol Still, the bottom line is that the program is indeed so hard to get in and trust me, many many many people have applied! : )

Congrats everyone, looking forward to joining you all in September!

I make that 7 now... unless dudebrah - you drop out? thought it was your no.1 choice?!

Good to know you're thinking long and hard about it - to be honest though, the chance of studying what they're offering... in the heart of silicon valley... does it get much better?

LST seems to be hard to be admitted due to the small class policy. However, considering reputation and job opportunity after graduation, do you really think this program is better than Harvard or Columbia + scholarship? SLS has good weather, but I think, at least, in the light of job opportunity, LST cannot compete with schools in Boston or NY. Is there any body who has some ideas about that?

I think this is crazy, so long as you're referring to jobs in the tech law space. General corporate monkey jobs? Sure, Harvard has the brand name (arguably rapidly declining in value).

I'll be accepting Stanford, just trying to find a bank willing to let me sign my life away. (A little disappointing SLS doesn't assist at all in this respect).

Anyway, someone feel like starting a SLS LST '011 Facebook group? :)

Those are all great schools and you cannot go wrong with any of them. Remember, Law schools will only give you a formation and a professional network. Corporate monkey or else is for you to forge after graduation. So, if you are100% determined on the sillicon valley aspect and have the means to pay for it, go for it. Otherwise, I would go for the one that will leave you with the least financial burden. To put it another way, it is better to be a debt free Columbia alumn than a Stanford's highly indebted one.

i completely agree with Oldtimer (who by his/her name clearly benefits from the hindsight of experience ;) ).
