Tracking progress of NYU LLM application


Hi guys. Just got the 'application complete' email. Is it ok that it took them around 22 days to send it out?

It seems so, it was around the same for me since the moment I went complete.

Should I start worrying? It has been about 35 days since I applied... No message Yet!

True..I wouldn't be able to determine the weight of a 'reco' on the admissions decision process either. But still, I believe any admissions process considers your application as whole. I mean, in order to make a successful program the students need to be professionally successful in their desired fields, have good exposure, etc.. That can happen if you are bright, smart and intelligent, but it also helps to be well connected and have a great network. In that sense, reco's are an important and helpful endorsement. How much does it help on the NYU process? I wouldn't be able to tell you...but I think the more proeminent are the recommenders, the best in any case (as long as they really know you and your professional or academic work).

Moreover! One shouldn't forget the fact that an NYU LL.M. application only make space for a very short personal statement. This is, IMO, an element that puts more weight on other elements, such as reco's

The decision is released as a link in an email message going to your NYU online application account. Link is towards bottom of first screen. You download a pdf whose password is your app id #.

Good luck everyone!

Hey,

Don't get me wrong, NYU is a great law school and I've applied there as well, but the admission process looks like a joke... 500 words? 1 (or 2) recommendation letters? The fact is that they have so many applicants that they wouldn't have time to process more complete applications... I think NYU is really "lottery" and have some friends that got in the best law schools (Harvard, Columbia etc) and got rejected by NYU...

I still hope I get in though :)

Cheers.
