Tracking progress of NYU LLM application


mstreis

From my understanding, excellent candidatees are admitted early in the process. The rest of the applicants are admitted beginning in March. For example, I have a friend who applied to last year's program, and he was admitted right around Christmas time. He was top in his class.

I still have not yet received a response on my application. I applied in late October. I received an email requesting my Fal 2010 semester grades. Once I sent in my transcript for the Fall 2010, I received an email stating my application was complete and under review on January 25th.

I also have a feeling that people who have made combined applications to the NYU@NUS and NYU@NYU courses, get earlier responses since the course at NUS starts in May and they need to decide between NUS and NYU by the second week of January. Such was the case with me.

I just applied to NYU and GULC (tax LL.M.) and would like everyone to evaluate my chances.

Top 20 Undergrad (3.43 GPA); Econ and Political Science Major (provided only because GULC requires undergrad info).

T1 Law School (ranked ~50)
3.3 GPA, roughly top 25%, Tax Journal Executive Board, Clinical Experience.
Have taken 5 tax class (4 completed to date; 4.0 GPA)
-Fed Income Tax (A)
-Federal Tax Practice (A+)
-Tax Clinic (A+, CALI/Book Award)
-Corporate Tax (A+, CALI/Book Award)
-Partnership Tax (N/A as I am currently taking this class)

Because my focus will be on corporate tax/business tax, other related courses/grades include Corporations (A), Corporate Finance (B+), Securities (A-), Accounting (A-), Contracts (A-).

Experience: Clerk for Federal District COurt, Litigation Law Firm Associate

Bar: Sitting for Bar in PA and NJ (NJ residence for what its worth).

My applications are in, and I should hear shortly; just wondering what I can expect. Thanks for any guidance.

Since when did law schools (or any school other than high school) give A+ as a grade?

Sorry Newbury. It must suck getting a hard-on everytime your email account informs you that there is a new response to your board post, only to realize that it has nothing to do with you. Thanks. :)

A+ generally denotes top two grades in class; CALI award denotes top grade in class. It has no effect on your GPA (i.e. both an A and A+ are 4.0s). Mind you I did not come up with the system.

But I guess I will decline it. I will only go to Harvard if I got some financial aid. I can not afford it right now. Anyway, as far as I am concerned, Harvard gives all its admitted students financial aid. Just waiting to see what is in there for me.
Regards!
