Talking about USC, there are more than 120 students in 2010. Around half students are Chinese. But they are basically fresh students who just graduated from college without any working experience and a license. It might have been easier for Chinese people for admission.

Most of students are from Asian countries including Korea, Thai, Japan. 10-20 are from Europe.

People make their own group based on their countries, it might not be so international atmosphere here. People tend to use their own language.

If you are not so confident in speaking English, USC is the best choice.

I was ammitted last week but i am still thinking about.
Duke and Northwestern seem better options at the moment
However only 10/20 students/lawyers from Europe, really (I am from Italy by the way)?

Hello everyone. I have been informed of my admission to USC last week, and based on the deposit payment form, I must fax or email the form (plus pay the deposit) before March 24. However, there's also a statement in the form saying "you will only be enrolled if space is available". I'm kinda confused, does this mean it's possible that there won't be enough space although I have paid the deposit before March 24? Appreciate any information on this. Cheers!

Are you really in the LL.M. program? Your experience must be very different than mine.
While it is true that there are many Asian students, I feel that the whole body of LL.M. students is pretty close to each other. There are many events scattered throughout the year that promote bonding and myself and others made many friends from other countries with whom we regularly hang out. In addition, I believe that USC is the only school that has a program where virtually every LL.M. is paired up with an American JD student. This is a great opportunity to get closer to the American students and be introduced to a whole new group of people. Some of my friends who went to other schools, complained that they had a hard time befriending JD students which seems to be easier here (at least you have more opportunities).

Moreover, it seems that every year the number of students from other countries is growing. So, there may be even more LL.M. students from non-Asian countries next year to increase diversity, if that's your concern.

I also don't understand how you could advise people who are not confident in speaking English to pick USC. Everything here is in English and without proper skills, it won't matter which school you attend. Besides, you will miss out on a lot, if you choose to only stay within a group of students from your own country.
