@ Irish Guy,

per your posts on this forum, i gather that you obtained an LL.M ('05) and then a J.S.D. from University of Chicago, and then a J.D. from Stanford? Wow! (????)

Have just accepted the amdmission with Chicago and is considering the housing options. I noticed that last year's llm students live either in Regents Park or the New Grad. Why there was no one staying at other on-campus dorm buildings? There seems to be plenty as indicated in this map:

Hey slave.lex,

Yes, that's right. Technically, though, I did the J.D. and J.S.D. programs at the same time. Chicago lets you work on your doctoral dissertation anywhere in the world, as long as you stay in regular contact with your supervisor, so I was able to work on it during my J.D. studies. An intense experience, to be sure, but ultimately a rewarding one!

In any event, having been through the trenches for both J.D. and LL.M. admissions, I'm always happy to help other people applying for US study from abroad. I certainly appreciated all the advice I got when I was applying a few years ago!

I don't understand why most LLMs go to regents park... it's very expensive and there are more reasonable priced appartments near the school !

still waiting for a response from UChicago...I sent them a first enquiry back in mid March and then again a second one 10 days ago...given the slim chance to get into the program, and given also the fact that I've already paid deposit fee at NU, I'm not struggling after them, but it would be really appreciated to have a decision...eventually, I may consider to give up my spot at NU...

Im disappointed of UChicago and regrating of have accepted their offer. They state in their website an in every email that one of the best things of the LLM Program is the small size of the program, only 50 students; however, until this moment, we are 63.

It has to be considered that there are people that dont appear in the list of 63 but they will join us in the future (i.e., people who ask for a longer deadline), so, I guess that we will be around 70 STUDENTS, that is 40% more of the original size!!!!!! (imagine that NYU accept 630 instead of 450)

This is a huge problem for people like me that would like to do the JSD, because it will be more competence, and it will be also a problem for people that are looking for a job, since some law firms use the quota per law school system.

I still have my spot in another law school, maybe I should retreat from UoC. If not, we should talk with Mr. Badger this issue, in order to secure more spots for future JSDs.

Hey Braz,

I really wouldn't worry if there are 20 more students than normal. If you plan on doing the JSD, the only thing that really matters is introducing yourself to a professor under whom you would like to study and establishing a relationship with him/her during the LL.M. As far as I know, the school doesn't set a numerical limit on the number of doctoral candidates. Usually, 1 or 2 people per year enroll, but that's more a function of interest in further study than selectivity.

In any event, 70 people still makes Chicago one of the smallest LL,M programs. You'll have a terrific time there.

Thanks for consoling me Irish Guy, but I fell pretty much cheated. There are classes that are limited to a certain number of students, and, we will have problem with that, since we will be 40% more than expected.

What would have happened if Columbia for example accepts 350 instead of 230 students or if NYU accept 630 instead of 450? I mean, 20 more students could not look like something obscene, but is 40% more of what they promise us!

I rejected another law school offer (with a generous amount of money in financial aid) because I wanted a smaller LLM (the class size of the other law school was 80 students) so, I felt so stupid right now. I really expect to hear what Chicago has to say.
