UK 2:1's admission to Cornell, Columbia or NYU?


GlasgowLaw

Hey guys,

Looking for UK grads, who have been admitted to either Cornell, Columbia or NYU with a very high 2:1 LL.B. from a well known law school?

Cheers

I know several former Oxbridge students who have been admitted to NYU with 2.i's so it is definitely possible to get a place there without a 1st. I don't have any knowledge of people from the UK being admitted to Cornell or Columbia however. I would think for Cornell a high 2.i would be sufficient as I can't see them having more stringent academic requirements than NYU when it came to pure grades. Work experience is probably more important for Columbia given that I believe they generally require two years experience.

Hope that helps a little!

I think the work experience element might be your sticking point with Columbia. Note that the admissions criteria are somewhat flexible, but you'd need to convince them you were an exceptional applicant if they were to take you with no work experience.

I spoke to Columbia admissions and last year they advised that they rarely see firsts from the UK (especially a good law school), but would expect atleast a 2.1. Their focus is on the experience of the individual, from what I have seen it also appears to be experience in terms of having published legal articles etc.
Hope that helps.
