I don't know for sure at all, but we can try to guess !
Here : http://www.llm-guide.com/university/302/university-of-pennsylvania-upenn-law-school-penn-law/apptracker
There are :
-26 admitted
-6 waitlisted

In the email they've said they received 1200 applications for 100 places in this year's class.

So, proportionally (with cross-multiplication) :
-admitted : 26 ==> 100
-waitlisted : 6 ===> 23


So, for now, I guess there are at least 23 people on waitlist ! ;)

I'm also in!!! Got the admission offer yesterday around noon! Immediatly after I wrote to the Grads Office asking about financial aid, and they answered:

"We will be making financial aid decisions in the week or two. All LLM applicants are considered for financial aid so there is nothing you need do further."

Hope this helps!

Ps. Summer Program is mandatory and it begins in the first week of August!

Yes, that's why you'll be paying the extra US$2000! It's all in the admission webpage, plus I also asked about it to the Grads Office...

I was sort of hoping it would start mid-August, as I am graduating on July, 22. Relocating in a week seems like an impossible mission!

Hi everyone! Congratulations to all of you admitted!
Been following the thread and thought of jumping in. Have also been admitted to Penn yesterday, and also in the decision making process of where to go.
I'm between Penn and Fordham. Been admitted to both, and obviously Penn would be more expensive (mainly given that I live in NY already and close to Fordham). Any thoughts?
And may I jump in with the offer of wine too, from my part from Argentina! Best to all!

I need to disclose the following conflict of interest: I am biased towards having a wine tasting party from each of our countries when we get to Penn.

However, in my modest opinion, as far as reputation goes, Penn is far superior. Wouldn't you be at least partially saving money by NOT living in Manhattan?

Borderline: I absolutely support the wine tasting motion. That adds another reason to go to Penn.

Unfortunately, doesn't really save me much money, given that I already have an apartment in NY with my husband, and going to Penn would mean having to get a place to live in Philly on top of the place in NY! But well, I do agree and am conscious of Penn's superiority... And that is a HUGE pull. Thanks for the input though... unconsciouly I guess I am looking for supporters towards the Penn move (I have to sell it to my husband somehow...!) ;)

I am planning on sitting for NY Bar afterwards, does anyone have any info on Penn having a good program in order to proceed with Bar exam after LLM?

Congrats on your acceptance Truly. If I end up at Penn, I'm all up for the wine event, I can bring some Greek wine and you know us Greeks, where there's a party, we go!

As for the decision between Penn and Fordham. I understand the concern about the financial burden however I feel there is a big gap of prestige and I am going to assume subsequently substance between the two Schools. The way I look at this, it is an once in a lifetime investment the one we are about to make - both money and time wise. It may not be repeated so the only choice we have is to get it right this time around. Of course that is not to say that Fordham would be a bad decision, but I'm sure you know where I'm going with this.

Just my two cents, If we end up at Penn I am holding you all on the wine party!

P.S. I have a friend who did the Penn LLM two years ago and I know he did a course at Penn for the NYC Bar but I'll have to ask him more about it and come back to you.

First, I agree with you 100% regarding the investment in a LLM course, specially when it's not only the economic aspect that you have to consider but the relocation process, adapting to a new environment and in many cases resigning to a steady income for the promise or hope of better years ahead (although everyone here must share the view that investing in education is a priority in this modern and global world).

Second, it's clear that greeks invented the Wine Party concept! :D Now it would be really help us all to get some sort of aid to have a big event...Or whoever gets the better aid package in this board shall bring more expensive wine to the table!

PS: We are all talking red wine, aren't we ?

I agree with everything andyllop stated above...except for the type of the wine. From my region: white wine, of course. Pinot grigio, verduzzo, prosecco, ribolla/rebula, savignon blanc, tokai (thanks to the EU now officially renamed savignonesse)...

I believe the Greeks are famous for the rezina (I probably misspelt it, I apologize), which is white.

Guys, guys, as long as it is good wine, let rain - red, white, rose! And yes, Penn, please give us money. We clearly have very noble intentions and plans to spend it on!

I think we will all get along veeeery well at Penn. Hooray for the winos! =)
From my side, red wine always! But I am open to having more options for all.
Thanks all for the opinions on schools... I am very inclined to Penn, so hope it works for all of us and we get to meet in a few months and share some good international wine!

If I get an admission, I'll be more than happy to bring some wine from France !

But I think I'll be the only guy who doesn't drink alcohol at all ! lol
Yeah, a French who doesn't drink alcohol, wine, etc... lol

---

By the way, for the waitlist people (including me) :
From what I've seen in this board (I've searched in the previous years posts)
==> admissions for waitlisted come in May (early May and mid-May)
==> rejections in June

:) I am loving Penn law community already!
And yes, I agree on the wine event as a must as soon as we make it to good Philly.

I may not provide great Chilean,Argentinian (specially if from Mendoza), Italian nor Greek wine .. but, since I'm Peruvian :) I would be more than happy to share Pisco sours with you guys!

BTW, Grad.help answered today saying that answers regarding fin aid would be made during March but, could also be done in part of April.. I'll keep finger crossed.

You are more than welcome ! I received an email from Matthew Parker today being very down to earth about the financial aid for the LLM. Guess our alcohol party will have to be a once in a time event only and then back to 35c draft beer...

Also, I talked today with a current LLM student, which was very useful. If you want some pointers PM me.
