What are the odds of going to T14?


Muchluck

Hi, I’m planning to apply this year for 2022 intake. Would highly appreciate if anyone wants to share their view regarding my chance!



My credentials are as follow:

1. Graduated with the highest GPA from the best law school in the country (it’s a developing country in South East Asia), also honored with the highest GPA every year.



2. I’ve been working for 9 months at the top tier law firm in the country, which has association with the biggest law firm in Japan. (I will have about a year of working experience when applying and 2 years of working experience when the program starts in 2022)



3. Published a scopus international journal (Q3) on my final year in law school.



4. Gained an international exposure by (i) joining AIESEC and become the local volunteer and (ii) volunteering in legal clinic which program includes an exchange abroad.



Do you think I could make it to Harvard, Stanford, UChicago, Columbia, UPenn, UCB, Cornell, NYU?



Thanks in advance!

Harvard and Stanford is always tricky, so I actually have no idea on whether your credentials are enough or not. But you'd probably at least be a great candidate for Columbia, NYU and the other universities mentioned. Go for it!

Hey - you’ll get in to all of them, mark my words.. you’ve got to believe in yourself!  

For Harvard, your chances are super high as they’re all about geographic diversity so the smaller the country from which you apply the better your odds. That said, you should start preparing the essay question now so that you’ve got it perfect by the time you apply (I had to do mine in one week and trust me it was far too short). Also line up the best references you can (at least one professional and one academic).
One word of caution - Stanford’s program is super tough (depending on which LLM one you apply to) but again your CV looks top drawer so you’ll be fine!

Hi, thank you! I might not apply to Stanford cause I don’t have the 2 years working experience as required.. I think I will aim for UChicago and UPenn :)
