Worst: the law schools which rejected me. HYS I hate you!
Best: every other.

Yes I'm terribly biased ;-)

I think it is a good idea for all of us here to discuss and compare our experience. I'm sure Admission officers do come by and read this board from time to time, and this is something we can do to offer as a feedback, and hopefully things can only get better for the next generation.

HLS >

Before application:
I find their admissions information PDF file to be the most complete and easy to read. I have few questions and I get helpful replies, though not very promptly, regarding how to propertly sign the traveler's check. The PDF is also double column which saves paper.

Too bad they don't mail application prospectus to mail address anymore. Go green perhaps, so I support it.

But HLS, if we all remember, didn't talk about available online application until I applied via paper and costly Fed-ex, perhaps it is the first year so a delay, understadable.

After application:
At first I mostly get automatic answers with no specific details regarding my inquiries on the status of my application. Never got the status update from them. But they are very helpful when it I had issues with multiple offers and tight deadlines.

NYU >

Before application:
Their PDF file has good details, though I find it a bit disorganised. Online application was easy and smooth, but it wasn't clear whether non-Hauser applicants can submit additional information via their website. Limiting CV to 2 page and 2 recommenders can be a challenging task if you have a lot to say about yourself.

After application:
Fast and straight to the point. I think they are very efficient. I get an email updating the status of my application, and they reply to my specific questions quite promptly. Keep up the good work!

CLS >

Before application:
I wish CLS can provide us with a PDF file like HLS and NYU, the one-stop document that we can read all we need to know about admissions. Their website is quite helpful but I find it a bit tricky to navigate. The online application was smooth, but online application became active in September which was a bit late considering those going for early cycle.

After application:
A bit slower than NYU, but Sylvia Polo is helpful. I think she runs the show and she talks to us directly, which is great. I also appreciate their early results system which ease the burden of anxiety for some, and make the rest just nervous!


Look forward to more thoughts! Let's democratise the admissions!

CLS, UofM, UCB - soooooo very nice and helpful people in any stadium of your application!

HLS - great before applying... not so much afterwards.
