Just heard that a friend of someone I know already got denied by Columbia.

Anyway, she is now about to obtain her first LL.M. from Cornell. I am not sure whether or not CLS has a policy prohibiting international students who already obtained their first LL.M. in the States from pursuing the second ll.m. there.

Good luck,

My applications were sent to Michigan, Cornell, Northwestern, Upenn, Georgetown in the middle of Nov 2004 and to HLS in the end of Nov 2004 just right before deadline.

I got admitted to Georgetown at Dec 7, 2004 since it was the early action process.

For the rest, except for HLS, i got receipts confirming that my applications are complete by email about 2-3 weeks after my applications were sent. Ohh, for UPenn, it takes about 2 more months just to confirm it. UPenn also notified me that at this point of time, they got 40% more applications compared to number of applicants at the same time last year.

About HLS, I got nothing in return. I sure added three self-addressed labels to my application materials as required in the official webpage.

Please note that according to HLS website, all decisions will be notified to all applicants by March 15, 2005 whether you are admitted, denied or waitlisted.


(1)last year a friend of mine got reply from UChic in March. I have no idea about Yale anyway.

(2)In general, once offerred a seat in a ll.m. program, you are required to accept your offer of admission to that law school, perhaps with some deposits. A deadline for your acceptance will be given in the decision mail or the admitted student website. I understand that for some schools if you cannot make such commitment in time, you are allowed to ask for an  extension. But please make sure that you make a request for such extension as earliest as you can and already obtain their grant before doing so.
Good luck,

Thanks for your reply, Ray!

I also got confirmations of my applications status from all remaining schools, except for Harvard!!! My application for HLS was sent to the admission committee right before its deadline, but I still get nothing in return. I understand from their website that they will send each applicant a postcard to confirm completion of his/her application and the second one will be served once the decision is made. No email or phone call to check the status of application is allowed. So Ray, what kind of notification did you receive?

Considering your list of schools, I found only one of your choices matching mine. Therefore, hope to see u there at HLS.

This is my first time in this board. Nice to know you all.

I am also applying for an LL.M. program in this 2005 - 2006 and have already submitted my applications since November 2004. My profile is not such a perfect one. I obtain a LL.B with second class honor. My Toefl is about 260 and I have 3 years experience in a branch of an international law firm in my home country.   

There are six schools that I applied which are Harvard, Cornell, UPenn, Michigan, Northwestern and Georgetown. I already got accepted by Georgetown (early action) in December 2004 and still look forward to hearing from the others.

Has anybody applied the same school as me? Do you hear anything from those admission committee yet? I am now awaiting the results day after day with concerns.

I would appreciate it very much if you guys share any information about the status of your applications or any news from law schools you applied.

For Ray and those applying for the LL.M. program, good luck for your applications. Hope to be one classmate of yours.
