One of my friends is currently enrolled in Fordham's LLM. Well, guess what? It IS very tough. According to him, you don't have a lot of classes (something like 12hrs a week), but they're very intense, with a huge load of homework... And also, you HAVE to participate by asking questions, giving answers, etc.

NYU, easy to get into?
I was rejected there... They seem to require a strong work experience, and I don't have any in law.
By the way, do you guys think that the usual rankings (US News, Leiter...) apply to LLM programs as well?

LLM are for people who already own a JD, and/or foreign lawyers. If you're in highschool, you should take pre-law in college (undergraduate studies), and then apply to a law school (graduate studies).

I'm stuck on Cornell's LLM waitlist...
Does anyone have a clue about my chances to get in after the wait?

Me. Accepted on jan. 23rd, in the ILSP LLM program.

Nothing from NYU yet...
Nothing from Fordham either.

I'm a French law student, applying for an LLM program.
I've been studying law for 6 years in France (I have a graduate degree in business law, and two masters in media law and intellectual property), without attending to a single class. I've only studied on books, hilighting, and sometimes writing small outlines.
My point is: there's nothing like a book. I can assure you that the (good) authors have written it in a far better way than you. It's even easier to remember.
Anyways, maybe after my LLM I'll be telling you that I did end up taking notes and everything... Who knows?

I am a French student, and I am currently applying to an LLM myself.
Columbia and NYU are of course excellent, but very hard to get into. Fordham and Cardozo are very good choices. Those four schools pretty much "guarantee" you a good job when you get your degree (something like $100 000 a year).
I can't tell anything about the other ones.
You can take a look at www.auap.com

Cardozo Yeshiva U is located in Manhattan (555, 5th avenue - no joke) and has a strong reputation in intellectual property (#5 in the US, I think). It's also known for its involvmennt against death penalty.
I'm not a student there, this is only what I heard about them. You could check this out on their website or on US News' site.
