L.L.M. Board / Re: TAX LLM from NYU, UF, Gtown
« on: February 16, 2009, 11:46:44 PM »

I would prefer to go part-time, since I have a big-law job and would like to keep it while I'm taking classes. 

So, this biglaw job that you have allows you work from home or anywhere, including Florida, DC, or New York?

No it would not.  I could go part time in DC (where my job is located) and NY (they have an executive tax llm program).  But if I were to go to Florida, I would have to defer and decide whether I wanted to give up my job to move to FL for one year full time.

Any advice?

L.L.M. Board / TAX LLM from NYU, UF, Gtown
« on: February 01, 2009, 05:35:00 PM »
I am certain that I would like to obtain an LLM in tax from one of the top three schools.  I am seeking advice from folks who might give me some insight on what is required for admissions (preferably from those who have applied and have been accepted/rejected).

I would prefer to go part-time, since I have a big-law job and would like to keep it while I'm taking classes.  I know UF does not have a part-time program.  I attend a law school that is at the bottom of the first tier.  I am not sure what of where I will be ranked once I graduate, but I am certain it will at least be in the top 30-50% and maybe higher. 

Were your personal statements geared toward your interest in tax law? Must you be ranked at the top of your class? How many (if any) tax classes did you take in law school?  How well did you do in the tax classes you took in law school?  How rigorous is the program?

General Board / Re: Do BIGLAW firms recruit outside T14 schools?

I work for a Very Big firm (in DC) who only recruits from the T10 schools.  But there are a few that have slid in (i.e., from GW, NYL, American, Howard).  Granted, there is only one from each of those schools, it goes to show that if you have great grades and a lil' more, you could get lucky!
