L.L.M. Board / Re: How competative are Tax LLM programs to get into?

As an FYI by T14 I meant top 14 not sure if people still use that term or not. Did not want it to be confused with Tier 4.

thanks :)

L.L.M. Board / How competative are Tax LLM programs to get into?

Hi,

I am a rising 3L at a T14 law school. Like many others I am EXTREMELY concerned about the lack of jobs....especially after i just received the OCI schedule. I had been thinking about doing an LLM in taxation pretty much since i started. I have taken several business and tax classes while in law school. My GPA is around a 2.9 I am hoping to boost it a bit this year...but i've been working as hard as i can and for the most part all i get are Bs so not sure how realistic it is that it will go up...but one can hope. Anyway I am planning to apply to LLM programs. I have a strong financial background and I have clerked for federal judges for the past two summers. Where do I stand as an applicant? How competitive are the programs? I know very little other then the top 3 are NYU, GULC, UF followed by Northwestern and BU.

Any advice or information that can be shared would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
