LLM selectivity

Postby john1990 » Sun Dec 28, 2014 11:24 pm

I have seen a thread on this forum regarding transferring between jd programs and expected success dependent on class ranking. This thread was very interesting. Does anyone have any idea on how difficult it is to be accepted for an llm program after completing your jd program

HYS from T14/T1/T2/T3/T4?
T14 from T1/T2/T3/T4?
T1 from T2/T3/T4?
T2 from T3/T4?

This isn't how LLM programs work at all. Post the LLM and schools you are interested in. For example, a Florida tax LLM is worth more than a Harvard tax LLM or NYU corporate LLM. Hell, even a Golden Gate tax LLM might be worth more than NYU antitrust LLM.

But as far as T1 and T2 llms, unless its Florida tax LLM, I'd bet you get in from anywhere and everywhere.

Welcome back. You will succeed in any LLM program revolving around general shittiness. Tell Thomas Jefferson I send my regards.

I am looking for a corporate law llm since I am from a t4. I would be interested in Cardozo and Fordham to get a benchmark and aim from there. What class rank would be needed to get into the NYU corporate llm program from a t4?

Oh good, it's you. I thought you dropped out of Thomas Jefferson and were studying for the NY bar on your own.

I'm mostly just interested in the limit of your story's elasticity. Anyone who checks the post history here can see that john makes absolutely no sense.
