Anyone admitted for this program? Any thoughts in comparing this program with Columbia's LLM?

I have applied to HLS (no news), CLS (admitted, have until 27 March) and have until 9 March to accept NYU! I really don't know what to do...

The latter (I believe that NYU's letter is crystal clear -- they are not giving extensions).

HLS replied that they were not able to give me an answer before the 29th.

@J_Law:
So you mean HLS will not release their decisions before 29 March?

I also asked Harvard for an expedited decision and they stated that there will be no decision before 29 march and that they would recommend to accept NYU's offer in case I cannot get an extension from NYU..I am inclined to do so...

@XY60:
If were you, I would accept NYU's offer as well. By the way, what's your area of interest, XY60?

I am specialising in the field of international arbitration and complex litigation..Generally speaking, I think that Harvard's reputation is much better than NYU's. I am not so sure whether this is also true when it comes to my fields of interest..

Congrats J_Law, hybrid and XY60! :)

I applied for this program too and am still waiting to hear from them... Not too hopeful anymore.

Does anyone know how big is the intake for this program?

I have no idea on the intake (since it's the first year of this program).

I think I made my mind for NYU. I will rest it tonight and, most likely, send my acceptance tomorrow morning. :s

For me it is international commercial arbitration, investment law and arbitration, international law and contracts.

Hope I'll see you at the village ;-)

I don't think so. I am a US applicant still waiting for NYU's response. Are there any rejection out there?

This should be fun... :P I'm sure there are others who were admitted, they just haven't stumbled across this particular discussion.
