CLS LLM- waiting list
Fri Mar 19, 2010 09:34 PM
Hi - I applied in the regular cyle to the LLM with a view to specialize in public international law/international criminal law.
I have just received notification that I have been put on the waiting list and should expect a final decision later this spring.
What are the chances of getting in and when would I expect a decision?

I also applied to NYU and Michigan and didn't get in, but got accepted to Northwestern and the Fletcher School of Diplomacy. I'm still waiting on Georgetown and Leiden University.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Hi

I also applied to regular cycle LLM for CLS and have been waitlisted just now, told to expect a final decision later this spring.

I also applied to NYU and just received a rejection, but applied to Fordham and have gotten in. If anyone has an opinion on the odds of the waitlist I'd love to hear it... or if you know how big the waitlist at this stage in CLS is?

Thanks!

Hi, I applied to early review but was deferred to regular cycly and havent heard a thing. That makes me doubt if i'm at the bottom of the list or what. Given that I applied before and that they said that my file was gonna be reviewed with everyone else, it's kindda strange that other s have been admitted or rejected or waitlisted and nothing for me. At this point, no news might be good news?

Is anyone else in the same position?

Apparently no one among the ppl who applied through early review and have been consequently waitlisted received a final decision from CLS: AM I CORRECT?

Well honestly, it looks like it is bad news: the people who will have offers from CLS will not, for the vast majority, turn them down...and the fact that we are numerous to be on the waiting list does not help either :-(

I'm not so sure about it. What you say might be true, but from what I've read in other posts, most people accepted to HLS are dropping their seats at CLS, so it shouldnt be lots of spots, but at the end of the monnth some new seats should be available.

In my particular case, I applied early review and they deferred me. They could have just rejected me, so I thinkl that means that I wanst at the top of the pool, but wanst at the bottom either. In that sense, I still have my hope up. I beleive that the end of the month should bring news, good ro bad, but news at the end.

I got accepted to the Northwestern LLM international law class and Fletcher - Any ideas on which one is the better choice? First it was the application process and now the decision making process - going slowly crazy!
