University of Chicago Law School LLM Applicants May Still Submit Beyond January 15 Deadline
The University of Chicago Law School is one of the leading US law schools. It offers, among others, a Master of Laws (LLM) and a Master of Comparative Law (MCompL) programs. Most LLM applicants choose the LLM degree, while some are awarded the MCompL if they choose to take this route. The requirements for the two LLM degrees are the same.
Applications to the two Master of Laws programs have started since September 2017 and a priority application completion deadline is set on 15 January 2018 for the Fall 2018 LLM intake. Given the few days left to complete the application and all requirements (application for admission, personal statement, resume, transcripts, TOEFL or IELTS scores, and letters of recommendation) new applicants are unlikely to meet this deadline. Those who do meet the deadline of January 15 will know whether they have been successful by February 15.
The Law School has said that it will still review applications which are submitted beyond January 15 as long as they are complete. However, these applicants should understand that those who submitted early will be given preference and late applications have a lower chance of being accepted. For those who are intent on getting their LLM education from the University of Chicago Law School and believe they have what it takes to be accepted, there is no harm in trying, especially as slots are still available.
Applications and requirements may be submitted online through the LSAC's LLM Credential Assembly Service.
