University of Chicago, LL.M. Programの出願締め切り日です。
December 15—Priority application submission deadline. On or before this date candidates should have submitted their Basic Information Form electronically to the Law School and the following items to the LSAC LLMCAS: application for admission, personal statement, and resume. Candidates may apply after December 15. They do not need to ask permission to do this. They should understand, however, that they assume the risk that most admission decisions will have been made by the time their applications have been completed and reviewed by the Graduate Studies Committee. Candidates who do apply after December 15 should include with their personal statements an explanation about why they did not apply before the deadline.
January 15—Priority application completion deadline. Although most applicants will have completed their applications (application for admission, personal statement, resume, transcripts, TOEFL/IELTS scores, and letters of recommendation) by the December 15 deadline, candidates whose applications are completed between December 15 and January 15 will receive full application review before decisions are sent out on February 15. Applications completed after January 15 will be reviewed once they are complete, but those candidates should understand that, as a practical matter, the later we review a completed application, the less likely we are to be able to offer admission. This timing varies from year to year, and it is impossible to predict ahead of time when we will have to stop offering admission to candidates.

Although the application deadline is December 15, candidates are urged to submit their applications as soon as possible since applications are considered in the order in which they are completed. Our experience has been that the most promising candidates generally apply before the end of November.
Any applications received after December 15 will be considered on a space-available basis only. Consideration of completed applications will begin in late November, and most candidates will receive an email decision message by mid-February, when a standby group will be created. It is the responsibility of applicants to monitor the status of their applications.
よくあるご相談の一つに「締め切り日後における出願の可能性」が挙げられますが、同校の場合はspace-available basis onlyとしています。考え方によっては、12月15日以降に提出しても「合格の可能性」は残るものの、書類審査は後回しになるため、可能性は低くなると言わざるえません。TOEFL Scoreとの兼ね合いで15日に間に合わないケースも出てくる可能性と相対した際にどのような判断を下されますか？むろん、そうならないためにもより一層の入念な準備を進めていきましょう。

Please note that December 15 is not a completion deadline. Candidates may take the TOEFL test after that date or submit documents to complete their applications after that date, but the first six items on the Application Materials Form checklist should be submitted together though either the electronic application method or the hard copy application method by December 15.
