昨年までとは変わり、締切日が一ヶ月前倒しとなりました。
年々12月に締切日を設定するスクールが増えてきておりますが、同校もその例に含まれます。

これからの時期はLSACへ登録し、(LSACの)システムを使いながら準備を進めていかなければなりませんが、同システムを通して提出する書類が以下のようにまとめられています。ご一読ください。

All applications must be submitted through the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC). A complete application contains the following:

The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Law School Report including

  • official certification of each degree you have earned
  • two letters of recommendation through LSAC’s Letter of Recommendation Service
  • official TOEFL score if proficiency in English is not met as described above

まずは、Admissions Deadlineです。
The 2016-2017 application deadlines are as follows:
Round 1 – October 3, 2016
Round 2 – January 20, 2017
Round 3 – March 3, 2017

The Law Tech program is an integral part of the new academic model at Cornell Tech, where education and research are closely tied to creating and expanding companies and industries. As a student, you’ll have unique collaboration opportunities on campus, as well as with New York-based companies in the tech industry.

For foreign-trained students, the Tech LLM will not by itself qualify graduates to sit for the New York State bar exami­nation; but, by undertaking a semester of additional coursework at Cornell’s Ithaca campus, foreign-trained students who desire to do so can satisfy the requirements to sit for the bar. 

Who should apply?

Ideal candidates for the LLM degree at Cornell Tech are already-practicing attorneys or recent law graduates who possess strong academic or professional credentials, as well as an active interest in technology and entrepreneurship.

一日も早く出願したいところですが、スコアメイキングに時間を要する方々は、年明けの2nd Rourndを出願時期として定め、焦ることなく、今から着実にその準備を進めてください。

また、上記サイトにはApplication Checklist(Statement of Purpose課題)も掲載されていますので、まずは一読してください。

By December 15, please submit your application, including all supporting materials, through LSAC. A complete application includes the following:

  • Application form-A completed and signed application form.
  • Statement of interest-A statement of approximately 750 words explaining your purpose for obtaining the degree, your research and study interests, and their relation to your previous education and professional goals. Include your full name on the top of each page of the statement of interest.

  • Letters of recommendation-Two letters of recommendation from faculty members acquainted with your work in the major area of study. If that work occurred more than three years ago, or if such letters are not obtainable because of circumstances beyond your control, recommendations from those familiar with your professional performance are acceptable. These should also be submitted through the LSAC’s Letter of Recommendation Service.
  • Demonstration of English proficiency-Proficiency in English is required for admission. Your level of proficiency, as demonstrated by all aspects of the application, is a significant factor in our decision-making process.

We do not accept IELTS.
  • Application fee-Nonrefundable U.S. $80 application fee.

Documents in languages other than English must be accompanied by a certified translation in a signed, sealed envelope. Our committee will review complete applications only. Applications received after January 1 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

そして、TOEFLのMinimum Recommended Scoreに関する記載内容には79ptsがminimum scoreと記されています。そして更には、Accepted applicants whose TOEFL scores are between 550 and 600 (paper-based), between 213 and 250 (computer-based, or between 79 and 100 (Internet-based)) must take the English placement test given at Cornell during registration weekとも続きます。

どう解釈したら良いか?と考えてしまうところですが、他の出願校に必要なスコアとの兼ね合いも含めながら、現状のスコア、そして締切日までの対策時間も考慮した上で、自らにとって妥当な目標スコアを設定していきましょう。

又、同校のPersona Statementに関する課題内容は以下の通りです。文字数、フォント等に関する記述はなされていません。Please submit a separate statement of interest discussing your academic interests and proposed course of study at Cornell. 「記述していないなら、何枚でも・・・」という訳にはいきませんので、匙加減を見極めていかなければなりませんね。
