【LL.M. 2016年秋入学用出願締め切り日】 Columbia

Early Review Program
Applicants for admission to our 2016-2017 LL.M. Program, except those who are in the final year of their first law degree and reapplicants who were not granted admission, have the option of applying through the Early Review Program. The advantage of applying early is that you will most likely have a decision by late December. We encourage early applications from those who feel they have compiled their strongest possible application by November 3. To be considered under the Early Review Program, you must:

  1. Submit your online application by the early review deadline;
  2. Submit your transcripts, TOEFL scores, and letters of recommendation to LSAC a few weeks in advance of the November 3 deadline so that they have time to process your full CAS report and forward it to us by November 3; and
  3. Specify that you wish to be considered for early review by answering “yes” to the Early Review question in the “Application Deadlines” section of this application.

All application materials, including supporting documents and TOEFL scores, must be submitted and fully processed and considered complete by Columbia by November 3, 2015. If your application is not complete by November 3, 2015 (including your full CAS report), we will automatically defer your application for consideration as part of the regular admission cycle.

We will provide a decision for early applicants by the end of December. Applicants will be admitted, rejected, or deferred to the regular admission cycle. If you are admitted through the Early Review Program, you will not be required to withdraw your applications to other LL.M. programs.

Regular Application Deadline

The Columbia online application through LSAC must be submitted by December 15, 2015 and all supporting documents for the CAS report must be postmarked to LSAC by December 15.

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis, in most cases no later than late April. Rolling admissions means that we evaluate applications randomly; the date you submitted your application often has no bearing on when you will receive a decision. Some candidates will have a decision in early January, others in late April. If you have not yet received a decision, it most likely means that the Committee simply has not yet reviewed your application (so you should not worry!). We strive to give every candidate an answer by the end of April.

International MBA Applicants
Visa processing can take up to several months to complete, so it is in your best interest to apply in the Early Action Round, Round 1, or Round 2 if you require a visa.

Early Action Round

The Early Action Round is ideal if you have decided that the Daytime MBA is the best program for you.

  • Applicants commit to a binding agreement to attend Fuqua if admitted.
  • Any applications submitted to other schools must be withdrawn upon an offer of admission from Fuqua.
  • Scholarships are awarded according to the same guidelines in the Early Action Round as they are offered in Rounds 1 and 2; however, due to the binding nature of the Early Action Round you are required to attend with or without a scholarship award.
  • Regardless of your citizenship, all Early Action applicants residing in the U.S. (except on the West Coast) are required to travel to Durham to interview during the Open Interview Period.
    • If you live on the West Coast or outside of the U.S., you may interview in Durham during the Open Interview Period, but it is not a requirement. If you do not travel to Durham during the Open Interview period, you must await an invitation to interview at a location closer to you.

When a new person joins the Admissions team, we ask that person to share with everyone in the office a list of “25 Random Things About Yourself.” As an Admissions team, we already know the new hire’s professional and academic background, so learning these “25 Random Things” helps us get to know someone’s personality, background, special talents, and more.In this spirit, the Admissions Committee also wants to get to know you–beyond the professional and academic achievements listed in your resume and transcript. You can share with us important life experiences, your likes/dislikes, hobbies, achievements, fun facts, or anything that helps us understand what makes you who you are.

Your response should reflect your knowledge of Fuqua and the Daytime MBA program and experience, and the types of activities and leadership you would engage in as a Fuqua student.
    1. Authentic Engagement: We care and we take action. We each make a difference to Team Fuqua by being ourselves and engaging in and supporting activities about which we are passionate.

【イベントのご案内】MBA出願対策セミナーwith John Couke

5月に引き続き、今月26日(金)には、エッセイカウンセラーのJohn Coukeさんと共同でMBA出願対策セミナーを開催致します。

先月にセミナーではJohnさんからは、Kellogg Schoolの2014年度のエッセイ課題を用いて、主にCareer Goal型エッセイを書くにあたっての指導方法をシェアいただきましたが、今回はColumbiaのエッセイ課題をサンプルとした書類の作成方法に対する解説を予定しております。同校への出願希望者の方々はもちろんのこと、これからエッセイに対して考え始めるという方々も含め、たくさんのtipsを吸収してください。

そして私の担当パートでは、推薦状作成に関する注意事項等を中心に解説させていただきます。推薦状は推薦者の支援や協力を多々要しますが、出願者と推薦者間での連携作業によってクオリティーに満ちた内容へと仕上げていかなければなりません。ご存知の通り、レジュメ、エッセイ、そして推薦状にはそれぞれ入学審査用書類としての役割があります。その役割を理解した上で各書類を仕上げることが、総合的な出願書類パッケージのクオリティーを向上させることへと繋がります。

皆様とお会いできることを楽しみにしております。
