先日の投稿では出願締め切り日を共有しましたが、本日はNYU LL.M.のエッセイ課題などに関する情報を確認したいと思います。
http://www.law.nyu.edu/graduateadmissions/application-required-materials

Personal Statement & Resume

All applicants must electronically attach to the online application a brief personal statement of no more than 500 words. Applicants may describe their professional interests and goals, or they may use the statement to describe aspects of themselves and/or their work that are not apparent from their other application materials. Applicants should include their reasons and qualifications for applying to a particular program or specialization.

  1. 同校のエッセイ課題は毎年500 wordsで出題されております。同校のように字数を制限しないスクールもあることから、まずは制限を設けていないスクールの(エッセイ)課題から着手することをお勧めします。
  2. GoalsはShort-termとlong-term goalの内容を含みます。
  3. このキャリア開発時期にLL.M.を取得したいと思う理由
  4. Qualificationsを伝えるためにも、これまでの(主には)仕事上の実績について述べます。

All applicants must also electronically attach a résumé or curriculum vitae to their application. This document may be one to two pages in length, and should account for all education and work experience, as well as any period of more than three months not spent in school or employed. Publications, presentations, or other career-related information may also be included.

1.レジュメは必ずしも1枚とは限りませんので、まずはレジュメに記す実績等を整理しましょう。
2. LL.M.アプリカントの中には、Publicationに関する実績をお持ちの方もいます。自らの専門性をアピールする機会ですので、レジュメコンテンツとして活用していきましょう。

Due to the large number of LLM applications that we receive each year, the Committee on Graduate Admissions is not able to read or consider writing samples, articles, or research papers submitted with applications. Instead, publications, academic presentations and the like may be noted on an applicant’s résumé or curriculum vitae for consideration by the Committee.

◆上述にもあるように、追加書類等の提出は控えてください。

Any additional information an applicant would like to share with the Committee on Graduate Admissions that is not already present in the other application materials may be electronically attached as an addendum to the online application.

◆追加書類等の提出は行わない代わりに、オンライン願書の特記事項欄(addendum)を活用し、必要に応じて、レジュメ、成績表、エッセイ、推薦状にて言及されていない情報を述べてください。

【FAQサイトの活用】:NYU Law School編

前回のColumbiaに続き、出願者間で人気の高いNYU Law SchoolのFAQサイトを確認していきましょう。

Q.What is the minimum TOEFL or IELTS score required?
The Committee requires that applicants who take the TOEFL achieve a minimum total score of at least 100, a minimum score of 26 on the reading and listening subsections, and a minimum score of 22 on the writing and speaking subsections. For applicants who take the IELTS, the Committee requires a minimum overall band score of at least a 7, a minimum score of 7.5 on the reading and listening subsections, and a minimum score of 7 on the writing and speaking subsections.
→同じ100点を要求するスクールでも、総合スコアのみもあれば、NYUのようにセクションごとで設定するケースも珍しくはありません。短期間で多量の文 章を読み講義に集中する能力が問われるLL.M.プログラムの特徴も考慮し、ListeningとReadingセクションのスコアがその他よりも高めに 設定されています。これは他校のMinimum TOEFL Requirementにも見られる傾向です。さらに出願戦略を考える上では、各校のRequirmentの度合いに対しても把握しておきたいこと ろです。この部分を抑えておくことで、必要以上の時間をテスト対策に注ぐことを回避し、出願書類の作成に配分することができます。
