【LL.M. 2018年入学用出願締め切り日】Vanderbilt University

Vanderbilt Universityの出願締め切り日が発表されました。

Applications for the LL.M. may be submitted from September 1 through April 30.

LL.M. Selection Process

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. We make decisions on individual applications as quickly as possible, although the time required may vary from case to case. We evaluate each application thoroughly, reflecting our belief that the quality of the educational environment at Vanderbilt Law School benefits from considering a broad range of information contained in each application.

Note: Vanderbilt Law does not have a minimum score requirement. In general, we look for a TOEFL score of at least 100 or IELTS score of 7.5. We also look at the breakdown for listening, speaking, writing and reading to ensure that all indicate a high level of English proficiency. However, a lower score in one area or overall does not automatically preclude an applicant from consideration for Vanderbilt’s LLM program. Applicants whose test score(s) falls below the targets set forth above, should feel free to highlight any specific issues in the personal statement portion of their application they feel might strengthen their application in this regard, such as time spent in English language environments, work done in English, English language publications, etc.

★ TOEFL vs IELTSスコアの乖離
両テストの換算表では100 vs 7.0になるはずですが、同校では7.5が要求されています。

足きりスコア、もしくはそうでないないのか。VanderbiltのようにPersonal Statementの紙面を利用し、自らの英語力を伝えることもできるか否か。テストスコアは入学審査場重要ですが、それ以上にテスト、レジュメ、エッセイ(personal statement)、そして推薦状、願書(application form)を通じて発信するメッセージを意識しつつ、出願準備を進めてください。
