LoL. You'r right. With such a spelling mistake leave aside the scholarship, i might not get admitted into a Law School.

I'm glad they offer merit scholarship. Thanks for the information. :)

Law School Applications / Law School Scholorship?
« on: September 18, 2008, 06:17:14 PM »
I was going through lawschoolnumbers website and saw alot of people getting scholorship/financial aid in some form. There were some International Students who were offered scholorship too. I went through webpages of different law schools but couldn't find any material on Scholorships or financial aid for International Students.

Does anyone have an information on Scholorship or financial aid for International Students? Are International Students even eligeable for scholorship or not and which school gives out the most scholorships?

Because it's not a tyical 4 years undegrad degree i am going through. Everything in my case has been accelerated so i just thought it might be a little unconventional for the selectors and might diminish my chances specially incase if i go abroad.

Btw when you apply for a Law School, do they ask for the transcript from the ongoing Fall semester aswell or just the transcript from the first three years of the college? In other words do they really care about your senior year grades? Most of the decisions i assume are made by March/April and by then senior year spring semester grades are not available.

Thanks. I will do that.  I'm an International student studying here in the US. I really want to attend a top Law school!

I think i'm pretty much in the same spot but a little worse i would say.

I got admitted to undegrad university with almost a full year of advanced credits. So, i started off with sophomore standing. I took two summers and a whole academic year ( which makes a total of 4 semesters) and now i plan to study abroad for the whole year. When i come back i'll be left with just two courses which i'll complete in the summers after my arrival back.

Would this have an affect on my application or chances to get into a top Law School? I have a very good GPA from a very reputed university. I am confused, will my accelerated track have any affect on my application?

Thanks Lavahead. You can't be more right on that:)

Oh my bad i should have been more clear. I'm going for a year abroad to LSE. Would that make my chances of getting into a top Law School any better or is it just the LSAT and GPA that counts?

I'm in the same dilemma. Either a PHd or Law School.
