Law School Applications / OPINIONS PLEASE?
« on: December 18, 2010, 02:03:01 PM »
Hello, I've already started a forum elsewhere asking about some law school's admissions. I'm trying to apply for a LLM degree in a good university. I'm a US citizen living abroad and about to graduate from my LLB degree. I'm thinking about apply for a LLM program at a good (top-ish) Law School.

My college doesn't provide rankings, but I have a 2.88/3.0 GPA, have been Dean's List every year, very involved in community service (working on a project to educate poor women in their rights- trying to fight violence against women), involved in few EC's (internationally recognized, part of the board of directors), member of a college council aiming to evaluate the academic program/teachers/faculty/structure (I work with my dean and other authorities)..participated in a fair share of forums from international organizations, was awarded a scholarship for a certificate program offered by the national university and an international organization, etc. Have little work experience (like a year), but in non-law related jobs. I'm currently working on my senior thesis. Could have great rec's from teachers and college authorities. My college is very recognized and quite prestigious, so I hope that helps.
I do know people with similar stats attending great schools, but since everyone is different I'd like to know where my chances are? Also, what could I do to improve my chances?

Any opinions on schools I could have a shot at?

Hello! I'm new to this forum. I'm currently studying a LLB degree, but would like to earn a JD in order to practice in the US (I'm a US citizen living abroad). There are some programs that allow you apply first to a LLM and then apply for a JD, and at the end of the 3 years.. receive both degrees. This is what I would like to do. I would like help:

    * University of California, Boalt Hall School of Law, in Berkeley, CA.
    * University of Chicago Law School, University of Chicago, in Chicago, IL.
    * Columbia Law School, Columbia University, in New York, NY.
    * Cornell Law School, Cornell University, in Ithaca, NY.
    * Duke University School of Law, Duke University, in Durham, NC.
    * Georgetown University Law Center, Georgetown University, in Washington, DC.
    * Harvard Law School, Harvard University, in Cambridge, MA.
    * University of Michigan Law School, University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, MI.
    * New York University School of Law, New York University, in New York, NY.
    * Northwestern University School of Law, Northwestern University, in Chicago, IL.
    * University of Pennsylvania Law School, University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, PA.
    * Stanford Law School, Stanford University, in Palo Alto, CA.
    * University of Virginia School of Law, University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, VA.
    * Yale Law School, Yale University, in New Haven, CT.

I would like to know information on admissions to these universities: which favor more grades and numbers/have a more holistic approach/value projects you've participated in..etc.

Thank you!
