My situation is probably a bit different than yours but I have my degree from Oxford & I returned to the US about 3 yrs ago...I believe most European degrees are highly regarded & I had no problem having my marks translated to the US equivalents.  However, most consideration is given to your lsat such, really prepare for it.  You should register with as soon as possible--you will find nearly all of the information you need on their site.  I was able to take my lsat here in the States but I think you should be able to register to take the exam at an administering site in the UK.  If you have an exceptional score, you will qualify for various scholarships--depending on the school, you could possibly even get full tuition paid.  Alternatively, you should be able to take out a personal loan depending on your credit in the UK--I know that Barclays was prepared to provide me with a loan to pay for my tuition if it came to that.  Student VISAs are not that difficult to obtain, particularly if you are highly desired (lsat score/degree marks).  Hopefully, I've answered most of your questions but please feel free to email me.  Best of luck!

P.S.  Are you planning to practise in the States or the UK?  I know of several people that have US law degrees & work at a London firm...just curious.

Transferring / Re: Number 1 at T4: Where can I get in?

Of course no one knows, the point of this board is to get people's advice.  Why the hell are you on this board if you don't beleive anyone's advice is pertinent?

Wow...there really are stupid people on here.  I'm sorry I don't recall making a blanket statement that all of the advice given on this board was irrelevant...only that someone claiming to be #1 at a T4 is asking  "Duh...can I transfer to a better school?"  Give me a break...

I don't understand why so many people post threads like this one...who truly knows where you can get in other than than the admissions committee???  From the posts I've read on here, most people don't really have a clue.  All you can do is apply--give it your best shot & hope that the admissions board finds favor with your app.  You can ask people's opinion all day long but what is that going to tell you???  You will never know unless you try...who cares what anyone else thinks.  Just do it...& best of luck!

This is good to know...I've been seriously taking into account the difference in tuition & the money offered in trying to make my decision on where to send my deposit.  I wonder how honest the admissions staff are when asked about this?

I just got my acceptance to Toledo...but I really like Michigan State.  You've applied to both...which one do you prefer & why?

I visited Michigan State for their 'Get Ready for the Law' & was very impressed with their program for a number of reasons...they are very flexible with dual degrees, they've got superb resources & are a big-ten school.  They do believe it is only a matter of time before they are a tier 2 school--their admission stats have been steadily rising...& their IP program is ranked in the top 20 nation-wide.

I am limited to the Michigan area & as such, I've applied to MSU, Wayne State & Toledo...I've heard from MSU & Toledo...accepted with pending scholarship.  Still waiting on Wayne State.
