I have four years of undergraduate coursework in Jurisprudence, but no degree from a University outside of the US. I have my academic transcripts evaluated by http://www.eceinternational.com/ to be equivalent to the US Bachelor's. I don't think any more reputable foreign credential evaluators or LSDAS would give me equivalency without a diploma. WES refused, are there others, more flexible?
Law school I'm trying to go to told me to get Bachelor's degree from an accredited US school. What is the quickest way to get a degree in my situation?
US schools talk about valuing diversity of the student body. Is it mostly for PR or will it really add some points to a good story-teller?
What I have to sell is a history of fighting poverty while growing up in a closed city of a totalitarian country, suffering a severe personal injury caused by a hate crime against me. Large portions of the epic will be supported by great references from professors.
My undergraduate degree is in law (possible in my country) with a GPA of 4.0. English is not my 1st or 2nd language that's why I don't hope to score as high on LSAT as some of you guys.
If my LSAT score is slightly lower (let's say 160) than median at the school to which I'll apply (163), will being a minority make up for some of it? How much are personal statements and references worth against LSAT scores?
Thank you very much!
After receiving a horryfying 147 on my practice test I signed up for Testmasters and decided to invest another 100-150 hours in addition to the class time. Do you think it should be enough to bump my score up to 165+? English is my 3rd language, so it takes me a bit longer than a native speaker.
How many hours did you put into preparation and how did it change your score?
