Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 168/3.57(mainland China ), where to go?

what do you think about this then:
a chemistry phd from a european country, with lsat 170 and gpa 3.85, cannot secure places from berkeley and stanford. got offers from columbia and nyu, though.

i will be happy only if i can score a 168 also. :P given the tight curve these days.
I think the OP has performedly badly in TOEFL .... with a 168 he or she should have scored over 630 in TOEFL!

hmmmmm .... but I learnt that they admit very few international students. Boalt does not welcome international students, so I heard....
but it might be the case that there are not many international applicants in the first place.

*still worrying about lsat*

so you believe they do not discriminate against foreign candidates?
I thought they would use the same lsat standard to gauge the potential of every candidate, local or international.
i have a higher gpa, though i do not have a law background.

well, the no of mistakes i make do not vary a great deal. based on the number of mistakes I will manage a 168-170 following the old curve. but the latest curve, the maximum no. of mistakes to get a 170 is 8.

I have found out that the gpa at my non-US school is generally lower than those at a lot of US schools .... oh well... i am applying for a jd. no one in my year got a gpa higher than 3.77.

my problem:
my undergrad school awarded me both a gpa and a class honor.
I was awarded a first, but my gpa is a 3.77.
I tried to look for info on the internet, and apparently some schools award all students above 3.6 a first.

Law School Admissions / class of honors
« on: September 04, 2007, 08:03:40 AM »
is it true that there is no such thing as class of honors in the US college system, only gpa, and the "summa cum laude" "magna cum laude" .... titles?

What does a first class honors from a UK/ australian university translate into, in the mind of the US people?

3.7?
or just 3.5?

Law School Admissions / general information section
« on: September 03, 2007, 08:50:14 AM »
Will the general information section on LSAC website also be forwarded to the individual schools for reference? or will the schools only receive the forms addressed particulary to them?
