Where should I go next fall? / 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.

because I want to do law, and know a lot less than people here do.

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 Applications / class of honors
« on: September 04, 2007, 10:03:40 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 Applications / general information section

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?
