Who is Mike Jones?

He is a rapper from Houston who reps the Swisha House label. Don't you watch 106 & Park ?

(1) Yes, your GPA would go up for LSAC purposes because they DO count A+s as 4.3.  So you'd probably do pretty well.

(2) I think you'd do pretty well in the admission process, given your numbers, but keep in mind that you will be considered an international applicant. 

This means that, in addition to being accepted to a law school, you will have to demonstrate sufficient funds for cost of living and attendance (among other things) in order to have your student visa approved.  (You can apply for the student visa only AFTER you have been accepted to and have committed to attending a particular school.)

In terms of probability of getting into any particular school, check out their website and see how many international applicants they accept, etc.  That should give you a good idea.

Thanks so much for the information. I'm actually doing an MA in New York so I've become a veteran of dealing with Homeland Security's many requirements.

This is probably a horribly naive question, but how do American schools look upon applicants who got their BAs in Canada?

Swisha House 4 ever

I found that having studied philosophy and political theory helped a ton both with arguments and RC. Those args questions resembled *&^% we did in first year. Also any social science/humanities student can attest to how much quicker they read and retain information as a result of their studies.

You may be talking about a different Sunstein, but Cass Sunstein is at Chicago. Also, is your interest a particular legal theory or a strong theoretical faculty in general?

strong theoretical foundation in general. I studied political theory for both my BA and MA so I have an appreciation for that type of approach. Even though I now want to study something more practical I'd like to be somewhere where I can still take courses relating to my personal interests and get into a little Kelsen vs. Schmitt talk (I'm such a f-ing nerd).

Does anyone know which schools are strongest in theory? I know that NYU has Dworkin, Sunstein, and Nagel; and that Nussbaum is cross-appointed at Chicago. Are there any other schools people would suggest for someone interested in studying law from both atheoretical and practical perspective?
