international experience....Where should I apply?
« on: October 23, 2004, 10:02:55 AM »
This is my first post....so....Hello!
I really hope I could have found this site before I started my application....now I'm in the middle of it.

I am a US citizen. But I have lived in Taiwan for 17 years.
My native language is Mandarin.

Here are some numbers.
UGPA in the best University in Taiwan (Zoology): 3.4
Junior/Senior UGPA: 3.9
LSAT:166 (good enough for a non-English native speaker, I hope)

I have a master in Biological Science in UCI.
And 1 year WE in a patent consulting firm in Taiwan.
Male. No disease cured. Happy middle class Taiwanese family.

I hope to work for international law firms or international biopharmaceutical companies in the future. Particularly companies that have branches in Asia.

Here is a list of schools I'm considering applying:

[Dream]
Harvard
Stanford
Columbia
NYU
Michigan

[Far reaching]
U Penn
U Virginia
Duke
northwestern
Cornell
Berkeley
Georgetown

[Reaching]
(UCLA)
(USC)
George Wash.
Boston U
Boston C
William & Mary

[Expected]
UC Davis
U Wash
Fordham
UC Hasting
Indiana --bloomington
American
Temple

Is this a reasonable list? Am I wasting money?
Are there any other schools that are not included in my list would also fit my career plan?

I appreciate your help




Thank you for your help.
