Hi guys,I can't believe no one w/ bad grades asked about this yet..I recently discovered a passion for international law, and got all "A's" on a study abroad program sponsored by a high ranked school. I am REALLY interested in an LLM @ NYU, or if not: a school in DC (georgetown, american, or george washington), or UCLA. However, my law school GPA is not that great (pretty much in the middle of the class), my school is around #60 (last time I checked), but I think my resume is lenghthy & 'rocks'. I have various honors and a lot of experience, including pre-law school work @ reputable companies, a judicial clerkship, some public service, and small-medium firm experience. I'm also fluent in quite a few other languages and my transcript shows some improvement (1st year is what plagued me badly). Also, I went to a top 10 undergraduate straight from high school and graduated w/ a 3.8.thus, I feel i can 'rock' the personal statement, b/c my strengths are my life story, my experience, and my 'believed' and proven potential. But the JD grades, of course, are a mess. did any of you (or someone you know) NOT graduate at the top 50% of your class, and went on to do an LLM @ a top school? If so, where? or can anyone suggest what else I could do at this point to tip the weight to my favor? (publish something, work more yrs.? etc...) oh, i also plan to take and pass my state's bar exam before applying. thanks for any help or input!!!
