I'm a foreign student who graduated from a liberal arts college in the United States. I'm also getting a Master's degree in a month from another US university. However, I am a citizen of a foreign country, and I am unsure of how this would affect me in the law school admissions process. It seems that law schools do not enroll many foreigners in their JD programs, and as such I have very limited information.
I am Asian, but I wonder whether that would affect me or not, since I am not a minority US-citizen. I have heard that Asians generally need higher than average numbers because they are overrepresented (particular in the top law schools). Does this apply to foreign Asians as well?
I am planning on taking the Sept. 30 LSAT...I have not started preparing, since I am still in grad school and busy writing papers to submit to academic journals (I'd like to stop that and start studying now, but I'm on a research stipend). So it looks like I'll only have time to start studying for LSATs in early-to-mid June. My undergrad GPA isn't as high as I'd like it to be, since I majored in a hard science. My LSAC adjusted is 3.66, which seems a bit low for top schools...it's such a shame, since I graduated #1 from my department (our average GPA was a 2.9).
