My chance as a foreign national?

My chance as a foreign national?

I have a pretty decent lsat: 169. But I am not a US citizen. English is not my native language either.

Somebody just told me schools will strongly prefer US citizens. Is that true?

Although my undergraduate degree is from overseas, I have the highest graduate degree in Computer Science from US. Since I have been here for more than four years, my English is fluent. 

But just the idea that being a non-citizen can hurt me chance really makes me uncomfortable, although I can't say anything to that. Is that true that for a non-citizen to get admitted you have to be better than US applicants or they won't admit you?

I have not found that to be true. In fact, I'm pretty convinced that top schools will want to have at least some foreigners.
