Law School Discussion


« on: December 18, 2010, 10:40:33 AM »
Hello! I'm new to this forum. I'm currently studying a LLB degree, but would like to earn a JD in order to practice in the US (I'm a US citizen living abroad). There are some programs that allow you apply first to a LLM and then apply for a JD, and at the end of the 3 years.. receive both degrees. This is what I would like to do. I would like help:

    * University of California, Boalt Hall School of Law, in Berkeley, CA.
    * University of Chicago Law School, University of Chicago, in Chicago, IL.
    * Columbia Law School, Columbia University, in New York, NY.
    * Cornell Law School, Cornell University, in Ithaca, NY.
    * Duke University School of Law, Duke University, in Durham, NC.
    * Georgetown University Law Center, Georgetown University, in Washington, DC.
    * Harvard Law School, Harvard University, in Cambridge, MA.
    * University of Michigan Law School, University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, MI.
    * New York University School of Law, New York University, in New York, NY.
    * Northwestern University School of Law, Northwestern University, in Chicago, IL.
    * University of Pennsylvania Law School, University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, PA.
    * Stanford Law School, Stanford University, in Palo Alto, CA.
    * University of Virginia School of Law, University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, VA.
    * Yale Law School, Yale University, in New Haven, CT.

I would like to know information on admissions to these universities: which favor more grades and numbers/have a more holistic approach/value projects you've participated in..etc.

Thank you!
