Admission chances at Leiden or Maastritch


cfnff
Hi everyone

i am lawer and i'm currently doing a post graduate degree in tax law at brazill.

I will finish my post graduate degree in 2 months ( expected cgpa 8.8/10) and i want to apply to Maastritch or Leiden international tax program.

My main concern is my CGPA wich is 6.98 / 10. Thing is that i have a decent work experience with Brazilian tax law ( 3 years as an intern and 1.5 as a tax lawer) and i also went to Leiden's international tax summer school.

Do you guys think it's possible to get into Maastritch or Leiden with my work experience and a good personal statement?

How did your CGPA compare to others in your course? Were you graded on a curve?

It depends. As far as I know there are now minimum GPA requirements at Leiden, but I believe that Maastricht asks for the equivalent of an upper second class honors degree. You can write them and ask if they would consider you. Fortunately, these aren't *highly* completive schools - compared to a school like Stanford or Harvard - so there might be some leeway.

Your work experience will most certainly help.

Even so: do you have any comments on GPA requirements at Leiden? I'm sure this user and potentially others would be interested to hear about that.

Hi,

You would need a 3.5/4 if you want to apply for the Advanced Masters programmes at Leiden Law School.
