Could I get admitted to top schools?


Hello, I've been reading about admission requirements for different LLMs in the US and UK.

I feel like I would be a good candidate for any of the top schools but I know there is a lot of competition too so I would appreciate if someone could tell me what are the odds that I could be accepted for an LLM at NYU, George Washington University, Columbia, King's College, LSE and Queen Mary University.

I'm mexican, female, 26 years old, bachelor of Laws in a top university in Mexico with an average of 86 from a 100. Very good english (113 points on TOEFL iBT), potential good recommendations, a lot of social service and volunteering, great work experience (2 years as an intern and 2 years as a lawyer).

Please let me know your personal opinion?

Thanks!

Good to know that at least I could apply to GW and maybe get admitted.

Thank you Awinn!

I think you have a decent chance for all of them.
You graduated from a top school in your country with a good gpa. (and probably with a good rank)
You have been in practice of law for 4 years.
You got a great score from TOEFL which is more than enough to apply every school you want.

In my opinion, do not even think about applying to GW.
Try your chance for Columbia, Stanford, Harvard, LSE, UCL, Yale, NYU, Berkeley, Oxbridge etc.

Good luck and be optimistic!

Thank you johnlennon for your opinion!

I'm getting my hopes up but I think you're right, maybe I should try with the top schools first and see if I get admitted. I'm glad you think my background could help me get in some of those top schools.

Thanks for the support too.
