GPA 3.7 - LOOKING FOR LLM IN THE US


mexcampos

Hi everyone, I'm from Salta, Argentina, and I would love to study an LLM in the USA. These are my credentials:

- Law School GPA 3.7 from Cordoba´s National University
- Recognition as one of the best students of my class
- Published work on tax fraud in Argentina and the special procedure
- Volunteer experience cleaning roads in the outskirts of my city with classmates
- 3 years of work experience as a Clerk of an Appeal Court of Law
- TOEFL pending (I will take it in July) (Have the CAE)

The thing is, I have problems with an application through LSAC because my university will not send the transcripts the way is intended.
I have finished my degree a year ago.
I also will need financial aid to pay the LLM

These is my top universities: USA: NYU, Harvard, Texas at Austin, GW, Georgetown and Stanford.

What do you think my prospects are?

If you need financial aid to pay for the LLM I'll say it can be more difficult than you thought. NYU Law School is quite expensive and the living expense at New York is extremely high. I think you have pretty good chance to get admitted by UT Austin and Georgetown. You have to take a chance to get into Harvard and Stanford.

Thank you for your insight. I also believe Texas is a great fit. I'll definitely take a deep look into Georgetown.

You have a fantastic profile! I would think Texas, Georgetown, GW and NYU will take you very easily and give you a decent financial aid offer too. SLS and Harvard - you should definitely give it a shot, I think you have a fair chance at SLS!

I think you have a good chance at T14. What I did before applying to law schools is going through the old thread in LL.M. Guide with a ton of threads about each law school's application. I find it useful when some of the admitted students talk about the grant. It is daunting to dive into these old threads but it is worth looking upon. 

Duke, Georgetown, Berkley, UCLA, Northwestern, Texas, and Northwestern should be good for you, and give a shot to Yale and Harvard. No one knows what will happen, right? Other  top 30 schools on U.S. news should be listed as your safe schools.
