Improving your chances


Hi,

If a hypothetical struggling law student X failed subjects during his tenure in law school and graduated with a mediocre GPA or QPI he has a serious impediment towards getting accepted into an LLM program is that correct?

If said student still wants to pursue an LLM what can he do to improve his chance of being admitted? Getting glowing recommendations from alumni of that school? get phenomenal scores in his LSAT / GMAT? Get a congressional medal of Honor? Anything short of giving up on the dream?

We're not talking about Yale or Oxford or Harvard here (unless there's some way in). But this guy really wants to pursue an LLM but is afraid his poor performance in law school will bar his admission.

Hi,

I think that the best and easy way to improve your chances to get accepted is having a solid resume with great achivements.

Also is helpful to explain why you got that GPA... maybe you didnt have too much time because you also were working, you selected the hardest professors and courses, you were immature... and also to explain why the things will change if you get accepted.
