Should I even consider applying for LLMs?


Hello guys, I'm studying in my first year of master's degree in a pretty good french law school, I graduated last year with an overall grading on my LLB of 12/20, which ranks me in the first 25% (over 1200 students).

I know it's a pretty shitty GPA, but I'm still willing to apply to some Chinese LLM, sadly, I'm not even sure it's worth the application fee considering my pretty average GPA in LLB. I got an 8 at the IELTS test, but I have no professional experience yet, so my academic records are basically everything I have.

Should I, in your honest opinion, even consider applying to Chinese LLM such as PKU, Tsinghua, Fudan or is it definitely impossible? Are there any other options I should try to explore?


Thanks for your answers guys! Have a good one

Hi,

My suggestion would be to focus on why you wish to pursue an LLM in the first place rather than your gpa. Getting a place in any University would depend on many factors-co-curricullars, moots, publications etc. Grades are an important part of it, no doubt about it. but if you are determined to pursue masters, probably try and beef up your resume by publishing some articles or getting some work experience.
Dont get disheartened just because of your gpa.


All the best.
