Help out a high-acheiver but clueless foreign law graduate


Ibasitt
So, I'm a foreign law graduate with a GPA 3.81/4.0 - The LSAC rated my grades as Superior

Having done LLB(H) from a Pakistani law school, now I want to do an LLM preferably from USA (if not then UK Australia) and by incurring as less expense as possible.

In Pakistan, basically you have to have a graduate degree from USA or UK to enter the big law industry, gaining internships, jobs and for any other good opportunity.

I've extensively searched the internet for full tuition scholarships but after collecting lots of links and doing a hectic research, I keep coming back to square one.

So, anyone here know of any LLM degrees that a student with my qualifications may get into with a tuition waiver? The school rankings don't matter really.

Sorry, my post lacks coherence but in my defence I'm making a sandwich while posting this; you can imagine how occupied I am with this problem. So, help a brother out, yall!

Your post is very coherent! It's very rare to get a full tuition scholarship. Maybe if you had something extraordinary about your background - for example if you were an Olympic gold medalist or had grown up in a refugee camp - then there'd be a possibility, but good grades, even superior grades - probably won't cut it.

If rankings or brand names don't matter, apply for an accredited but unranked school. These schools will be more likely to give you *some* funding, at least opposed to NYU / Columbia / Stanford / Harvard / etc.
