Potential assessment

Hi LLM community :)

I was browsing through all posts buts didn't reach any conclusion, so I ask:

I have an ok high GPA ( 3,65)
but it took me 2 semesters over minimum required time for my law studies ( but with exchange semester) and only have done internships so far( including one in the US)
Questions:
1. What are my chances for a good/very good LLM in the UK or US?
2. How would you proceed in terms of gaining experience and getting application ready for application this fall/fall 2018?

Thanks for your replies - I'm quite lost and very happy for help ! Greetings from Austria

I would say it depends on how clear is your picture of why an llm / what will you do after an llm (i.e. personal statement) and on how good recommendations can you get. By good I mean personal.

Other than that you will be perfectly fine :)

@xea because you seem to know how it works...
allow me one more question, which would be very grateful if you could answer :)

is it right - as some postings suggest - that US universities do more of an "overall-assessment" of applications ( of course academics but also extracurriculars, second degree etc) whereas UK universities mostly pay attention to academic performance? Thanks a lot!
