*ALERT* Chances of Admission

Dear friends,

I am really interested in pursuing an LLM in the States next year, however I very unconfident with my background:

I am currently finishing my final year (finishing in November this year) of my LLB in the top law school in Australia, my grades are fair, maybe top 30% of my class. I am currently in the process of being admitted to my State as a solicitor, early next year. I have many study abroad experience (UK, China, Malaysia, Indonesia) and work experience in law firms (including top law firms in UK, barristers chambers, and property firms) during my study from around the world, and also many extra-curriculars like sporting.

I am interested in UPenn or NYU.

Any suggestions?

Thank you all.

Since your grades are good, but not outstanding, but your work experience seems very impressive, I would advise to look for schools that prioritize work experience as a admissions criteria. I know that for instance, at Columbia, work experience is very important, so you might have a shot there. However, law schools like Yale or Harvard have the reputation of being very strict on grades.

I don't really know about UPenn or NYU though. If you are a corporate lawyer, I suppose that would be relevant to UPenn, being a very corporate-oriented school, with the Wharton certificate and all.

Hope that helps ;)

Hi rosie2704 and other distinguished members,

I would also like to hear your take on my situation. I am interested in getting a Taxation LLM at the top 6 ranked US law schools for the cited degree namely: NYU, Georgetown, Northwestern University, University of Florida, Boston University and University of Michigan.

My background are as follows: I'm a CPA Lawyer currently employed by the top audit / tax firm in my country . I also have a MBA degree from one of best graduate schools here, which is where I also earned my law degree. However, I just have good grades but not spectacular ones. Despite this, I have a significant amount of working experience as an auditor during my law school days as well as law apprenticeships for some of the top if not the best law firms. Likewise, I currently teach taxation and other law subjects in certain Universities during my spare time.

In view of the above, what are my chances in getting admitted to these schools? Any tips and suggestions on how to increase my chances to get a favorable response from the named law schools. Thank you in advance.
