Can I get into Harvard/Stanford LLM with a GPA of 3.4/4.00 ?


it21
I am from India. I have completed my BA from Delhi University (a top university in India). Post which, I studied in the UK for four years, completed my LLB with a 2:1 (63.75 %) from University of Nottingham (a Russell Group University), which equates to a GPA of 3.33/3.4 out of 4.00 according to US GPA grading system. I also have an LLM in International Commercial Law from University College London (UCL) with an average of 71% (Distinction (70%) in all subjects including dissertation and two academic prizes).

I am currently working at a tech law firm (possibly the best in India) and work with some of best tech companies in world. I currently have a year of work ex. My bosses are from HLS (well known in the tech law forums in India). My work revolves around policy and commercial drafting. The work profile is very diverse. I also have one publication. I wish to apply for an LLM in tech law to either Harvard or Stanford.

What do you guys think are my chances of getting to the top schools? If not, where else would you suggest I apply for a masters in tech law and related commercial laws (like venture capital, private equity, etc.) ?
