Dear, I hope you are well.

 I am a 26 year old lawyer and wish to apply for an LLM in the US next year.

Lucky for me, I'm from a country with a low average of applicants per year and I have a strong academic profile, as well as 3 years of relevant experience both in the best law firm in my country but also in the public sector.

However, BIG problem here: my grades at law school are not good enough. My rank is among top 10-12% of my class. I've never failed an exam but not a really good rank as you may notice.

I'm aware that my chances to get admitted to Harvard are little, but I wanted to know if you think making a good personal statement and essay could increase my possibilities. Is there some similar case of your knowledge?

Thank you very much in advance for your kind help.
