Chances of Getting an LL.M. from a T14 (Bad pre-law; good law grades)


mistych

Hi everyone,

I am applying for an LL.M. program for Fall 2022. I would really hope to get into a T14 school. I am looking at schools with strong International Law programs.

As stated in the subject, I had a bad pre-law/undergraduate final grade. The degree was heavy in maths. Fortunately, law is a graduate degree in my country. I did quite well in the law school. I did moot courts, law review, and an honors thesis.

I am worried that my bad grades from my undergraduate studies will continuously haunt me. Of course, I will address it in the personal statement (or addendum). But I am worried that some schools will not look past that. For further context, those bad grades were from a decade ago.

Please let me know your thoughts and/or advise!

Thank you!
