Chances of getting into Berkeley/NYU


Hey guys, how are you?



I´m making this thread in order to ask for your honest opinions about my chances of being accepted into either Berkeley or NYU. I´m asking about these two specific schools because they fit my profile the most, seeing that they offer great corporate/business programs.



I´m from Brazil and graduated about 3 years ago with a 3.02 GPA (I converted it myself, so I don't know if LSAC will lower this grade or not), I know it isn't the highest GPA, but in December I will finish an LLM program here in Brazil and if all goes well my final grade will be the equivalent of a 3.5 or higher.



In terms of professional experiences, I'm currently working as a lawyer at a boutique law firm with a focus on corporate structuring, succession planning and agribusiness operations. In December I will complete 2 years in this position. Also, while I was getting my bachelors degree I interned at law firms and at judges cabinets.


Additionally,  I do a lot of volunteer work and was involved with the Athletics Association of my university, being responsible for coordinating our rugby team.



So, given this information I would like to ask what are my odds of getting into Berkeley/NYU or other law schools with the same prestige. Thank you sincerely for your attention.

You'll definitely have a shot.

There are however a number of other unis with great corporate/business specialization. Look at the rankings.

I agree that you have good chances to get in. I’m also from Brazil, and I have been accepted to both. If you need any help, feel free to send me a message :)
