Georgetown 2011-2012: Seat Quota and LSAC


1A

1) Is there a seat quota for each LL.M. program (e.g. They will accept x number of applicants only for the Securities and Financial Regulation program.)?

2) Is the use of LSAC (for transcripts) absolutely mandatory for foreign-trained lawyers?

Thanks in advance.

hey, let me help you out!

1) they probably do (at least I believe it is reasonable to do so), but I don't know if they are that strict;

2) Yes. I sent transcripts without LSAC and they asked me to do it (application was considered incomplete). (it is pretty useful, so don't hesitate to make a subscription).

Thanks a lot, Janis :)

Did you apply for 2010-2011? What program did you choose?

I'm a bit hesitant to use the LSAC because I don't know how it evaluates a transcript.

a) Does it include your undergraduate/pre-law grades in the evaluation?

b) Does it provide an explanation or other comments beyond the classification, e.g. superior?

I've likewise read a post that one doesn't have any control over whether the University will rely upon the evaluation only or whether they will look at your original credentials as well.

I applied to Georgetown through LSAC but they keep on having problems actually getting the report from them (the only University where this has happened). I've had several emails saying Georgetown has requested it but not been given it so just keep an eye on your app to make sure it was received. Given the cost of the LSAC I find this intensely irritating (although I have now accepted a place elsewhere). Oh and I'm also a foreign student, it includes whatever you tell them to include and as far as I know no evaluation other than attesting that it's all authentic.

Hope that helps a bit....

It shows an evaluation according to your country (explanation - degree, non degree, etc), something like that. But don't worry that much because the Admissions Committee is used to evaluate on their own, so it wouldn`t make much difference.

In my country, there's no undergrad., so there are no pre-law grades. But if you're supposed to send them, it might be there...

My opinion is that they look directly to your transcripts, not the LSAC evaluation.

I've chosen for Georgetown among the ones I was admitted!
