LLM admission at UCLA or USC


Hi

Im Egyptian who obtained first law degree from cairo university with 80% overall and currently completing my LLM program in international commercial law at university of bradford, UK. I also had an internship of 3 weeks In a multinational law firm in london Called DWF. Im actually planning to apply for another masters in US so I would be able to pursue my career and know more about the american law in practice. My choices regarding universities were UCLA or USC Gould however Im a bit concerned for my chances to get accepted in any of them as they are one of the top law schools in the world. So, Does anyone know What is 80% equivalent to in terms of GPA? And how likely are my chances To get accepted?

I really need your help guys so I would appreciate anyone answering.

Thanks in advance

Its good enough for both. The real question is whether you have the money to pay for the education?

Hi KhaledMabrouk,

Generally speaking, I believe that the overall percentage of 80% is equivalent to around GPA 3.80 (In my country, I got the overall percentage of over 80% which is equal to over 3.80 GPA under my university's comparison). I don't know whether your uni provide any calculation methods to compare the percentage with GPA, may be you need to figure it out by asking the faculty.

However, another important factor is your ranking. Even though you obtained that percentage, but if your ranking is in the top 5% (or better), your chance to be admitted to good unis is very high (but some unis require professional experience as well).

Best of luck!
