LLM and Scholarship Chances


DK20

Hi,

I am interested in LLM in the USA.
However, I don't know if it's a goal I can achieve or not, since tuition fees there are so high.
I don't see any mandatory admission requirements what makes me wonder how to estimate if it's a waste of time to try to get an offer from a good university or not.
In addition, what is the chance to get a scholarship?

Many Thanks.

I would say that the top schools offer many candidates at least some scholarship money, if not most. However, scholarship amounts will vary widely and you may end up with enough scholarship money to pay for your coffee each week (I kid, but not really...)

The top applicants will get the most money, obviously. Schools want candidates  with great grades, a good TOEFL / IELTS score, great references, work experience and volunteer / pro-bono work. The top few percent may even have scholarship money cover most of their tuition costs. 

However, most people don't fall into this kind of category.

In terms of mandatory admissions requirements, you'll most likely need a first law degree and, if your first language is not English, a TOEFL or IELTS score. Beyond that, requirements will vary and may include some kind of work experience or a minimum GPA.
