Hi LLM Guide
I have send my queries to Yale. They will not waive my LSAC requirement and I have registered for LSAC only for applying to Yale. What about other law schools like Columbia, UPenn, Michigan should I apply through LSAC for these law schools? My grades are low and I have two years of work ex as Law Clerk at Indian Supreme Court. If I use LSAC I will be below average (I am not in to 20-30 in my class) So I wont like my grades to go further down and affect my C.V.
So any suggestions to use LSAC or not, Or if I use LSAC will it affect chances for my admission.

Sappy, how do you know what evaluation LSAC has given you? They've received my transcript but I haven't got a mail from them telling me how they're ranking me.

My mistake.. they have evaluated me after few days after recieving my transcript. The evaluation took few days after they recieved my transcript. So dont worry yours will be done soon. There are four catagories Superior, Above average, average and below average. If you are not satisfied with your grading you can send it for re-evaluation. That's goin to cost you....depends on you entirely.

cheers

Hi guys,
I have sent my first law degree (completed in a French university) grade sheets along with the translation to LSAC. They are now telling me on the website that they have completed my evaluation but that I do not meet the minimum requirements for a first degree in law. But I did complete my first degree (I am now doing a master in Business law)! Did anyone get the same thing? Shoud I have converted the grades into the US grade system myself? Or is there other documents that I should have sent?

Hi ,

I don't know what is the french system of getting admission into a first degree of law but if there is some requirement of completing undergrad course before taking admission in to LLB then you should also send those transcripts.
For eg, In India you either have to do 5 year course which is BA+ LLB or as I did 3 year undergrad course in Commerce and then 3 year of LLB. So I sent both the transcripts for evaluation. Just check if that is the case.

Thank you for your quick reply.

I don't have any other document to send though. The French first law degree is a simple 3-year course. All I have is those official grade sheets which contain all final grades for all the subjects I have studied during this 3-year degree. In France there is no test to pass to get into uni so nothing about that either.

I can only think of 2 things:
- first law degree diploma certificate. I couldn't get it earlier than this week since in my univ you have to request it... But I have only one copy, I cannot get another one.
- high school diploma as this is a traditional requirement to go to uni...

But the LSAC guidelines don't mention those as documents that must be sent along.

I sent them an email asking them to explain the statement on my transcripts evaluation, I hope they actually reply.

Hi,

I'm French and I did an LLM last year. You need to have completed 4 years (which means Licence + Master 1) to be able to be admitted to an LLM. You should probably send proof that you are completing your 4th year (Master 1) so that LSAC knows you will have completed your first degree before leaving for the US...

Thank you for replying to my post!

So what they mean by a first degree in law is the equivalent of a Licence + Master 1? I thought that first degree in law was equivalent to a "licence en droit". So if I send an enrollment certificate for the year 2011/2012 in a Master in Business Law along with a translation (because my university will not provide the certificate in English) will that be enough? I cannot get any other document from my university and will not get any grade sheets before February.

Yes I guess that would be fine, and you could also tell LSAC in a letter that you will get your first grade sheets in February, so that they know.

Yes, first degree is licence + Master 1, because their definition of first degree is that you are able to take the bar in your country...

I hope it goes well! good luck!

Hi, I will be grateful if anyone could tell me that will LSAC fwd my TOEFL scores to all law schools. I have asked for waiver from two law school from appearing for TOEFL in case my TOEFL scores are not up to the point. I appeared for TOEFL to apply for yale law school LLM pogramme. Other llm programmes in USA usually grants you a waiver if you medium of instruction at law school was in English. But Yale offers you no such exemption. So if my TOEFL scores are not above hundred and LSAC sends my scores as part of my report. I will have trouble in securing admission.

guys I need help!!

I am sending all my transcripts to LSAC but I am not sure about one thing.

I would have sent them also the incorporation to the BAR association and another law degree obtained in another Country but I dont understand if it is mandatory to first forward theese certificates to the Institution/ University where I have gained the certifications and then send them to LSAC or if I can directly send the original transcripts by myself without forwarding them to the University/ Bar association.

In case can I send them all in the same envelope or they have to be sent one by one?

Please help me!

Hi!
I think you need to have it sent from the University directly! That's what LSAC requires. There is a transcript request form on the website ( your account). That has to be filled by the Uni and send your transcripts in a sealed package with sign and seal again at the flap! So basically, to LSAC, you should have not sent it yourself! Or atleast u have sent what the university has given u in a sealed package!
