thnx pra608. Do u have any idea whether there is any possibility of getting an LSAT waiver as being in India, its not possible to appear for the same as there are no centres in or around India. So its not economically viable to fly doen all the way to the US or any other country to give the LSAT

LSAT is different from TOEFL. It does not depend on what your mother language are. LSAT is the main factor of the J.D. admission selection process.

You can check at http://www.lsac.org/ whether you can take the exam at India or not. If not, you may have to go to U.S. and take it. This is one of the reason why LLM is much more popular among international students.
