NU LLM in human rights


fajats

Hello all, I'm a mexican attorney, with a little more than 4 years as intern (we start working in our 2-3/5 year of law school, no undergraduate studies) my GPA is 3.49 but we dont have rankings, If i had to guess I'd say i'm in the top 20% of 200 (aprox), have good grades in my human rights, international law and constitutional law courses, I am working in one of the most prestigious law firms in the country (constitutional litigation) and will have little more than one year of experience as a licensed attorney.

1) Do I have a chance for NU, Fletchers or NYU?
and
2) I spent one semester in Leiden Uni as an exchange student, does that help?

Thank you all and good luck in your applications.

haven't taken the TOEFL for at least 6 years, although I did take the IELTS and got 8/9. my last toefl score was somewhere around 231 (i really cant remember) on the computer based exam. But then again, that was 6 years ago, but I don't think I'll have trouble with the Toefl.

Also I must add that I've done over 700 hours of pro-bono work and women's rights work in rural Mexico. Plus I'm working as colaborator in the university's radio station (public radio, media analysis program).

Thank you very much for your response.

in addition to the main question, does anybody have any info on the Masters in International Dispute Settlement from Geneva University?

perhaps you may be interested in the european master in human rights (called e.ma), which is held by several european universities from which to choose where to attend one and/or both terms. with regard to the main issue, your background sounds impressive. you're very likely to get into the program. has anybody heard from NU admissions office so long?

Dear Stagista,
Thank you very much for your response and advice. Regarding european master in human rights, I will have a good look at that possibility, but, is it oriented on European Human Rights or international HRs. because the possibility of returning home is still there and I will have little use for it (i'm from Mexico).

THANKS A lot

honestly I think that european stands only for pointing out the setting where the master is held...however, we're talking about two different (or even opposite) master. NU's one has a fabolous brand and a great faculty, but the price is sky-high if you don't receive a scholarship...E.MA is very cheap compared to NU, but I can honeslty say it doesn't match NU's faculty...don't know what are you looking for by the way...if you're looking for a master abroad, for the experience in itself, and you don't want to spend all the money you need for a LL.M at NU, E.MA could deserve a better look!
