NYU/HARVARD/CORNELL


akotsaki

Hi everyone! I’m applying to Harvard, Cornell and NYU and I just wanted to get an opinion on my chances. I just graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a 3.7 gpa. Before that I received a foundation diploma from King’s College London from which I graduated with a 4.0. In terms of work experience, I have done two internships with barristers, which are hard to get and coveted, one in crim and one in family law. I’ve worked as a student adviser at the legal clinic of my university and I’ve done two solicitor internships. In terms of extracurriculars, I was Vice-Captain and Treasurer of the Varsity Lacrosse team, wrote an opinion column for the uni’s publication, was a contributing writer for the Bar Society, volunteered, received a language scholarship and I speak four languages: french, arabic, english and greek. By the time I submit my apps I will have done another internship with a solicitor firm and volunteering with the citizen’s advice bureau. Thoughts? Thanks for your help and time!

Apply early. Next year will be quite competitive, with new applicants vying for limited spots due to deferrals this year.

Your qualifications look good. Highlight any publications (your best ones). If you're not a native English speaker, get a great TOEFL or IELTS score.

Do you have a minimum of 2 years work experience? I was accepted with a high 2.1 (69%) but when I was researching I noticed HLS general admit 67.5% (3.75) and above. What chicken_soup said is correct it will be very competitive. Apply but do not be discouraged to reapply again if you don’t get in as the limited numbers for admission will be insane next year. 

Good luck

Thanks for the input! My work experience does cover two years but only during uni not post uni.
