Sure. I am from the US but I have done my LLB undergrad in the UK. I'm in my final year right now. I have a high 2.1 for my first year, and a 1st 70.5% average for second year. My LSAC report was evaluated 'Superior'. I am ranked 4th in my class of 246. For extracurriculars I have volunteering experience in asylum and immigration law, and I am the editor-in-chief of the Law Review at my University. In terms of work experience, I have had internships with private practice and in house general commercial law. While I have not had formal legal employment I am hoping this will be enough to satisfy the universities :).

How about you? What is your top choice Uni?

Oh okay.. that sounds pretty good! I'm sure u will get in to a few places at the least :)
I am from India! Graduated this year. Graduated top 10% of my class- First Class is what we call scores here. I have pretty good internships from quite a few top law firms in my country. I have also worked in my family business. I have work experience for the small period of time since graduation in June. Currently doing an apprenticeship under a senior counsel I had previously interned under. I have great extra-curriculars- professional dancer and carnatic music singing for nearly all my life. I have a range of service activities- which I have been doing since I was 14- free service at hospitals, lots of charity work like sponsoring education for poor children etc. I have been teaching english and basic computers at a school for under privileged children since july. I have also received an award for community service from The Governor of my state.
I honestly hope I get into a few good places! I don't have like an order of preference but ofcourse, the best school for me would be Columbia! I just want to do well with whatever I get. :)

Hi Guys,
I am also applying to UCLA (31-10-2011 completed). I am very worried because UCLA is my dream school but I don't know if i'll get in.
Mi credentials are:
- studied in the number one law school of my country (Chile). My grades are not good. I am not at the top half ("average").
- master of laws in the number one law school of my country. Very good grades. "Above average".
- 3-4 years of work experience.
- one publication in labour law.
- LORS from the dean and LLM director from my school.
- TOEFL 105

With that said, does my grades in my master improve or change the fact that as an undergraduate I had bad grades?
Could a letter of support from a current chilean LLM student help my application?
I applied to Berkeley, UCLA, San Diego, USC and rejected by Georgetown (this is what i am worried about)
Please, replys are more than need it.
Thank you and good luck all.

hey! grades do matter.. and work ex also helps. I don't know how the school will look at this.
But with regard to your LOR, I think (not sure) some schools accept it when it is submitted independently by the person.. but some schools also make it clear that it will not play any role (like cornell for ex). U should call the school and check with them once.

Hi,

I'm in a similar situation to that of my chilean colleague. Graduated from the same university with above avarage grades (CAS evaluation "above avarage") Toefl 113 LORS from Vice Dean and Professor with PHD. Did quite a few of teaching assistant positions during my studies. Have 3 years of formal legal work experience in top-ranked firm, plus internship in NGO and paralegal work in another prestigious firm. Publications in specialized magazines (non-scholary but strictly legal magazines)

I Don't have masters degree or extracurricular stuff that you can actually describe as anything different than "hobbies"

It's nice to know that other people from my uni are applying.


My question is: ¿do you think that grades count considering on the university that you come from? For example superior grades from second tier university beats above avarage grades from top ranked uni? Greetings from Santiago.
