On the second page of the link it tells you which courses satisfy the 12 credit requirement. I know this doc is by Berkeley but it applies to eligibility in general.

12 credits is only 4/5 classes. The public interest law requires you to take 5 classes to satisfy the specialisation. That means that your 24 credits are already eaten up! No other choices available unless you want to load up on classes which again is limited. (you're allowed a max of 14 credits a semester at UCLA) - so really you could only take an extra 2 credit class each semester.

Guys, thank you so much for giving me Vic Telesino's email!!

I have just received a personal apology that he had taken so long to get to my application - and I have received an admission and a Dean's Scholarship!

I'm really happy. Thanks for you help :)


Congratulations!!! That's great!

I read on the papers that I received with my admission packet packet from USC, that if you are a qualified lawyer in your country you don't need those credits. I might be wrong though

Ps. Congrats!! Check out your PM

That is correct. I haven't seen any info about requirements for foreign trained lawyers effortlessly, though.

Yes! You're totally right :). Sadly I'm not qualified in my home country. I passed our equivalent of the bar but I haven't trained as a solicitor so I'm not eligible as a foreign lawyer.

Thanks Emily, congratulations to you as well! I am still waiting for the other schools that I've applied but guess UCLA will be the one at the end. I've already started to search for the housing options:)

The two are so close that I think it's going to come down to personal opinion. I'm waiting until I receive the decision from Berkeley before I make any decisions.

Sometimes I think one of the best ways to decide a school, is simply to see how you react when you receive the decision. The school you get most excited about is probably the one you should be going to!

I think that is an awesome way to decide when someone is struggling about where to go!
Thank you for such a great advise!

It's all too easy to get swept up in ranks and prestige, I know I'm certainly struggling with choices because of it... but really it's most important to go to the school that your heart is most set on!

I applied before the deadline and no email saying the application is complete... And no answer.
I emailed them but no answer.
Are some of you in the same situation?
