I am expected to become a US citizen soon and a Bachelors of Law graduate in my country at around the same time next year!
I am on my 30’s now and am interested in pursuing an LLM in US, preferably in NY since I live here!
Finishing college took me far longer than it normally should have. Depression and having had to spend almost half of my time in US to get the US citizenship contributed to this massive delay big time.
Half of my grades are excellent, while the rest are minimal. If I i would convert my GPA into US system, that would be 2.9 - 3.0. I participated in 2 highly competitive international student conferences with some other selected students in Europe, and was offered a group leader position in another one but couldn’t be a part of cause I had to be in US. I also couldn’t be part of 2 other important ones such as London Model United Nations and another Model United Nations because of the same reason.
I speak 4 foreign languages, and wrote from time to time editorials in high school magazine. Translated a novel at 16 that was never published.
While spending that short limited time in US, I have never been able to do anything higher than working at short periods of time at Walmart, Kohl’s, Amazon etc as an associate.
I know I may not sound realistic but what are my chances of getting enrolled in NYU or its equivalents with this profile. I could have had an excellent profile. I have always been a stellar student but depression got in the way, so this is all I could do so far and it’s tormenting me.
I am sick of having to live in other people’s homes and am on the verge of ending up homeless, so in case I get in in any college, how likely I am to be supported from college or government for housing while studying
