Hey, Cig, are you out there?

I recall you got an offer from LSE for masters, I'm applying for Dev. Studies at Cam and LSE, I hope you can give my PS a read!

Or is anyone else interested to help? :)

For the scottish students! Or English students but I'm not sure how your schools work!

I'm brushing up my resume for my law school apps and was wondering if you put your degree like this:

MA Honours English
Degree Classification: 2:1

OR something like

MA Art History (BA equivalent)
Honors 2:1

And yeah should i anglo spell honors?

THANKS SO MUCH

Hi, fellow internationals. I thought I'd post an update here in the spirit of camaraderie and information exchange.

So far:

In: Columbia, Northwestern, UCLA, Vanderbilt
Out: Harvard, Berkeley
WL: Chicago, UVA
Held: Michigan, Penn
Pending: Yale, Stanford, Duke (like everyone else), WUSTL (not sure what's going on here), USC (???), NYU

I'm glad to see all the successful cycles for folks on this thread. Good luck on the remainder of the cycle! I'm actually in the middle of a green card process currently, and I'm hoping I get it in time. If not, I will consider deferring. The hoops we internationals have to go through :D

So any consensus on what we should use as GPA on LSP if we have "superior"?

About median, or just over.

Does anyone have any experiences to share for an undocumented U.S. resident? My friend was born in Asia, immigrated to the U.S. with his family as an infant, and has been here without status ever since. Technically, I think this will make him an international student, but obviously he won't be applying for visas to study in the U.S. How will his application be evaluated in regards to residency? Will he still quality for merit aid? Any advice or direction is appreciated.

This is another whole conversation but I think law schools check on immigration status and the bar exam would certainly be a problem...

I'd say more like 75th unless i'm not remembering people's lsats correctly but it seems like a few superiors got in with below median lsats. also i'd like to think that above average is more or less at the median but we'll just have to see.

Just got an incomplete email from Yale and called, apparently they need the Dean's Cert from my overseas graduate institution (other schools told me overseas schools are exempt). Does anyone have any idea who the Dean would correspond to in the UK university structure? Can I just give it to the head of the Department? The head of my college?


Probably depends on the structure of your institution. If you went to a collegiate university, I'd say probably the Principal/Provost/Dean/Head of your college. If not, probably the head of the Department. If I were you though, I would DEFINITELY call admissions at Yale and ask them specifically so as to avoid having your application delayed further.

Anyone else a little concerned about not fitting in at school in america. I mean just reading through the amount of threads where people say they should go on facebook less during class, NO ONE and I mean NO ONE had a computer at lectures at my school. Thats just one of the many things I worry about not to mention the utterly completely different social life at a european university. I don't know I'm starting to get nervous.

I'm actually really looking forward to this. 8-hour take home exams? Getting to type exams?? OPEN BOOK?!?!?

It's just inconceivable. And awesome.
