Howdy? Hope things are good for everyone.
I am a newbie at TLS. I was engineering major in college n thinking abt law school. I've mediocre GPA (3.55) nuclear eng and great LSAT (1st:absent 2nd:180). I am international student and i have heard that being international makes things a bit tricky.
I wish I could get into YHS, but it seems like the chances r super slim, am I correct?
I am very ambitious and would love to shoot for a biglaw. I took a law course in ugrad and liked it a lot and was part of mock trial. Sadly, I didn't hold any leadership position in college and mostly I was too confused about what to do with my life. I thought I would like Nuclear engineering,but later I ended up not liking it. My softs are average as I was one of those girls who partied very seldom and worked to support herself.
Also, job market is getting better gradually. But, I heard law firms r not to keen 2 hire internationals, unless they r very top of their class. I am gonna work very hard and stuff, but is it like be a topper or else go back to home country
I have a bf who is American and neither he nor I are rich. I love him, don't know if I would marry him and people say, marrying and getting green card makes employment easier..It is a cute idea, but I don't think I am that desperate to do it as my bf is not that mature and it may take years until I wanna get married. Oh yeah, i can get loans if i want to as some relative said, she will cosign and stuff.
-what are my chances for T-10 for scholarship and admission (i love Harvard, who doesn't :p)
-what are employment prospects for internationals at T-10 who are on F-1 only (don't wanna get married for Green card, .
-finally, i wanna study corporate law,but my college adviser said, Patent law would go well w/ my boring n insipid engg. degree. I think he is kinda right coz I don't have anything to say about why corporate law in my PS except that I just wanna...but i can make something up in my personal statement about patent law being related to my ugrad major...
help me!..i am super confused..and nobody around me knows anything about law school.
P.S.: sorry for spelling, i am not usually a bad speller!
