Applying as an American from a UK college

Postby CamMaths » Sat Mar 28, 2015 6:44 pm

I'm graduating at the end of next year with a degree in math, and I'm wondering how the admissions process will work. I don't have a GPA or grades, all I'll really have is my exam results from my final year (1, 2-1, 2-2,3). How will they convert this result to a GPA for the admissions process?

Assuming a reasonable LSAT (I'm at 170 on practice tests) and a 1 on the exams what are my chances at HYS?

Thanks in advance.

Check out the international applicants thread. It also has a spreadsheet so you can see how people have done. I'm also American with a UK degree, so feel free to PM if you have any specific questions.

Assuming you end up with a 2:1 or above, you'll be fine GPA wise for all schools. What matters then is your LSAT and softs.

Oh and LSAC doesn't convert your mark to a letter grade. It gives your transcript a rating that says that a 2:1 is above average and a 1st is superior.
