International Applicant

Postby Trsk345 » Thu Jun 08, 2017 2:02 am

I was just wondering if there is any benefit in being an international applicant. Did my UG in the USA, from Canada, not a URM.

Thanks

American UG means a reportable GPA which in turn means you're an international largely in the name. And to the extent you are international, it is a diversity boost. How much of a boost depends on where you are from, and my impression as a non-Canadian is that Canada isn't as international for US law schools as say Taiwan is.

I think it actually has not given me any boost in the process. If anything, I would have gotten into better schools with my exact numbers had I been white & American. And, no, I'm not from Canada.
