Usa without having to entering in extra exams so the bachelor degree will be counted as one?

I think the point is that your question is unclear.

It sounds like maybe the OP is trying to wiggle out of having to take the LSAT. Thats the best I can figure.

In which case, OP -- if you go to an unaccredited school I think you can get out of taking the LSAT.

Did any of you finish a bachelor degree abroad in any third world country and then came to US to attend Law School? If so, did your bachelor degree accepted to the Law School you applied or did you have to take extra exams so your bachelor degree would be accepted in Law School?

Yes, you still have to take the LSAT even if you have a bachelor's from a 3rd world country. Actually that's more of a reason to require you to take the LSAT since your English is bad.

Put differently, even if you were a lawyer in your country, you still have to take the LSAT.

I think OP's Q is: Is an international undergrad degree plus an LSAT score sufficient for enrolling in law school, or is additional coursework/testing required in order for the international degree to be accepted as a bachelor's equivalent?

I think more specifically, you're asking if you will need to take a test in order to have your bachelor's degree accepted. This is probably country- and school-specific. I would contact the LSAC (Law School Admissions Counsel).

Whoops -- yeah, the above poster.

The international undergrad degree + LSAT is sufficient. IIRC LSAC takes care of evaluating foreign undergrad grades.

I think some schools require a certain minimum score on the TOEFL.
