International student in top 10 UGrad. Advice?

Postby balenciagar » Mon Oct 18, 2010 12:28 am

Hey all,

I am a noob and am in an urgent need of advice from TLS. I do hold a US citizenship (so visa won't be an issue) but I have lived outside of this country most of my life and my native language is not English... I go to a top 10 UGrad and will be applying this cycle, took the Oct LSAT, got all the LORs but I guess I am having a more fundamental question: whether I should study law or not.

My UG study focused mostly on quantitative courses, majored in Mathematics/Economics(LSDAS GPA 3.82), and I am writing a thesis for graduation with distinction. So I guess I can write a research paper but I don't have stellar writing skills to produce an article on a newspaper/English lit final paper/or anything great like those. This keeps me to doubt whether I could survive in a law school where I would have to study with many other smart kids who majored in Poli sci/English/Pub Pol/etc and who knows how to write and present themselves well.

Any thoughts/suggestions? For ppl who've attended/are attending LS, are there many classmates who are like me(meaning, students who have studied in US UGrad but whose native language isn't English)? Have they secured a decent job by 2L/3L?
