The pre-reqs are a GPA (converted international GPA acceptable) and an LSAT score. Incidentally, these will also predict your chances.

My understanding is u mean to say that my undergrad degree with LSAT scores and apping will suffice to get in to law school in USA?

Yup. Which is why we have far more legal graduates than legal jobs, and why most people on these forums will tell you that law school is a bad idea.

Finding a job after law school and paying off your debt is the hard part.
