International undergraduate students applying to Law Schools

Postby evolute » Wed Sep 15, 2010 7:49 pm

I am an international student currently in my junior year at an university in MA. I have been looking through this forum for information related to international students and all the information seems to match up to the research I've done. However, I just wanted to confirm/know where I stand as a foreign student applying to US law schools after completing an undergraduate degree here. Any information I can get will be appreciated!
Thanks!

If you complete a degree in the US, your standing will be no different from any other non-URM American student. You will have a LSAC GPA, you will have a LSAT score and you will not have URM status. HTH!

I was in the same position once.

Start preping while you are in school (possibly during summer/winter to avoid lowering your GPA). Read lots of books. Maybe a good idea to take a critical thinking course.
