International Applicant

Postby ayannako » Wed Mar 24, 2010 1:59 pm

I'm going to apply to US law schools from a European Law School. I completed K-12 in the US, and then went abroad to study law. I'm not sure exactly how my European GPA converts the US system, but it is around 3.5-3.8, so, here are my stats:

3.5-3.8 GPA
165-170 LSAT
Have a law degree from a European university
Recommendation from a political figure
The curriculum was very, very challenging
Dual US citizen

I'm applying to (just listing my top choices):

Boston College Law
BU Law

Without an LSAT score and a definitive GPA, we can't tell you much. A 170/3.8 is vastly different from a 165/3.5 (to the tune of making the difference at every school on that list).

Also, Brown doesn't have a law school.

:lol: You have an excellent shot at Brown but I would definitely shoot some apps to Princeton and Darthmouth
