So.. not to completely hijack this thread but what effect does being international have on one's admissions chances?


Basically you get a rating among your peers/school and what really matters is your LSAT.

International students have significantly more weight put on their LSAT since law schools dont have to report their GPA


Kinda off the topic, what if you are international (not US citizen) and goes to UG in the US?

Any U.S. UG student will have their GPA counted. Foreign UG students' GPAs do not count.

just wanted to update for anyone with similar numbers who might be in my position:

ended up retaking in december based on advice in this thread, but canceled my score because i really messed up the logic games. thought i was doomed for WL/rejects from my top choices. in january i got into nyu and columbia (faculty review at berkeley...wah). so there is hope! :)
