3.48/ 167 Non-US citizen

Postby atkpl » Thu Nov 25, 2010 9:44 pm

I was wondering if the standard for foreigners is lower or higher.

I went to college in US (T20)

but I am not a US citizen..

Could I make Fordham/George Washington/BC/BU?

Standards are lower if you went to school outside of the US because your GPA wouldn't count (for ABA/USNWR), however you went to school in the US so there is no discernible difference.

You will probably have to convince the adcomm why you would want to pursue a US JD when you are not a citizen. There are certainly reasons, but it's not immediately clear.

Your chances to all 4 are pretty good if you apply soon.

Chances fairly decent. My school will look favorably at a 167 with a respectable GPA, since I know Fordham would like to make that our new median. Early apps matter here, though, the sooner the better.

Good luck! Also, being a non citizen probably won't help or hurt, unless you have a very unique story. If you do, by all means emphasize it!

I think you'll safely get into one or more of them.
