I'm an American citizen, currently 24, and I moved to The Netherlands at age 18. I studied the language for half a year and then applied to the University of Amsterdam, where I earned a degree in Scandinavian languages and linguistics and Dutch law (in total 2 bachelors and 1 LLM, because you cannot be practicing law in The Netherlands without an LLM). The LLM I earned at Utrecht University, because it ranked higher. Unfortunately, the first few years my GPA wasn't outstanding because I lacked the same language skills as my fellow students. During the first 3 years, when I was studying Scandinavian languages and cultures and linguistics, it was also extremely difficult for me to get good grades because we needed to translate a lot. It's safe to say that I took a very difficult task upon myself.
However, during the last few years my grades improved and I finished my LLM "cum laude", 4.0 and in the Dutch system above an 8 average. I took the LSATs once and got a 171. I was wondering if I have any shot at the T14 schools.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
