    Well you better go to an RG for sure because its even harder to get into Law in the states. You think the UK system is elitist with Oxbridge/Russell Group dominance, you won't like the US. There its pretty much Harvard, Yale or Stanford to get into top firms, maybe just 5 others after that. The NY bar is also extremely difficult with notorious pass rates. The US system is far harder to qualify in so if you dont like the difficulty of the UK system, you don't have much luck for the US. A Man Met LLB will not get you anywhere decent.
    You would really need to do an LLM in the US (which I believe the poster is contemplating), but agreed - you make it much harder on yourself if you have a duff LLB.

    Getting onto a good LLM (which will cost a hell of a lot) will be harder with a duff LLB and if you don't have a good LLM you are at a disadvantage in working in the US even if you do manage to pass the bar exam.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
