    I think it's quite rare given that law is a graduate program.
    I was wondering as a graduate LLM from the UK.

    Do you apply after having completed your AS's (for entry conditional on your A2 results) like in the UK, or after having completed A2, for unconditional entry?

    If the latter, how long does the process take if you only have the summer before the first year begins (with the exception of gap years) to apply?

    I'm looking to apply to a few American Universities, perhaps including some Ivies... In terms of extra-curricular activities, is it better to aim for well roundedness and so a variety of different activities or to excell in one particular activity? Thanks

    Yes, I have . One sec, I'll quote you the helpful response I got.

    EDIT: Here:

    Well if you are planning to take a gap year then you may as well take it afterwards. This way it won't interfere with revision for UK exams (assuming you are British) and you will know a lot more content for the SAT subject tests. However for the general one, provided you feel you can revise without it hindering anything else, then start ASAP. You are allowed to take them all as many times as you want and the universities only look at your top ones. Although obviously you have to pay each time you take it.

    UK applicants get interviewed by an alumnus in the UK, you don't go to Harvard. My one was just an hour chat in a cafe; very informal. When you apply using the Common App you have to submit it by 1st January but can do so whenever before then. Once you do your interviewer will be in touch. So it is whenever convenient for you. I had my Harvard interview in October and my MIT interview in September.

    I'm considering studying Law in an American University. My question is not so much how but when to start the process.

    When should I apply for the SAT?
    When should I apply to the universities?

    During Year 12? 13? During UCAS application process?

    I don't come from a very rich background. Will this affect my chances?

    What's the average grade needed to go to an average college in the US? Say if I got BBB for my A levels, would that be enough to go to a college in the west or east coast? Lastly, what's the latest time you could apply for colleges in the US, or is it not needed? Is there a clearing system similar to the UK?

    Okay, the American Law school system really confuses me. How does it actually work? Do I have to have a different degree before getting a law degree?

    Most Law schools require an undergraduate degree and a good score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).

    I have a friend who is getting her undergrad in Pre-Law and then is moving on to Law school...but yes, Law school is graduate work.

    You should apply for the SAT in the spring of your junior year (which i think is year 12 for you guys) or the fall of your senior year. you can apply for early or regular decision, and most universities have their deadlines on their websites.
    Also, many universities have financial aid, and there is SAT fee waivers too.

    Haha, I feel 'painlessly' should be removed from this thread title. Really useful info though, cheers. Other than the Princeton books for the SAT, is there any other reading you could recommend? I'm just about to go into y12 and the extent of my knowledge regarding the us uni system is confined to this thread!

    Do they look at your Predicted A level grades or your AS grades or even both?

    I know this thread is mostly for international students applying to USA unis. But I'm desperate to get into UCSD or UCLA or one of the UC's in Fall 2013 and I'm really stuck on my UC application. Firstly because, I'm a US permanent resident but have studied in UK for my 'high school' years, i.e yr 10 to 13(still in yr13), and have GCSEs, AS-levels and A levelpredicteds. Does that make any difference to my application? And when I try to fill in details in my academic history section of UC app, it won't accept my future high school graduation date or the date that I will receive my A level qualifications so I was wondering if anyone had any clue how to solve this annoying problem so I can fill in the rest of my academic history?

    How do US uni's use your A-levels and GCSE's or do they just use the SAT's? Or does it just depend on the university?

    The only question I have is about the school transcript, as others have said GPU etc are useless terms here in the UK. So do we only need to send off GCSE and A-Level results?
    Yea pretty much, if your school doesnt use GPA then you dont need to send it

    For anyone thinking of applying to any University of California schools, they don't give international aid. Just something to bear in mind when applying.

    Universities over here keep asking for transcripts from my high school counselor, which is a pain in the tooshie cuz well you all know that we get our grades directly from Cambridge. What am I supposed to do?!, will they except my O and A level certificates as 'transcripts'??? Im not even trying to get my credits transferred (I guess theyre like 17-20) I just want freshman admission. Idk why the unis here are being so uncooperative!
