    Hi guys!

    I've looked around but can't seem to find advice applicable to my situation so thought I'd make an account and ask.

    I'm currently an MSc candidate in Comparative Politics at LSE and was wondering how an MSc is calculated when it comes to U.S law school admissions?

    I dunno what my GPA is but from rough calculations it seems a bit subpar (high 2:1) but i'm aiming for distinction at postgrad if my dissertation hold up. Would GPA for postgrad be calculated instead?

    Is it seen as a good or bad thing to have a postgraduate degree before law school? I can see it coming across as being a bit indecisive, really, but surely having a masters isn't bad?

    Has anybody had experience with U.S law schools that they'd like to share? I'm shooting for the big Ivies really (swinging for the fence and all that) so if anybody knows how admission works over there I'd be grateful for any advice!

    Thanks!
