International transcripts can be viewed as an advantage and not a hindrance when applying to law school.
Having some of the best law schools in the world, it is not uncommon for The U.S. to be inundated from all over the world applying to pursue their law degree in one of these schools. It is typically a smooth process for most academic fields, especially the sciences, however, for international students that process for applying to a law school might have its challenges, more so if the English language is not your first language.
There are three things that once you know them, can really assist in paving your path on the law school application process.
1. The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is not really understanding what you read
2. Your language disadvantage can be turned into an advantage
3. Your Grade Point Average (GPA) might be actually better than you think
