CUHK JD Chance

Hi everyone,

I'm planning to apply for both HKU,CUHK and CityU JD program and as the application for CUHK is gonna be the first one to be opened, it would be great if you guys are willing to evaluate my chances of getting into the program.

I am currently studying philosophy at UC Berkeley with CGPA 3.64 and also graduating this semester. My projected final grade will probably be no lower than 3.5. I don't really have any relative working experience (actually, not much working experience generally either).

What would be my chance of getting admitted to the program? Would it be pretty low?

Thank you for helping me out!

A graduate to be in Berkeley is of quality with CGPA of 3.5 should not target CUHK JD. CUHK JD is as much as cityu JD in term of student composition, syllabus.

You should aim at HKU JD if you want to be a lawyer in HK. To start with, HKU JD is more likely to qualify a seat of PCLL compared with that of CUHK and cityu on grounds of JD intake. Also, the ambiance of JD is more lively and active than others.
If you are learning-oriented, HKU JD is at top of the pecking order.

Thank you for your reply.
I think I'm gonna apply for HKU as well, since I'm really not sure how competitive it could get for JD admission (from what I heard HKU takes only roughly 20-30 students each year..) so I'm just gonna apply for each school and see which one would take me.

3.5+ at UC Berkeley is almost a 100% chance to get into CUHK JD :)

it's alright if you got no law experience at this moment (as it's irrelevant to your admission), but I suggest you to get an inte ... [/quote]
Thank you for your reply.
That helps comforting me a little:loveliness:, I will certainly look into internships if I'm fortunate enough to be admitted!

Is that true that you get a better chance to get in if you apply early for CUHK?

Yes, would my major lower my chance of admission?

No, switch philosophy to law may take a while.

I see, yea I realize it would take some time for me to adjust but hopefully things will turn out right.

I have just been nervous about whether I will be admitted at all:smile_27:

take assured that 3.5+ is safe to secure a JD seat. CUHK takes 2XX students while HKU takes 4X. many chances
