brooklyn $$ vs pepperdine

Postby Jchouu » Fri May 07, 2010 11:29 pm

So i've narrowed the choices down to brooklyn with 24k merit scholarship vs pepperdine. I'm going to try to transfer at either school (obviously i know it's not a given no matter how hard I work, but you aint gonna transfer if you don't try).

Soo, which school would probably be better to transfer out of? I want to transfer into a t-14 or a t-25 at the very least. I know a lot of people will say pick the one where you would be ok graduating from and all that, but for anyone else who has different input please let me know. thanks

You've already answered your own question. The other question is foolish.

For once I agree with Dante.

The credited response is pick which one you like better (i.e. fits your goals better) and then when you're there and enrolled try to get top of your class so you can transfer. Most likely you won't be the top of the class or able to transfer but its a good goal to aim for like you said. If all things were absolutely equal then you should choose Brooklyn because of the scholarship, however its a little worrisome all the "Brooklyn Section Stacks" threads I see popping up (but you knows if there really true)

Anyways...Hmm...I would say top 5% at either should let you get into a T20. I don't know that top 10% would cut it honestly since transferring seems to be a very competitive process. I don't know if there's reliable data on what type of numbers top schools expect from transfers, therefore there are no "locks" in terms of % for transferring to a T-14, just the higher you are the better obviously. But don't be an idiot OP: there's at least a 95% chance you won't have the grades to transfer to a top school no matter how hard you work. That's just a fact of life in law school.

Thanks for the advice. yeah, I'm not stupid and I'm big on the numbers (the statistics) I just wanna know the upside cuz I already have an idea of the downside.
