People are actually trying to be helpful (except for the killself suggestions). If you didn't want to know the answer, you shouldn't have asked. Do whatever you want, the decision you make doesn't effect us. Good luck.

let me get this straight. philosophy is a great major because it makes you write extensively, yet you make so many typos that some of your post is incomprehensible. i have no idea what "unuarentedd" means. i have a high tolerance for typos since this is a message board, but at least make the words semi-cognizable.



I can't disagree with you on that. However, my inability to type quickly and correctly has nothing to do with my writing abilities.

OP, killself recommendations aside...

You asked our opinion. Are you making a terrible decision? Yes. Your odds of transferring out are very low, and your odds of transferring to a school worth going to at sticker (see: top 20, maybe?) are almost zilch. You should NEVER go to a school you wouldn't feel comfortable graduating from because transferring is a very difficult thing to do. Every single one of your classmates is thinking to himself/herself, "I will do well and get a job." You know how many of your classmates will? Not many.

What are your other options? What are the T1s you mentioned?

Awesome flame. I want to know who it is, you have to be a TLS regular to make a flame this good.

vcole wrote:thanks and no thanks everyone... i nevr said i didnt get in to other schools, i actually got in some t1 schools, however none of tehm are giving me money, and my reasoning was o attend a t4 with help do well transfer out and attend a t1 that i will not mind paying the 60K+ annually. I cannot get any loans (inetrnational student) and I am paying all out of pocket. The T1 schools I got into are not my 1st choices. To my defense those of you who dont think ohiloophy is hard have never really applied/understood philosophy it is a lot easier to claim that something uncomprehensible is fluffy garbage than it is to actually attempt to understand it. i dont want to get into an aruemnt about philo but I do know for certain that philos. majors are regarded as one of teh best major for law shcool alongwith history and english since tehy allmake you read extensively and write analytically which is more or less your 1L.

My LSATs were lower than what I expeceted and by the time I took them it was either sacrifice my studying for classes to study some more for the LSAT with an unuarentedd possibly same score, OR stick with what I have and rock the rest of my app which is what I did.
And to all the haters/doubters out if you dont set the bar high you'll never achieve anything in life. And whether you believe it or not or think its flmae or w.e, i aways DO manage to get what I want.



Never stop posting.

depaul and brooklyn law both schools in big cities with high cost living which I cannot afford. Again, I AM PAYING FOR SCHOOL IN CASH, which means NO LOANS, NO DEBT, AND NO EXTRA MONEY. SOOO, an extra 10K or more a year makes a really big difference when it is coming out of my pocket in about two months versus over a period of 10+ years in monthly pmts.

Again, I am an international student which means I NEED to be in school in order to LEGALLY stay in this country so taking time off is NOT an option...

If you're willing to drop out if/when you don't get the grades to transfer to somewhere decent, go to Coastal.

OP, out thyself!

First time posting actually... and i have taken into considerations your comments everyone and am actually opting out of attending coastal although my intentions to transfer still hold.
To the "transferring out is impossible" people: on my OP i stated that i applied very very late because of personal circumstances (sent in all my apps mid May) which is mostly why my T1 options were basically out of the question. Had I applied earlier I am sure I wouldve been accepted to some T1s and T2s because I am not just an LSAT or GPA score.
Therefore, I need to look at my options now and plan for the future. I need to finalize my decision which is basically between Coastal and now RWU Law which is offerring me even more money, by tomorrow.
