hey that's neat....


anyway, I don't personally know any from GGU, but knew one from USF. It does seem like Hastings takes a lot of transfers though... just my general impression

Interesting...

... though getting straight-A's at GGU may be difficult, since the place might be bad for my soul.

Took 24, whatever year this report (LinkRemoved) is from.

Oh yeah... I forgot about hard facts and statistics. Probably should have looked here (LinkRemoved). 3 into GGU and 16 out? Which of these numbers should surprise me?

ETA: I know that going to a school with the desire to simply transfer after a year is a bitch, but I just realized this morning that I don't have many options. I took the LSAT the maximum amount of times allowed in a two-year period. How much would my life suck if I busted my ass at GGU for a year?

Busting your ass may be enough or it might not, it also depends on your innate level of skill in the narrow areas that law school exams focus on .

That's the generic answer. If it means anything, I wouldn't be surprised if you in particular turned out to be a special snowflake, but I think my generic response would be that just expecting to outwork everyone is not going to guarantee good grades. I know students here that were extremely diligent, and thought that they could get straight A's through sheer will power (and presumably transfer to Boalt), but some of those folks learned that sometimes sheer work isn't sufficient, and sometimes not even necessary.

You kind of have to insert your factors to personalize the evaluation, unfortunately that's all on you

I see.

Strokes chin while looking pensive

My 0L ignorance has me here. How can I figure out how well I would do in those narrow areas?

Begins to seriously evaluate own life
