Has anyone transferred into howard?

Postby cats2013 » Sat Dec 28, 2013 7:13 pm

Im at a t4 on full scholly, could of definitely gotten into howard. But it wasn't on my radar at all. I have a 155 on my lsat. What class rank do I need to get into howard? With their deadline so early for transfers to apply (March 15), will they look at my overall rank after first semester or overall year?

Don't.
Howard's overall job stats are bad. Definitely not worth sticker.

Also, LSAT doesn't matter for transferring. Only class rank and the school you attended 1L matters.

will they look at my overall rank after first semester or overall year?


its possible you could be admitted before your spring grades come out. if you don't make a decision before your spring grades come out, they will definitely take your spring grades into consideration.

Yeah that same site has george mason at 50%, harvard at 87%, iu at 53%. I saw on an earlier forum, that this website was a complete farce.

LST is a complete farce? It's one of the best, most accurate and comprehensive sources of employment information available.

Yeah, I got it confused with another site. Howard is still a choice I want to pursue due to it being a majority black school. What rank would I need to get in from a t4? Searching here I see anything from top 20% to top 50%.

Youre willing to pay an additional 60k in tuition to attend Howard? seriously?

Above median would probably do the trick.

I feel the relationships and overall future networking will be stronger for an urm as myself, at Howard.
