how about withdraw from law school and apply another again?

Postby Amadeus » Mon Mar 07, 2011 5:10 pm

If anyone has any experience with, or knowledge of, applying to law school after having withdrawn from one.

Here is my situation: I currently study in a 3rd tier law school. Although my performance in the first semester is not so bad (about top 33%), I want to leave here because some compelling reasons. Based on my GPA and Lsat, I have the chance to go a 20-30 law school(I made a poor choice last year). I do want to transfer. I just want to get a new start.

My question is this: How do I best overcome any doubts of my commitment that a admissions committee may have? If I have to withdraw from this school, should I withdraw now or keep studying here until taking finals, which one is better?

Thanks a lot!

If the reasons that you have for wanting to make a change, truly are compelling, I'm sure there's room on the transfer app to explain (write essay, addendum, etc)...right?
