Transferring: Rank vs. Location?

Postby themaninblack » Wed Apr 13, 2011 1:59 pm

Would it be easier to transfer (first year grades being equal) to a school such as UCLA from a higher ranked school, for example the University of Iowa, or from a geographically similar school, such as Loyola?

Don't go to law school thinking about transferring.

Knock, I'm going to have to ask you to refrain from giving legitimate advice until... September 27th. People who are worried about it this early on should be allowed to stew. It builds character.

Comparable class rank at a higher ranked school will afford better opportunities to transfer. This shouldn't factor into your decision even remotely though.
