Transferring to better school??

Postby Lawstudent3000 » Sun Jan 29, 2017 6:49 pm

First, when is the optimal time to put in a request to transfer? I have a feeling it was two weeks ago when my grades came out, but can an application submitted in march still make it? On the GW website it said until June, but I'm guessing that's just "technical" and submitting that late makes it nearly impossible.

Anyway, I'm not at all sure I would want to transfer, and it's more of a pipe-dream due to perhaps some unsolved ego issues. I'm on an 80% schol, and posted a first semester at about top 15% of the class, with a GPA of 3.550. Dean's list cutoff (top 20%) was at 3.400 so I recon I'm around top 15%... What are the odds of me getting into GW, or is Georgetown too far out of reach? (And does it help that I made the waitlist to GW for 1L last year?)
Thoughts? Thanks.
