Transfer Bid List

Postby donniedarko » Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:37 pm

Hi TLS,

What should an OCI bid list look like for someone focusing on the Chicago market and transferring from a T2 into NU / U of M? I know there has been some very useful insight into the selectivity of NY firms and strategies for maximizing success, couldn't find that for Chi.

Thanks in advance all,
Donnie

Kirkland should definitely be on there if you are going to NU. They love NU.

Thank you for the info! Of the firms below, are any historically less selective than others? Should I be including any that I am not? I'm pretty confident that transfers who did well at their old schools won't have the same clout as NU / U of M'ers who did well their 1L years. Thanks!

You have transfer acceptances in hand from NU/Mich at this date?

Not at this time. However I do want to be proactive about getting my research done for OCI :)

Don't waste everyone's time with a bidlist predicated on a hypothetical transfer.
