TTT Transfer OCI with URM

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jul 02, 2012 1:02 pm

I'm in the Top 12% of a TTT school, transferred into GWU for the fall. I'm having a VERY difficult time with my OCI list, because A) The stigma of TTT is so hard to shake and B) I don't know what my GPA at my old school means for the cut-off's at GW!! I'm bidding EXTREMELY conservatively to be sure I will at least get a nibble or two.

The only thing I feel is helping me slightly is that I'm a double URM - Hispanic and LGBT. I'm hoping that being Hispanic can help right on the resume, since they can readily tell that, and the the LGBT part will come across during the interview (I might just wear hoop earnings to make sure it does... :lol: )

I'm also devoid of any substantial WE (I've been interning at an Immigration Public Interest firm since January, but that's about it), because I'm very young. As in I'll be 20 during OCI interviews (here's to hoping I actually get an interview!)

So, I guess what I'm asking is this - how screwed, or well poised, am I for OCI? Does URM Status help at all, or does the TTT, top 12% screw me beyond that.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
