Transfer to Duke & OCI: how competitive am I?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jul 29, 2012 3:35 pm

Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any insight how a transfer into Duke or another bottom t14 is regarded by interviewers?

coming from upper tier 2, top 10%, invited to law review, 2 years legal work experience.

I am told that I interview very well (i guess we will find out when it counts).
I bid extensively on NYC. In alphabetical order, my top bids include:

Alston Bird
Baker Hostetler
Cadwalader
Cahill Gordon
Kasowitz Benson
Milbank
Morrison Foerster
Paul Hastings
Proskauer Rose
Vinson Elkins

Thanks

Some do. But I transferred because my old school's placement was weak overall. It does better in IP. but so does every school.
