I don't usually point stuff like this out, but this is pretty presumpuous.

ChiTown...sorry for asking. I'll be more careful and selective about asking questions in the future to save you the time typing out a response. :wink:

Does anyone else sit here and idly check the status checker every day even though you know it won't change anytime soon?

Or is that just me?

Oh yeah. It's officially a habit at this point, and not a healthy one at that.

According to the yahoo group it looks like last year it was end of april (23rd or so). Prior to last year sometime around the 1st Friday in April. I'm hoping that it doesn't get later this year and we find out right before/during finals. I think it would be rough to find out the day before starting finals that you got deferred. Might amp the pressure up a little bit.

I expect to be rejected so I already prepared myself for the ding letter.

I am expecting a ding as well, so I would probably die instantly of a heart attack w/ even a deferral, haha.

A'nold from what I can tell you have a pretty competitive chance. Of course, nothing is guaranteed in transfers, but why not be an optimist? After all, you did fork out the cash for an app fee.

He does it to hedge, so as to protect his ego in case he actually does get dinged. It's similar to OS before matriculation where "all she ever want[ed] to do [wa]s PI," but after hitting top 10% last semester she's now gunning for biglaw.

I wouldn't give A'nold so much shit for it, if he just grew a pair of balls and went after his goal remorselessly (as in no more hedging).

Defintitely not trying to give the man shit. Just some encouragement. As for myself, I'm all in. If I get dinged it'll hurt, and I'll just have to do that much better this semester so I'll have a chance of transferring somewhere good.

Of course you would get a deferral. Why would they ding someone who is top 5% and first in section? Plus, you applied PT. It's not like you applied to Harvard or something...

Posts of this nature are getting a bit annoying to be honest. Especially in that you know full well that you have a good shot at least with the regular decision.

Whoa, sorry if I'm annoying people. I'll just stop posting any thoughts about my chances. I honestly put my chances at about 20%......

Do you guys not see some of the numbers on this thread alone?

Sorry if my posts look like false humility or hedging, I really do feel like I am in the lower rung of applicants.

I didn't know that OS was looking at biglaw either.

Edit: btw, I was responding to like 2 other posters' concerns about being rejected, so what makes my situation different? :?

A'nold - chill out man! You're fine. You've got killer grades in law school and you have the opportunity to transfer to some awesome schools. Relax and don't let TLS drive you crazy.

3.67 gpa on a 3.0 curve from a school in the low 80s (no class rank). This should be good enough for a deferral at least, no?

Of course. I'm glad to see you did well, afterglow. Looks like you made a good decision in attending your current school.

3.57 (A Civ Pro, A- Contracts, A- LAWR, B Torts got ffffed) School is ranked in the 70s. Does not rank. Two LOR from Law school Professors. Summer Federal Internship lined up + 3 Different Pro Bono projects.

Odds for both PT and FT?

I believe my school does curve at 3.0 (the mean in all four of my classes was roughly a 2.9-3.0). I have to be in at least 20th percentile as I made fall honors. Is this helpful?

Thanks again!

random guess says you are top 15 % probably... maybe top 20 %

i dont think you'd get in EA, and you'll probably need to crack the top 15% and at least the top 10% to have a great shot RD

(im guessing you go to northeastern)
