LOR's, PS and other stuff, can hurt you if they are terrible, but they would have to really be amazing to help.
This isn't really correct. For better or worse, transfer decisions are not the hard numbers games that 1L admissions are, so the softs are more important in differentiating candidates. And LOR's are more significant for transfers because they're written by law professors rather than a TTT undergrad prof in a TTT major. Something to keep in mind.
Also, 95% of transfer students on here have said basically the opposite of this.
I think softs might make a difference in this economy. Maybe 75% numbers 25% softs? I dont know. It is really hard to quantify how much each category is weighted. Jobs are extremely hard to get, even at Georgetown. I was thinking that having a summer position at a firm might help your chances.
What do you cats think?
I hope so - I have a real sweet summer gig.
