Yeah, I have a feeling if you individually ask the schools they would tell, but I think they'd be upset if I asked and then posted on TLS lol.

Maybe the best bet is getting current students from the schools helping out

I would seriously be in your debt if you could find out acceptance rates. I know someone posted that one LR article but I don't know how accurate it is. It puts Michigan and Duke's acceptance rate at like 35%, which just seems unrealistic.

I think there is an LSAC data set available on this, Ill take a look for it in a bit. Im not sure how up to date or accurate it is, but it had some good info in it.

Well for now all I have added is how many students matriculated, obviously these acceptance rates are probably higher then matriculation, and the only total app data i could find was the self reported numbers from school.

Ill work on finding more details.

Yeah I have no idea if this is consistent thing, the ABA data is from last year so at least its up to date. I don't know if it was a one year thing, or a new trend, but I think some schools are using it as a way to get more money and not effect the rankings, so its plausible.

Well, that may just bump NU a little higher up on the list.

You have work experience too right? NU really makes a lot of sense. Plus they have really placed well in the last year even with the Economy sucking.

Ok I added UMN and UIUC because they both take a fairly significant amount of transfers, any other schools I'll add if asked, but since Im really only planning on applying to like 4 or 5 of these schools Im gonna stop here unless others want more.

Im still at a dead end on the OCI info. Its particularly tough because there just is not info available post economy collapse.

Well obviously this is dependent on my grades staying the same (or hopefully going up a lil bit) but as of now HYS, Berkeley and Chicago, maybe UCLA.

And I will work on OCI data more when i have a clearer head, Ive been sick today, which is why I got a lot of this done haha. I think there has to be some info out there.

Yeah, Ive thought about ED, but in all honesty i know it sounds crazy but I think id take Berkeley over Chicago right now. My one B+ in Crim is killing me right now for HYS I think, but its worth a shot if I can move up a lil bit this semester.

Hey man, I understand. In terms of quality of life, it's hard to beat CA weather. Chicago is freakin bitter cold.

That'd be great. I wonder if they only care about respectable jobs or if just a few years of pre and post UG work experience will be at least sufficient to get by the WE requirement.

Dude, I so hope you nail one of HYS.

I think from what i recall that does cover the WE as long as its full time. Personally Im straight out of U-grad so I would have no shot with it haha.

and thanks, I bet you get a T-14

Gotta love the odds that this would be the school I'd basically choose over any non-t14. :roll:

Haha.

I find it amazing that over 20% of Cooley's class transfers out. That is on top of the insane attrition.

I think with UW if you have solid ties and a good reason to be in the Northwest you would still have a good shot even with the low admission last year.

Yeah, I have significant ties to the region, so hopefully that helps.

Haha, the Cooley registrar's office probably has a standard form procedure and its own line to the front desk for sending 1L transcripts to other schools.

Sorry if this is elementary, but what does this mean? Only two accepted transfers attended WUSTL this year? I thought WUSTL was pretty transfer friendly...

The sucky thing is that Washington was going to be named Columbia but they submitted the name "Washington" to show their patriotism and get statehood sooner than their population would allow........
