TRANSFER CHANCES? HELP?

Postby lawschool7777 » Mon May 24, 2010 3:14 pm

3.68 gpa, definitely in the top 10%, probably closer to top 7 or 8% (3.5 first semester, 3.98 second semester), school is first tier ranked 40-50, went to good undergrad and have a masters degree. What, if any, T14 schools are worth applying to? Thank you.

Anything outside of HYS is worth applying to...after that, its all up in the air. Transfer admissions is a crap shoot.

Thanks. Also, are there any schools that I am likely to get into? i.e., are schools in the lower 14 likely to accept someone with my stats? or are my chances just as random as schools in the upper t 14?

Def go to the thread megaTTTron suggested, but as far as transfer-friendly schools, Boalt and GULC both take big transfer classes. I'd say your chances are great at GULC, and definitely worth it to try for Boalt. Good luck!

Do not listen to the second part of this statement. The first is pretty solid advice though...
