TBF, I don't think there is anything wrong with curiosity on this issue. I LOVE Wash U and I would be really happy graduating from there (and I plan to graduate from there), but I would still be interested in what it would take to transfer to HYS and CCN. Just asking the question does not mean a person is intent on transferring, and not all of these types of questions deserve to hear the, "ONLY GO TO A SCHOOL YOU WOULD BE HAPPY GRADUATING FROM!" response. Perhaps OP, like myself, is just curious. As long as a person recognizes that transferring up (especially from a T1) is just a pipe dream, then there is nothing wrong with looking into it... if anything, it will just make them work harder, and that can't be a bad thing.

While I agree with the sentiment, I get the feeling that a vast majority of those who post these are not merely curious.

Thanks ben. But doesn't your advice violate the FORBIDDEN RULE of not going into a law school with the intent of transferring?


Yes, but fortunately that rule is forbidden so it's okay to violate it.

Any chance at YLS at top 1% just out of curiosity? (bite my tongue!)


I'd probably say no to all of HYS even if you are the #1 student in the class. One of the top students at your school could probably get Columbia/NYU but it's still not a given.


If you are number 1 at rutgers, Id say its almost automatic that you'd get into NYU or Columbia. You'd have a decent shot at HYS.
