I am definitely transferring, but need to decide between NYU and Columbia. Most of what I could find on these forums deals with NYU v. Columbia more generally. Does anyone have thoughts regarding this decision as it relates to transferring? For example, is one school more transfer friendly? Thanks!

Biggest difference is NYU has a special transfer write-on competition for the law review, whereas at CLS potential transfers had to compete for the pure write-on spots a couple months ago. I don't know whether one is more transfer-friendly, but FWIW transfers at EIP last year did very well at CLS.

I personally chose Columbia over NYU, but I know of others who were faced with the same choice and chose the latter. You can't really make a "wrong" decision here, so just take into consideration things like LR write-on, class size, etc.
