Taking the Year Off

Postby Wolverine21 » Mon Aug 09, 2010 1:56 pm

If transfer season did not pan out the way you had hoped it would, has anyone entertained taking the year off from your original school and re-applying next year? Is this even feasible/possible?

It seems like this year was very competitive and schools rejected marginal candidates. Top 2% at T3 struggled with T20, etc.

I honestly wouldn't take a year off. I would try my best to be a visiting student at a school that had a spring 2L transfer cycle, so I could get credit for it for that school, and my home law school. (a little working the system, I guess).

If that didn't work and I honestly seriously thought I was in the wrong place, I would try studying abroad for the fall semester, and then do the spring transfer cycle.

It sounds kind of like "I'm a clueless 0L".

1. I am a rising 2L.
2. I attempted to transfer into the T14 from a T3 regional school with stats (Top 2%) comparable to students in the past who successfully transfered to Georgetown, Michigan, Northwestern, etc.
3. I am waitlisted at a T14 and denied at the others.
4. It was mentioned to me, and I was simply wondering if one could drop out of his current law school (not take any classes his/her second year) and re-apply for transfer admission Spring 2011, seeing that this was a competitive cycle.
