Transferring to Michigan

Postby ilovetosleep » Mon Jan 24, 2011 10:28 pm

We just got our fall grades today and I received all A-'s. My dream school has always been Michigan. I applied ED last cycle and was ultimately rejected. Do I have a chance at transferring from U of Minnesota (my current law school) to Michigan? I understand Spring grades are a component.

Yes, if your grades remain consistent you have an excellent shot at being admitted to Michigan as a transfer. I'm guessing 3.67 puts you around top 10% on a B+ curve so I'd give you a 60-70% chance.

What is your class rank? Looks like your school curves on a B+, so my guess is that you're at around top 20%. You're not an auto admit, but it's probably worth a try if UMich is indeed your dream school.

Minnesota does not release class rank unless you are applying for an internship or research position that requires it. Thanks for the information guys!

Oh our classes are curved between a 3.0 and 3.3 if that matters.
