TTT Part-Time Transfer

Moved question to Should We Transfer? (Non-T14 1Ls Who Owned Exams) thread so as not to add to the clutter.

Part-time? :roll:

First off, combined doesn't mean anything because you're not taking the same course load as those who are full time. There's probably a reason your school doesn't rank you against full time.

Second, 3.67 GPA seems pretty low. What is your school's curve?

Thirdly, I think you are VERY mistaken to consider Yale, Harvard, Stanford "part-time friendly." Just because they say they might take a part-time student doesn't mean they'll consider a part-time student from TTT.

Fourth, I know nothing about your chances of transferring from a part-time program at a TTT to a full-time program at a T14, but I can't imagine they'll be very good. You might have a shot at GULC, but Id definitely apply to the PT section if I were you.

Good Luck.

Last year, someone in the Transfer results thread got into Columbia as a PT from a TTT, I believe. Not sure if it was from a higher ranked program, but IIRC it was a T3. People who were in better schools with same or better ranks didn't get in and there were plenty of surprises and upsets. You can't really predict where you'll get accepted.

I realize a 3.67 seems low, but the curve at my school is pretty bad (2.68/2.78).

I worked full-time during law school, have some pretty good softs, and a wealth of substantive work/volunteer experience. I’m not sure if any of that makes a difference or not.

I do appreciate the honesty though.
