Top 10%~ish at Wayne State (.01 below last year's top 10% cutoff)

Aiming for Michigan, though tossing snowballs chance money at Cornell and Duke.

Odds?

Hey Folks--

Finally got all my 1L grades, looking for people's opinions on my chances this transfer cycle.

I have a 3.69 which makes me top 6% at #35 school (approx. 14/245). Chance me!

Harvard
Stanford
Columbia
Chicago
NYU
Berkeley
Northwestern
Georgetown (got deferred EA and went up 1% since then)

Really appreciate it!

I think the only way that you would be able to have a decent shot at any of those schools is to be safely within the top 5%, and even then, I wouldn't feel comfortable about your chances unless you were one of the top 10 students.

i'll give this post a bump for totally selfish reasons. he and i have the same gpa from the same school, and basically the same list of apps, so this is two for the price of one.

do a good deed. also throw in chances at michigan for me.

Current School: T4 (California)
GPA: Fall - 3.61; Spring - 3.68; Cum - 3.64
Curve: Mean is usually set at a 2.3
Rank: Fall - 6/195; Spring - not out yet but my cumulative GPA is higher than last semesters #2 ranked student so I'm probably moving up.
Schools Applied to: GULC (applied EA got deferred), GW, American, George Mason, UCLA, USC, UC Hastings, UC Davis, Pepperdine, Loyola.

Reasons for applying to the East Coast schools: my parents live there and I grew up there. Also my father has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and I want to be closer to him.

Realizing that M is really the only one with an even reasonably small chance, and the other apps are mostly for "well, it doesn't hurt except for the extra $100" shits and giggles - my good friend who graduated from Michigan is the one who really pushed me to apply. I really didn't want to and am still not certain I would go, given my career goals, even if I was accepted... so... Snowballs chance in hell.

I realize I'm aiming pretty high, but I don't think I would transfer anywhere else. If I don't get into any of these, I'd be perfectly happy to stay where I am.


Anyone care to give me some false hope?

Grades finally in, so I figure I'd throw this out there and see who bites.

School ranked in the 60s-70s
From Philly - far away right now and would prefer to be closer to home
3.9, Top 1% (4.0 fall/3.8 spring)
Booked Civ Pro, Torts, both Legal Writing

CCN? MVP?

(and yes, every one of these schools is closer to Philly than where I am now)

nice work! i know you want to stay close to philly, but with that gpa AND class rank, why not consider throwing out apps to HYS?

top 18% at santa clara (low T2 in CA)
IP law; already passed patent bar

I need to get out - what schools are my best option? Preference for west or east coast, but open to the best school I can get into regardless of region...

Care to explain, even a little bit, why you think this?

I want to stay in Michigan - WSU has a much better alumni base in MI, and generally places better into those firms based on my research.

I go to TTTT and finished with a 3.2 that is good for 21/128 which is roughly 16%. I am attempting to transfer to a TT in the 60s school that is my undergrad university, also located within the same state. Any thoughts of my chances?

Vronsky's percentages seem about right, maybe a little pessimistic. I know people with those kinds of numbers who got into Chicago.
