LSATs effect on transfer

Postby lawnoob » Thu Mar 03, 2011 2:33 pm

I am currently right on the top 10% mark of the T2 school I go to in New York area. I am strongly considering a location move, and am worried my LSAT is going to cost me the ability to transfer.

I am looking at moving to CA, FL, or Fordham/ Cardozo, if my LSAT is 158 right now, which schools am I going to have to retake the LSAT to get into if I maintain top 10% or to put it better, how much of a factor is my LSAT going to play in transfer admissions?

I want to move into T1 or the highest ranked T2 schools in those areas

LSAT scores are not relevant in law school transfers. First year grades are the most important factor.

Maybe, but maybe not if attempting to transfer to Yeshiva Cardozo or other tier two schools. Grades & class rank are most important.

LSAT has NO effect on transferring. I am a non-URM from a t4 school with a sub 160 lsat and I pulled a t10 acceptance.
